DIAPARENE

Tudor, Tasha



#28209

Tudor, Tasha. DIAPARENE ill. Tudor, Tasha. New York, George A. Breon & Co., ca. 1958. 1st 7 7/8" x 4 1/2" x 1 1/4".

The box is lightly folded at the spine; there is a closed break on the back. This box from 1958 was designed by Tasha Tudor with watercolor illustrations on all sides and inside the box. The designs are typical Tudor images with a loving and attentive mother, plants and antiques. There is also humor in two contrasting images of a frazzled mother who has to wash her daily load of diapers, and a mother relaxing under a sun umbrella because she uses a diaper service. This box contains the only instance we've seen where Tasha Tudor drew a contemporary television antenna into a painting. This was a sample box advertising diaper services for new mothers. Given to a new mother in hospital, the box has four small samples: Diaparene Baby Lotion (1 1/4 oz.), Diaparene Chloride Dusting Powder, Diaparene Chloride Ointment in a foil container, Diaparene Peri-Anal ointment in a foil container. The box flaps open to reveal cut-outs containing the samples. This example lacks any reference to a specific diaper service. Found in Cincinnati, OH. The poem from inside: There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, She had so many children, she didn't know what to do. Then she used diaper service, plus Diaparene, No "home-laundry" rash, now all is serene. For, direct to their door, antiseptic and white Come didies to babies' and mommie's delight.
