Place of Origin

Maker Lucky Tiger Remedy Co.

Maker Details The story of Lucky Tiger has been handed down from generation to generation and through the years this tale grew. As it is now told, the Lucky Tiger legend began in the 1920’s, in Kansas City, Missouri, in the basement of Benjamin Clarke, an amateur scientist and one heck of a great barber! Ben created a tonic for the hair and scalp that was different and better than any other product in his day and called it “Lucky Tiger Tonic.” Everyone who visited Ben’s Barbershop got the royal treatment – a shave, a haircut and a generous splash of Lucky Tiger Tonic. As the story goes, Ben began to sell the tonic out of his shop, but it was needed beyond Missouri. In 1935, in Kansas City, Missouri, Lucky Tiger was trademarked and a classic American brand was officially born. As Lucky Tiger’s popularity and product reputation spread, Barbers across America began using and selling the entire range of Products. It is still in extistence today.

Summary Good

Assessor Brooke Uhl

Notes Label has some edge wear. Also, the cork to the opening of the bottle looks like it is broken. I did not try to open it because I did not want it to spill all over.
