Advertisement for Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Hair Renewer depicting a lady with long curly hair and wearing a long pink dress. She is sitting on the grass surrounded by eight little naked angels. Each one is doing a different activity including fanning the lady, holding a bottle of Hall's Hair Renewer, holding a mirror, playing a horn, and fixing the lady's hair. There are two rabbits in the right corner of the picture and two birds flying a wagon full of hair renewer. The caption is: "Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Hair Renewer Prevents gray hairs and baldness." In tiny print at the bottom right corner is: Mayer, Merkel & Ottmann, Lith., N.Y. The reverse of the card states to use Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Hair Renewer and "your gray hair will soon become the color it was when you were younger, and the weak hair will be strengthened, and new hair will start and grow where now it is thin". It stops falling hair, dandruff, itching, and leaves the hair soft. Buckingham's Dye for the Whiskers is a "preparation to change the color of the Beard and Mustache to a natural brown or black".
