Ivory Polish For The Teeth 1887 medicine / dental trade card
WH Haven Drugs, Findlay Ohio
[Sold on ebay for $4.34]

Ivory Tooth Polish was a popular product of the time, sold by many druggists.

From the Hancock County, Ohio Genealogy and History site:

W. H. HAVEN, druggist, Findlay, was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, November 12, 1841; In 1850 became apprenticed to merchandising here in the store of Hugh Newell. He afterward took up the drug trade, and in 1859 embarked in it on his own account at Ottawa, Ohio. In 1861 he sold his interest there, enlisting his services in the army, and was with the Ninety-ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in the commissary department, till 1864, when he joined the Mississippi and West Gulf Squadron, with which he remained till the close of the war, retiring at that time from the charge of the United States steamer ''Peri.'' After the war he traveled in the interest of the drug trade and read medicine. He subsequently practiced his profession, but, in 1868, engaged in manufacturing, which he followed for several years. In 1876 he purchased his present business which he has raised to a leading prominence here. He is a member of the Ohio State Pharmaceutical Association, and was one of the original committee who drafted the bill for the new pharmaceutical law of Ohio. He is also a member of the Traders' and Travelers' Association of New York City. He has worked his way up in business, and, through his own indefatigable exertions has accumulated a nice competency. (Source: History of Hancock Co, Chicago: Warner Beers & Co., 1886)
