Description

Magda was later bought and is now Ponds Cold Cream, meaning it was a moisturizing cleanser.
C.J. Countie & Co. was based in a drugstore in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston.
A 1905 advertisement indicates the company had gone global but was still based in Boston.
The advertisement from 1917 indicates that it later turned into "Magda Company" and was moved to Chicago.
