(See the photos above.)The Kickapoo company is perhaps the best-known of all the Indian medicine companies (probably because the name is so easy to remember.) It was very famous for its Indian Medicine shows. The beginnings of the company are a bit hazy, but there is evidence that they operated out of New York in the 1860's. Patent office recordes show that they patented many of their medicines and the bottle labels in the 1800's. At one point they got the idea of putting on medicine shows. They employed Indians, supposedly Kickapoo's, to tour the country demonstrating Indian life, and selling the medicines. It has been estimated that as many as three hundred Indians were living in the "principal wigwam" the winter quarters, in New Haven, CT in the late 1880's. Laboratories were set up in Philadelphia and St. Louis to meet the requirements of the new Food and Drug Act of 1906. The word "Indian" was deleted from the advertising. And finally The C.l. Hood Co., proprietors of "Hood's Sarsaparilla" bought the Kickapoo Medicine Company and the products were advertised in Drugist magazines until the late 1930's.Delightful and unique, "1880's Chromolithograph Trade Card for Kickapoo Indian Remedies - Quack, Patent Medicine 'Buffalo Dance'," is a wonderful example Chromolithography of the time, and would be a fantastic addition to any Victorian era collection!!!======================Please check out other interesting Trade Cards offered this week and in coming weeks by this seller on eBay. to see other really COOL, OLD stuff in our eBay Store. to sign-up for our Newsletter. .
