    Hey everybody! I bought these beauty's on a jump sale in The Netherlands yesterday. I hope that there is somebody that can tell me more about these little tins. I know that the first three once contained grammophone needles and the 2nd and 3rd still have the needles. I would like to know from what year they are. For the last one, I guess it is for some sort of pills and I really want to know more about this little box.

      Bornyval contains Isovaleric acid, used as a sedative. Synthetic substitute for Valerian extracted from an Asian herb. (from Borneo)

      Thanks OlofZ! Do you have any idea what year it is from?

      Before 1928 at least, as they then merged with de Haën. Riedel built a factory producing thier own chemcials in 1902 so a guess would be between 1905 to 1928 or so.
