A pressed brass pill container which dispensed Cachoux designed to sweeten the breath of what must have often been foul smelling Victorian dental caries ridden mouths.
On one side it reads “H.R.H. Prince Albert’s Cachou Aromatise Prepared by Thomas Jackson”. On the other “Sweeten the breath freshen the mouth. Albert Gate 1869” and within a crown topped crest “Prince Albert’s Cachoux. Thomas Jackson inventor and original proprietor”. In superb condition for it 140 years with no dings or scratches and the original sliding catch which would dispense the Cachoux.
