I like to collect old commercial branded products with gambling-related advertising and names.  The items pictured above are described in the text below.

 Going clockwise from the upper left are:

¶ 3 whiskey bottles: "Two Naturals," "Royal Flush," and "Four Aces" brand.
¶ Tissery Paris Purity Soap.  Inside the box are two soap cubes carved like dice.
¶ Royal Flush Mild cigars -- no mfg. name.
¶ Confucius Say comic poker chip, "another novelty-fun product of Federal Premium Mfg. Co.,.... ......  Chicago ILL 60645."
¶ La Clyde Lucky deodorant cream, adorned with many good luck symbols -- wishbone, horseshoe, 4-leaf clover, 7-11 dice, and a cat face with whiskers (latter is new to me).  Shown in top photo too.
¶ "7-11" condoms -- "a safe bet --  Made from Liquid Latex."
¶ Four-Aces razor blades (British).
¶ Lucky Brown Pressing Oil.  Many good luck symbols.  To be applied with a hot comb.  I think it was aimed at black people for hair straightening(?).  Shown in top photo too.

¶ 4 Dice Beverages bottle.

Old embossed KENO Soda Bottle. Bottle has Keno balls with numbers embossed on them. I have refilled the bottle and capped it with an old vintage Pineapple Soda cap for better display. The bottle is 11-1/2" tall.  Embossed on the bottom: "Royal Products Inc., contents 24  fl. oz.,  New Orleans,  La."
