This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Kirk Guild's "Castile Soap" line of 1939 capitalized on the popularity of The Lone Ranger radio show to produce three of the most outstanding figural soaps ever made. The soap company was not content to produce just the masked man, but products in the shape of his faithful Indian companion, Tonto, and the wonder horse Silver, as well. Presented is a complete set of these impossible-to-find collectibles. Each of the three soaps is contained in a cello window display box with red, white, and blue graphics are specifically related to each of the three characters. All three packages are phenomenally well-preserved, with only the Ranger's cello window showing a marked level of dimpling and some gentle separation from the box's inner wall. Of course, all three of the rare figurals have escaped the touch of dirty young hands to date, remaining in their protective packaging for the last 68 years. The set presents as NM/MT in NM boxes. The condition is truly remarkable, considering that almost all of these soaps were used or have broken over time.
