Iron Jelloid prophylactics

Iron Jelloid prophylactics

I’m becoming something of an authority on strange vintage artefacts these days (see here, here and here for other examples). Take this Brititsh advert, purportedly from 1897, which i recently acquired for resale for ‘Iron Jelloids’ which are ‘dainty, palatable, non-constipating and non-injurious to the teeth’. They even contained a little banjo salve and, as the advert claims, were widely acknowledged by discerning men as the best in the business.  I’m sure they made a fantastic addition to the Prophylactic family of goods – which in 1897 was becoming something of a runaway success with their iconic cock logo being used even in this very early advert. I can only guess why they aren’t still available today…
