VINTAGE 1900s ITEMS
#ZBOT092 - Early Greaseless Cream Jar Label
Vintage 1 1/4" tall turn of the century Greaseless Cream Jar label. These are heavily embossed and gilded. They are in great shape and look fantastic on a small milk glass jar. Marked Rosemonde Paris, Montreal, Chicago. These came from the old Lucille Young plant in Chicago and were found many many years ago by a fellow who bought the building.
#ZBOT103 - Universal Special Cream Label that went on a Milk Glass Jar
Vintage 4 7/8" wide label. Great image of a period lady with scrolling. These are fantastic. They came from the remains of the Universal Medicine Company many years ago and I had a full display of the jars with the labels on them. They go on a milk glass jar. These were a little curled and so I put them under some book to straighten them out many years ago and just refound them. They still have a slight curl, but will glue on a round milk glass jar just fine. Says "Universal Vanishing Cream is an excellent preparation fror Daily Use" etc. "Universal Laboratories Chicago". They are likely right around 1900.
#ZLCA035 - Defy the World Can Label
14" wide vintage label. Circa 1900s. An outstanding early can tomato label from Sam'l L. Kelty & Son in Quinton, N.J. Super graphics and print, has a heavy varnished look. Great image of Victorian House. Old unused warehouse stock. This is one of the very best can labels out there for framing. The image is very detailed and colorful.
#ZZZ048 - Early Farmers Mechanics Bank Check
7" wide vintage check dated 1900 - 1909 from "The Farmers Mechanics National Bank of Georgetown". Also marked "Washington D. C." These are used checks that were kept in excellent condition.
#ZBOT105 - Early Massage Cream Jar Label
Vintage 1 1/4" tall turn of the century Massage Cream Jar label. These are heavily embossed and gilded. They are in great shape and look fantastic on a small milk glass jar. Marked Rosemonde Paris, Montreal, Chicago. These came from the old Lucille Young plant in Chicago and were found many many years ago by a fellow who bought the building.
#ZZZ014 - Turn of the Century Universal Drug Letterhead
Vintage turn of the century letterhead marked "Universal Drug & Chemical Co." "Wholesale Druggists, Druggists Sundries, Glassware, Stationery, etc." "1857 Armitage Avenue Chicago" and an early 4 digit phone number. These came from the abandoned warehouse a number of years ago and are the only example we have ever seen. There aren't many and all show minor aging.
#ZLCA022 - Dana's Jardiniere Tomatoes Can Label
11" wide vintage label. Very old label from the early 1900s. Doesn't have a weight marked on it which was required by the 1910s. Really nice image. These labels are unused stock that were found at the Dana Canned Goods Co. warehouse in Belpre, Ohio many years ago. These labels are fascinating. What in the world did "Dana's Jardiniere" have to do with tomatoes? Excellent condition.
#ZLSC060 - Early Crane's Imported Cigar Label
Vintage 9" wide Crane's Imported cigar box label. This is not the common one, but an earlier version. Gilded with a nice image of a Crane on a sign. Circa 1900s. Excellent image and condition.
#ZLSC027 - Clint Ford Inner Cigar Box Label
Vintage 9" wide inner cigar box label. Embossed and gilded. Clint Ford was a very popular actor and appeared frequently at the Star Theatre in New York in the late 1800's. Unused stock in nice condition. Circa 1900 or earlier. They retail for $5 and up. We got a great deal on these, and so we are offering you a great price too.
#ZBOT044 - Early Cinderella Face Beautifier Label
4 1/2" wide vintage early 1900's Cinderella Face Beautifier label. Unused old factory stock from the Dr. Blumer's plant in Chicago. Excellent condition. Two things of note. These labels do not have a size or weight listed which was required by law after around 1910, meaning they were made before that time. Also, the Cinderella story has a really interesting history. It dates all the way back to China in the 9th century. It became popular all over the world in the late 1850s when it was retold by the Grimm brothers. It made another comeback on stage in the late 1800s and was repopularized again by Disney around 1950.
#ZLT020 - Popular Cut Plug Tobacco Wrapper
Vintage Popular Plug tobacco wrapper. Unused stock from the Scotten, Dillon Company, Detroit, Michigan. Circa 1900. Basic tobacco plug label but the rarest and oldest of the Scotten Dillon labels. These are a little brittle, so be careful when handling. A large lot of old boxes and paper were found at the Scotten Dillon warehouse many years ago. We just picked up several different types from the guy who rescued them, and he let loose of some of the oldest ones that were found. They are very nice and in excellent condition. The entire label is 15 1/2" long and wrapped around a plug of tobacco. The image pictured showed up on the front and is about 4" wide.
#ZLSC010 - Jewelo Cigar Box Label
Vintage 10" wide embossed and gilded inner cigar box label from around the 1900s. Detailed image of a fellow who looks like one of the three musketeers courting a lass working in the fields. Nice unused condition.
