What would be the chance of Amelia repackaging some of her cream herself? I repackaged my waterproof matches, cotton balls and other items to fit in my emergency pack, could she have done the same to save weight/space? I'll admit it's a stretch, but was she known to do things like that?

Here is the website page I found several weeks ago with the introduction of (milk-glass). The website is www.hazelatlasglass.com/history.html. The paragraph with the topic of milk-glass in on paragraph 4. Very interesting!!!!

These are photos of the freckle cream box I found at the antique mall here in Hays, over a year ago. This is the particular one that I had sent on to Ric and the team! As for finding this particular jar...its been very difficult and its almost like trying to find a needle in a haystack@

What an exciting and tantalizing clue is this jar! I found my way to TIGHAR after reading the recent news reports.

It appears that Hazel Atlas received a patent for their white glass in 1936. Therefore, Dr. Berry's Freckle Cream was packed in clear glass ointment pots at least until 1936 and possibly longer before switching to the white glass. This would explain the discrepancy between the found artifact and the example jars.

Things get manufactured before patents are issued so don't base too much on that date.

Would like to know more about that clear jar, when made, etc.


I believe Jeff was asking the same question I have-

Can anyone shed light on the story behind the clear glass jar with the blue cap [follow link] that was on display at the symposium?  Who found it and where did they find it?

I come across this jar ? That is very similar except it milk glass.

Reason i have posted is because some one mentioned they could only find Dr Berry's in that type of jar


Richie,

You found the clear jar?  Where did you find it?  It appears to be "fresh out of the box.''

Look for the clear glass jar with the blue cap on the left in this picture.
