Speaking of the Hall’s Red Devil Skull Poison Indicator Corkscrews

As mentioned previously, in doing research into poison indicators with corkscrews, I have been engaged in conversations with some poison bottle collectors.  One of which, happened to have an original box which once contained the Hall Red Devil Skulls.

Here are some images of the information provided on the box…

Suggestions to Druggist on How to Sell RED – DEVIL –SKULLS

  1. Recommend them for use on poison bottles already in the home.
  2. When filling or refilling poisonous prescriptions, or other medicines put Red – Devil – Skulls on the bottles.

If you have an empty box that previously contained Hall’s Red Devil Skull poison indicator corkscrews, or preferably still contains Hall’s Red Devil Skull poison indicator corkscrews, I would love to add it (them) to the collection.  Drop me a line.
