I am well aware that the name on this item may be offensive to some and apologise for any offence thus caused, but it is at least 60 years old and dates from when such words were commonplace and that is what the makers chose to name it.
The item consists of the bottle which once contained One and a Half Fluid Ounces of the dye, the original box that it came in and the little applicator for applying it.
As maybe seen from the pictures, both the box and the label on the bottle have been partially stained by spillage or leakage of the bottle’s contents and the bottle itself only contains the dried up remnant of the last dregs of its original contents. This is only offered for sale as a curiosity or collectors item or as a demonstration of how attitudes and words and their use in the English language have changed over the years.
I also have another similar box and bottle from the same era labelled Radium “Dark Brown” Leather Dye. It is in similar condition and I will include it free of charge with the “Nigger Brown” item if wanted. This bottle however does appear to still contain a substantial amount of the original fluid.
Human hand and 12 inch ruler shown in pictures to give an idea of the size of the item.
