Although Thomas Holloway of England had limited medical training he was a genius at marketing his remedies through global newspaper advertising as early as 1837. The popular ointment bearing his name was touted as the “Cure of Inveterate Ulcers, Bad Legs, Sore Breasts, Sore Heads, Gout and Rheumatism” as shown printed on the small ceramic pot.
By the 1850s the success of the product as well as others by Holloway made him a wealthy man. The entrepreneur invested some of his fortune in building a sanatorium for the mentally ill as well as the Royal Holloway College for Women that stands today as part of the University of London.
Whereas every effort has been made to choose the best examples of shipwreck artifacts for our collectors, some blemishes and imperfections will be evident due to the harsh conditions the artifacts have been subjected to during their years in the deep ocean making each piece of history absolutely unique.
