Seller: oldlodgecolo (4,141) 100%, Location: Denver, Colorado, Ships to: US, CA, GB, AU, Item: 223654974105 Unusual early advertising match striker or scratcher for Wistar’s Balsam of Wild Cherry from Seth W. Fowle & Sons, Boston. Colorful striker states that the Balsam “Cures Asthma, Coughs, Consumption, and All Throat and Lung Diseases. The directions on the back of “The Luminous Match Scratcher” instruct you to “tack up in a room that is light in the daytime and it will shine in the dark, lasting for years.” The luminous disk in the center of the card is still intact and the striker portion appears unused. The scratcher is cardboard and measures 4.25” x 3”. Overall condition is excellent with bright colors and slight darkening from age. Scarce early patent medicine advertising item and a great go-with is you have the bottle! Offered with no reserve. Bid with confidence--all items guaranteed to be old and original and come with a 14-day return if not satisfied. Buyer to pay $3.00 shipping in the U.S. Please see my other auctions for more labeled patent medicine bottles, advertising tins, general store items, and quack medicines -- all offered with no reserve. Please save me as a seller as I will be listing over a hundred scarce advertising tins, labeled patent bottles, drug store, and apothecary items in the coming months from two private collections – virtually all with low starting bids and no reserve. I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases. I usually run auctions on two consecutive days mid-week -- if you win an item on the first day and are interested in an item or items that close on the second day, please wait to pay until the auctions end on day two. I will send an invoice after all auctions have closed.
