Ijust found a 1,000.00 money back guarantee from the Zanol Company.
The paper is signed and notarized by Albert Mills President.
It is dated Oct. 3d. 1921.
We are restoring a fort from the late 1700's and it was in the walls of the newer part of the house.

I just purchased a volvelle (circular chart) that has the title Zanol Meal Planner. You pick a particular main course--beef stew, Swiss steak, fried chicken to name a few on the wheel--and the wheel gives you choices of various full menus you serve with it--what type of potatoes, vegetable and dessert. It's pretty funny to think of creamed tuna fish being served along side cauliflower with Hollandaise sauce and fruit gelatin salad. It has insignias for both Zanol and American Products Co. It has a 1933 copyright notice and a stamp of "Your Zanol Dealer" H.L. Spencer in Bremerton WN.(I assume Wisconsin) Hope this helps anyone who is interested.

I tore down an old house in Milton-Freewater, OR a few years ago and found in the attic an old Zanol Products catalog. It does have a lot of really neat things in it which I wish I could order! I suspect it's from the late 30's. I'd like to sell it. contact me at <gpetersen@my180.net>

I was going through some old memorabilia today and found the Zanol suitcase that my great grandmother carried when she sold Zanol products door to door in Lafayette, Indiana. In the top of the suitcase there is an official 'Guarantee of Satisfaction' paper with a raised seal that would show the customer that they were an honorable company. On the bottom it says American Products Co. by Albert Mills, President. The certificate was executed in Cincinnati, Ohio. I would love to know what happened to the company.

A few years ago my son, while installing air conditioning in a historic Charleston, SC home found: Sales brochure for "Secrets of Making Liquors at Home, Concentrated Extracts." Testimonial page on back cover dates brochure 1909. ZANOL trade mark name on cover. The info matches what matches Greg's post dated Sep 10, 09. All of there "Booze" products (flavors) are listed along with order blank. References to Prohibition within book. Brochure is 3" X 6". Excellent condition.

My last name is Zanol. There are only three people with this last name in the world as far as I know. Was Zanol Products named after the owner? I am curious as it is such an unusual name.

I just bought two ZANOL viles(little test tubes),one you add to moonshine and water to get Apple Brandy,the other is Whiskey.Pretty neat little things,there still sealed with a cork and then sealed with wax.Got them on E-bay.
Says "Universal Import Co. Cincinnati,Ohio" on the bottom label.
If you wouldn't mind can I ask how much did you buy the viles for?

While metal detecting in Farmersburg Indiana on July 4th 2011 at my great granfathers old homestead I dug up an old tooth paste tube with the Zanol label on it. It says: Tooth Paste for beautifying the teeth. It has an Accredited by the American Dental Association logo on the front. It is cream colored with dark blue lettering. My Great Grandparents lived there back in the the 1930's and 40's. The house is gone now and only some of the foundation remains in the woods. I was curious as well about the company and found it very interesting to read everyone's posts on this old turn of the century company.

I have 12 bottles of ZANOL Whip-aid I found in my Granny's basement years ago. Most are almost full, and many have complete front ant back labels.

I have a leather suite case "like item" that maybe the sales rep carried with the word Zanol on the inside. Its what looks like to be advertisement, for when the sales rep opened the case it would look offical with raised seals and certificate type of documents. I can not find anything further about the company.
Good luck if you want to see it I can send photo.
email me, kkittycat3@yahoo.com
Kittycat I would love to see that picture as I think I have one of these cases too!

Does anyone know what happened to the old company Zanol Products Company. They had a Factory in Cincinnati in the early 1900s. They sold home remedies, Cosmetics and Home Specialties through dealers direct to the home. I beleive they were a sister company of American Products Company also of Cincinnati. I can't find any information online about what happend to this company and its products.

I am an avid collector for my now 90 yr old Dad who sold Zanol as a young boy to help assist his immigrant Greek family get settled in America.
He probably has the most complete collection anywhere and I am always looking for additional items for him.
It's his pride and joy.
Please email me to:
thanasi70@hotmail.com
And put Zanol on subject line
Thank you very much.
I look forward to hearing from you.
