Bathroom collectibles brighten up any bathroom— and they’re not too hard to find. Almost any antique mall you go to has at least one good one.

Pro-phy-lac-tic 'U.S. Service' toothbrush, 'Bathtub Head Rest' pillow, Dr. Blumers 'Dentone' Tooth Paste, Ipana toothpaste with Hexa-Fluoride, Dab, 'The Man's Hair Dressing,' Du Sharme Products, c.1971.

DETAILS, upper picture: Hazel Bishop Imported Handmade Eyelashes-100% Human Hair, Ready-to-Wear, c.1965, made in South Korea. Below that the very nicely decorated "Fringed Three Fingertip Towels" set by Sayco, c.1960, USA. In front is a stylish little emory board file that has no maker's mark, c.1960. The bottle above is Murine For Your Eyes, demonstration bottle, c.1940, USA. Sexauer Balloon Tank Ball "improves the flush" c.1950, USA, may well belong with my Garage/Utility Collectibles but it's here in the bathroom. Kleenex travel pack tissues, Kimberly-Clark, USA, 1938. Toni "The Uncurly Permanent" from The Toni Company, division of Gillette, Chicago, USA, c.1960. Barbasol shaving cream, USA, c.1955. "I Can't Believe It's a Girdle" from Playtex, USA, c.1970. Lava Chemical Resolvent Soap, "a high-grade pumice soap," Proctor & Gamble, USA, c.1945. Ivory soap, Procter & Gamble, USA, c.1958.

Right: Van Heusen men's collar shows a patent date of 1922, Phillips-Jones, N.Y., USA. Made of fine starched cotton, this collar attaches to shirt with buttons. People unfamiliar with the history of clothing find this very curious and are astonished to learn that men once wore collars of paper and even plastic (celluloid).
