Antique Fairbanks Gold Dust Washing Powder Box Black Americana. Fairbank's Gold Dust washing products was a line of all-purpose cleaning products researched and developed in the late 1880s by the Fairbank's Soap Manufacturing Company. First introduced to the American consumer in 1889, Gold Dust Washing Powder quickly became a success due in large part to its low selling price. The most easily recognized members of the soap line was Gold Dust Washing Powder and Gold Dust Scouring Soap. They were marketed in boxes and containers prominently featuring the brand's well known Gold Dust Twins, Goldie and Dustie of whom were black babies. The back of the box depicted these twins tackling several household chores and a list of jobs made easier by using Gold Dust Washing Powder. "Let the Twins Do Your Work" was the product's slogan.
It has lots of pictures of the twins, one side says cleans quickly and has the twins washing dishes, scrubbing a skillet with removes grease quickly, brightening woodwork, and cleans paint brushes. The other side says it softens hard water, brightening linoleum, removes bath tub ring, washes dirty work clothes and makes glassware sparkle. The back has a chart of how to use the Gold Dust.
This box dates to the 1930's era, as it has the Lever Brothers logo on the back, Lever Brothers purchased the Fairbanks company in 1930. The box is 6 1/2" by 4 3/8", it is in very good condition, still sealed with the contents inside, outer edges show some wear along the edges, slightly out of shape on the left side, and some light stains on the bottom front edge. A very nice piece given it is almost 90 years old!
