    fortapache
    (2938 items)

    The first of my featured Rose Bowl finds. Bought this from a dealer who always has great buys. This was on the 2 for $6 table.
    After checking out this online I found a seller who said they had one similar in the late 1940s thus somewhere in the 40s or 50s. Could be earlier. Could be 1930s. Do not quote me one that.
    Anyway the box is designed like old school zoo cages with an elephant, bear, camel and lion.
    Apparently these were never used.

      That is really great!! The only Wrisley's soap I've ever seen, until now, is old Wrisley's shaving soap and shaving soap wooden containers. Very cool!!!

      Thank you very much Scott. I don't recall seeing Wrisley soap before. I could use the shaving soap.

      Oh these are just darling! I love shaped soaps, they used to sell some great ones on Avon, and still do, wish I had collected them more carefully. Thanks for sharing these, great buy! :)
