Once a year we get to go visit a collector friend of ours.
His collection is massive, no other way to describe it!
We have a few things that we were able to purchased this time around.
Always a great trip with great interesting pieces!
He is an eccentric recluse & his collection is private.
I'll do my best to pass on information from him & what i can see.
This is one of those pieces.
This is a very rare box set of antique miniature German soaps.
Unused still in original box
(Palmitine/ has a few spellings like palmitate)
F. Wolff & Sohn
Beautiful cover on the front of the box.
A little boy with his red socks, top & black shoes, shorts.
He has a kitten over his shoulder & a big flower in his hand.
Each of the 3 soaps is a different shade & all stamped on the front.
F. Wolff & Sohn - Palmitine Soap - Karlsruhe Germany
Around the inside of the box also has some lace paper.
If you look up F. Wolff & Sohn Karlsruhe Germany,
you will find some interesting information.
Here is some i found-
"Friedrich Wolff founded the soap company in 1857 and became very soon one of the largest in Germany in this industry. In 1922 the company had almost 2000 employees and in the Third Reich it was regarded as exemplary. They were the first to market creams with lanolin. Indian flower soap was introduced in 1900 and received a Gold Medal at the Paris Exhibition.
Now I'll leave the rest to you!
