Egg-shaped tins from 1909 that once contained “Bassett’s Egg Shampoo Cream”
Unusual packaging for a shampoo, but the Bassett Supply Company of Rochester, NY may not have been the only company to use it.
There was also a “Marvelette” brand Egg Shampoo Cream using “a unique package in the form of an egg” on the market in 1910. Also based in Rochester. For all I know, Marvellette Laboratories may have just been a division of Bassett Supply Company.
