I have a Scott's Emulsion Good Luck Pocket piece bearing the Fish and Fisherman trademark on one side and the word PROSPERITY across the other plus other wording around the rim. The item appears to be brass. Since the trademark was issued in 1912 the piece could not be older than that. I am very interested when the first of these was produced. I am a native Bluenoser from Nova Scotia and I am very interested in the age of this particular item and the history of its use. Can anybody be of help.
I love to purchase some for my grandchildren and my family. My mom used to give us Scott’s emotions all the time. We grew up on that and never got sick
Hello, I grew up in Bloomfield, NJ and my mother worked for Eno, Scott & Bowne in Bloomfield. In front of their headquarters on Orange Street in Bloomfield was a larger-than-life bronze statue of the "man with the fish on his back". The statue disappeared around the time of the company's takeover by Beecham's. Researching the fate of this statue might be a good avenue of historical research. I can only hope it is in a private collection somewhere rather than having been melted down for the metal content. Thank you,
Good morning Richard, My name is Susan Alys Scott. I am the first born of Donald P. Scott. I am one the heirs of the estate and I am not aware of a large statue. I remember as a child the mini statues. We had a fire in Malibu. On my 18 birthday it burned. My stepmother stole most of our birthrights. I have new paper articles, framed calendars from 1890s if they could be displayed I'm interested in donating to a museum. My Grandmother was a humanitarian and donated to start childrens hospital in New York. Her name was Stella Scott. Thank you for your memory I will in touch with the executor.
