This listing is for a Prof. Charles Alfred Tyrrell's Hygenic enema tonic box. It measures 3 1/4" wide by 2 1/4" by 1 3/4" high.
The box is empty, but it does have instructions on a paper label that is affixed to the inside of the top lid. Label has some spots on it.
It is a nice little wood dovetailed box that contained the tonic powder. The outside of the box has black lettering, my guess is the box is made of pine. It is in very good condition for being over 100 years old.
A great little advertising box affiliated with quack medicine.
Please look at all the pics and use the zoom.
Information found on Wikipedia:J.B.L. CascadeTyrrell promoted an enema appliance he called the “J.B.L. Cascade”. "J.B.L." stood for “Joy, Beauty, Life”. This was his primary money-maker. He accessorized the product, selling “Rectal Soap” and a fluid, “J. B. L. Antiseptic Tonic”, a patent medicine, to be used with it.[5] Tyrrell claimed that six years after his arrival in New York he had been hospitalized after a mysterious attack of paralysis and became extremely ill. He read a treatise by Dr. Alexander Wilford Hall promoting enema therapy, entered into such therapy, and experienced a complete restoration of health. In 1894, still enthusiastic about this result, he published the first edition of his book.[6] It is unclear when the actual J.B.L. device was first manufactured. The AMA says that one Henry M. Guild invented the device and patented it in 1903, and assigned his patents to Tyrrell.[I am always happy to answer any questions.Shipping is the next business day after confirmation.
