Antique 1910's unused Fun-To-Wash racist washing powder box featuring a smiling African American woman in a head scarf. This box was assembled but never packed with the actual product. The cardboard box is strong and sturdy and has not been subjected to the weight of the original product. The top lids have been fully opened up, but unfolded and the bottom lids have all been folded inside the box. The edges where the lid has been folded in have weathered over time. There are also a couple of small marks and creases across the piece--visible in the pictures. One side of the box has the instructions printed in English, and the other in German.
