Medicine, 'Carnation' Corn Plasters Tin

About this object

This hinged lid tin originally contained 'Carnation Corn Caps'. Invented in 1922, this product became one of Cuxson Gerrard’s most famous products. It was said to have been named, rather romantically, because the colour reminded Mr Gerrard of a carnation bloom.
