Rare 1949 Box of Nox-All Rat Cawn, Rat Poison
This is one of those rare garage finds that clearly needs a new home! "Nox-All Rat Cawn" was manufactured by Noxall Products Ltd., Vancouver, Canada. This petite 2oz cardboard box contains a product named "ANTU - the chemical discovery for killing rats", ANTU was a once-popular choice for rodent extermination. On the box is written, "Their Last Meal" as well as some 'antidote' instructions in case of human ingestion which recommends to "induce vomiting with mustard". Skull & crossbones adorn the top flap. This box o' poison has fun written all over it!
Measures about 3" x 2" x 1½". Printed in red text on the box front is a price of 35¢. The only reference we could find to this product is from a newspaper ad from 1949.
CONDITION: Hands down, this is the best Rat Cawn specimen on the internet. Having said that, it is also the only specimen on the internet. Box shows signs of age but in overall great condition. There is some grease smudges throughout the surfaces but nothing drastic (perhaps a magic eraser will clear up some of it). Contents are unused; box is entirely full. NOT written on the box is, but we'll say it anyways, "Keep out of reach of children".
