Place of Origin
Maker Zanol Products
Maker Details The Zanol Products Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, was one of those companies that originally evolved before America’s vast consumer goods distribution network had been established. The Zanol Products Company realised that there was a huge market to be tapped by going door-to-door and selling everyday items direct to the consumer. The wholesale side of the business would be organized under a trademark called Zanol. The origin of this curious name is not known but the Mihalovitch Brothers claimed that the trademark had been in use for a soap product since September 1903 and this suggests that they may have simply purchased the trademark from a third party.
