Comments

"This design was introduced in 1935 developed by J. L. Tobey from Pompeian and J. B. Richardson of W. C. Ritchie & Co. It featured a red sphere like the sun on which were placed columns characteristic of Pompeii.Source: Adkins, H. W. (1935). Pompeian's New Line. Drugs and Cosmetics Industry."
