Sale Description

Whitcomb + Cate are up in Windsor this weekend at a fabulous sale where we take a peek into the past of the Colgate Palmolive Plant that was based in Berkeley California. A family member of this estate used to work for Colgate years ago as a chemist. There are many items including furniture, advertising, soaps, a life time supply of cleaning products and much more from the Colgate Palmolive plant. He was there when they closed the doors for good and brought things home including a large desk, lockers, an antique metal file drawer unit, Most items are marked with a CP Badge, chemist scales, a tanker desk and filing cabinets. There are some very rare metal soap molds and brass Colgate Palmolive Brass Property Tags. His collection of soaps, perfumes, cleansers, tooth past powders and other antique bath products were all over the home. Many items are over a hundred years old.
