Small Tin-Vintage box


Tin box, round in shape that contained Valda's balsamic candies.
Once the tablets are finished, the golden metal boxes of the same are often preserved and reused as containers of pins, buttons, nails and other small objects.
This box is of the main pharmacy of H. Canonica, Ruè Reaumur 49, Paris.

The pharmacist in 1905 in Paris decided to manufacture a new medicine to calm respiratory tract infections.
In that year he opened a large pharmacy/laboratory next to the Gare de l'est and sold the product also on the station's quays. In France it gets great success. The following year the product is marketed in Italy and, from 1908, exported to more than thirty countries.

Sizes: 7 cm in diameter and 2.5 cm in height.
It is not in perfect condition, it has some rust stains (treated with a rust lock), and some scratches.
