A rare early 20thC tin finger plate for Reckitts Blue, produced to advertise the washing whitening agent to the French Market - circa 1900 - 1910.

"Bleu Reckitt - en sachet."

A lovely little advertising plate with a central pictorial of the sachet, a small blue aquamarine tablet wrapped in paper. They were used in a hand wash to delay the yellowing effect in white cotton and fabric, but could also be used to clean glassware and crystal. 

16.5cm tall (6-1/2")

6cm wide (2-3/8")

 

Some light wear and rust marks commensurate with age, but no significant dents or losses.
