New-York Historical is temporarily closed to help contain the spread of COVID-19. On August 14, we're opening Hope Wanted: New York City Under Quarantine, a free, outdoor exhibition in our rear courtyard. See more details on our Visit page.
This small white, red, pink and green box held tooth cream. It reads "Colgate's/ Ribbon Dental Cream"on one side and "Colgate's Ribbon Dental Cream/ We Couldn't Improve The Cream/ So We Improved the Tube". The tube dispenses a flat rather than round ribbon of cream.
Gift of Bella C. Landauer
