Vintage Black Friday

Black, and Rusty
Lots of drawers
(that store Kidney Plasters??) hmmm.

Red Cross Kidney Plaster Box
Johnson and Johnson Company
circa 1910

Like many pharmaceuticals and simple preparations, Red Cross Kidney Plaster reflects a time when one remedy was applied to a variety of ailments. This box originally contained 12 plasters which were used therapeutically "for all aches, pains, strains and weakness for which a plaster is considered a useful remedy." Other pains from backache, rheumatism, lumbago, sciatica, lameness, soreness, kidney disorders, liver and bladder troubles, spinal weakness, muscular weakness and chest troubles were treated with the plasters.

now to display jewelry in.

And how much do you love these????
Vintage Boots.
I'd have been tired from lacin' them all the time.

Thanks for joining me for Vintage Black Friday.
Please go over to the
French Cupboard
and check out all the other sweet vintage treasures.
