Ten Wax pills in lidded cardboard box with three prescriptions Ten beeswax pills are shaped in a ball with a knob on one hand and have two red stamps near the bottom. The cardboard box is rectangular shaped and is covered with a red colored paper that has blue and green flower shapes stamped on. On the top and on one end there are two red stickers with black Chinese characters. On the other end is white sticker stamped in red "China". On the front edge is red paper tab which holds a white rectangular piece of bone which slips another red loop on the front and acts as a closure. The pills sit on a raised cardboard stand, perforated, on the inside. There are three sets of white papers with black Chinese characters and red stamps inside the box. These explain the use of the patent medicine which is for children's illnesses.
