Vita Radium Suppositories (ca.1930)

Produced by the Home Products Company of Denver, Colorado, these suppositories were guaranteed to contain real radium - and probably did.

 

   From the company's brochure:

Weak Discouraged Men!

Now Bubble Over with Joyous Vitality

Through the Use of

Glands and Radium

". . . properly functioning glands make themselves known in a quick, brisk step, mental alertness and the ability to live and love in the fullest sense of the word . . . A man must be in a bad way indeed to sit back and be satisfied without the pleasures that are his birthright! . . . Try them and see what good results you get!"  

All Home Product customer orders were shipped in a plain wrapper for confidentiality.

Size of Box: 2 3/4"  x  1 3/4"  x  1 1/2"

Donated by Joel Lubenau (the box was empty).
