Golden Peacock Bleach Creme

<< >>
In 1913, the Mitchum Warren family established the Paris Toilet Company in Paris, Tenn., to market a bleaching cream for freckles. The company name was changed in 1927 to the Golden Peacock Company and later became the Mitchum Company. It was said that one of the founding family’s sons, Mitchum Warren, grew tired of being asked if his family made toilets.

Crème used by my mother many years ago and was very effective.
I live in a historic home and found the bottom portion on this item in my attic. When was the actual date that it went on the market ? Thank you, Maria
