Antique 'Bleu Reckitt' advertising finger plate

Antique 'Bleu Reckitt' advertising finger plate

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.

6cm wide (2-3/8")


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