Rare Complete Set: 8 Shulton Friendship Garden Bath Salt Tubes
Add a bit of 1940s charm with this fabulous boxed set of eight bath salt tubes from Shulton in its Friendship's Garden fragrance. Ready to hang on the wall, the scalloped-edge box front is decorated with two inwardly facing blue birds, each sitting on a spray of roses in full bloom, with a third matching bird hovering above the tubes. A sprinkling of delicate pink hearts, simplistic in form, add a touch of sweet color to the background.

Measuring just under 8-1/2" inches long and 3/4" in diameter, each tube has 3/4" dark green end caps, with the cardboard tube between decorated in wallpaper style with roses, bluebells, and other bright and cheery flowers.

Like a secret message tucked behind and guarded by the bath salt tubes, the back inner panel of the heavy cardboard box reads: Rose betokens Majesty & Love - Jasmine betokens Amiability - Heliotrope betokens Admiration. The curved box top is pierced with one hole for hanging, with the box itself measuring 10-1/2" high, 7-1/4" wide, and 1" deep.

From what I can gather, Shulton first introduced the Friendship's Garden perfume line in 1939, apostrophe and all. At some point later (around the early 1960s), the apostrophe was dropped, leaving the name at "Friendship Garden". This set is of the original name production.

With an advertised net weight of 12 ounces, these appear to be unused, with each seeming to hold an equal amount of salts. The outer brown cardboard box tends to show its years, with one of the long side panels of the lid having torn away, but it's done its job well, keeping this boxed set safe from harm and in wonderful condition, with only light hints of age here and there.

If you're looking for a sweet, shabby charmer to decorate a small bland and barren wall, this one is a real winner!

Customer Reviews
The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
