Displaying 1 - 20 of 29
#ZZZ047 - Unused 1915 Panama-California Exposition Postcard
5 1/2" wide vintage postcard. Says it is an official view card on the front. Says "On La Via De Los Estados, Toward Plaza De Panama". Reverse says "Panama-California Exposition San Diego 1915" and has a place for a 1¢ stamp. These are in nice unused condition.
#ZLT016 - Long Distance Tobacco Wrapper
Vintage Long Distance tobacco wrapper. Unused stock from the Scotten, Dillon Company, Detroit, Michigan. These are very early and beatiful stone lithos. Circa 1910. 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 12" long and wrapped around a plug of tobacco. The image pictured showed up on the front and is about 4" wide.
#CS004 - Pinex Laxative Tin
Clearance - Just a few left with some small paint flecks missing. Very old vintage tin in excellent condition. Found with the original invoice in the case that was dated 1914. 3 1/2" wide. Says "A pleasant and effective laxative for grown ups as well as for children. Keep out of reach of children, else they may eat them for candy." Found in the basement of The Pinex Company inFort Wayne, Ind. Vintage new old stock in unused condition.
#ZBOT049 - Brown Mixture Opium Label
2 1/2" wide vintage Brown Mixture label. Says "Each fluid ounce contains .219 grains Opium". It also says it contained 10% alcohol. Says it was for coughs. My guess is that after you took it you didn't care whether you were sick anymore. Unused old stock found at the Baltzly Co. which was a drugstore in Massillon, Ohio. Excellent condition. Great pharmacy bottle label. Circa 1910s.
#ZZB061 - Charlie Chaplain Silent Movie Handbill
OK guys. Something like this is uncommon. Vintage Charlie Chaplain items like this are nearly impossible to find. They came out of an old theatre in Brooklyn, NY. They are 11" tall thin paper handbills that they passed out in front of the theater to attact customers. It advertises D. W. Griffith's The Fall of Babylon which was made in 1919, so that is the time period these are from. It shows the second feature was Charlie Chaplan's comedy "Carman" which was made in 1917. This was the era of the silent movie and so it says "music throughout the entire show". What that means is that some guy played the organ while you watched the silent movies. This is a very good piece and we are proud to be able to offer it. These are the only examples we've ever seen. We bought them right and so are passing them on at an amazing price.
#ZZZ009 - Huge Universal Medicine Company Price List
Long list of 70 different medicinal products. The list describes the item, and the price (e.g. Universal Alps Bitters were listed for $14/dozen with a retail price of $1.75). This appears to be a fairly early piece (circa 1910), and lists many interesting items including Balsams, Elixirs, Remedies, Regulators, Pain expellers, Liniments, etc. They are 17” long and look great framed. Found in the remains of the Universal Medicine Co. in Chicago. Just the top part pictured. These are very large.
#ZLT019 - Oceanic Plug Tobacco Wrapper
Vintage Oceanic Plug tobacco wrapper. Unused stock from the Scotten, Dillon Company, Detroit, Michigan. Circa 1910. Fantastic stone litho image of an ocean liner. This is one of the nicest images you will find in a tobacco wrapper and these are getting harder and harder to find. 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 12" long and wrapped around a plug of tobacco. The image pictured showed up on the front and is about 4" wide.
#ZBOT066- Pair of Early Ketchup Bottle Labels
(you get the pair for 50¢ - that's only a quarter each). Wider one is 3 1/2" across. These are circa 1910 ketchup bottle labels. You can pick up old ketchup bottles at bottle shows and antique malls very cheap. Put one of these labels on them and then you will have a great item. They are fantastic stone litho images. Unused old factory stock in great condition.
#ZLCA044 - Battleship Brand Unsweetened Evaporated Milk Label
Vintage 9 7/8" wide Battleship Brand 1 pound Unsweetened Evaporated Milk label. They picture a Spanish American War Battleship and have a trademark date of 1897 on them. They were found with the above Roseco labels and were the oldest in the bunch. They are from around 1919. This is a very scarce label that retails for $10 and up. We are the only source for these and we're pretty sure you'll like our price better. This is a really unusual war related label. Marked "The Hooven Mercantile Co. New York.
#ZBOT094 - Dr. Gray's Hair Tonic and Dandruff Remedy Bottle Label
Vintage 3 1/8" tall remedy bottle label from around the 1910s. Says "Dr. Gray's Hair Tonic and Dandruff Remedy" "Harmless Hairhealth". Unused old stock from the Western Drug & Herb Co. in Chicago, IL. These look great on an old bottle and remedy bottles of all sorts have always been popular with the bottle and label collectors.
#ZBOT021 - Set of 10 Diamond Ink Labels
You get ten for $5 (that's 50¢ each). 2" to 6 1/2" wide vintage circa 1910s ink and glue labels. Colorful. These look great on old ink and glue bottles. Unused old stock found in the company warehouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Group will vary. We have more of some types.
#ZZZ026 - Early Universal Medicine Ordering Postcard
Vintage 5 1/2" wide postcard listing their products for sale with prices including Pain Expeller, Stomach Tea, Infants Cough Balsam, etc. Unused old stock. Some slight cardboard aging, but very nice. These came out of the remains of the Old Universal Medicine Company in Chicago a number of years ago. Circa 1910.
#ZLSC051 - Monument Square Cigar Label
Vintage 9 1/2" wide inner cigar box label from around the 1910s. Heavily embossed and gilded with a picture of monument square in Baltimore, MD. This is a scarce label and one of historical interest. The Monument was constructed between 1815-25 to commemorate the soldiers who had died in the Battle of North Point during the War of 1812. It prompted President John Quincy Adams to refer to Baltimore in 1827 as “the monumental city.” This label is hard to find in this kind of condition (near mint).
#ZLC137 - Rare and Very Old Sweepstakes Blue Ribbon Apple Crate Label
Vintage 11" wide Sweepstakes Blue Ribbon fruit crate label. This is the Red variety, (Sweepstakes letters in Blue). This is a nice early, uncommon apple label from the Cedaredge Growers Exchange in Colorado. It is a stone litho and dates from approx. the 1910's. Excellent unused condition. These are very difficult to find at a decent price and retail in the $22 - $30 range.

Vintage 2 3/4" tall Virgin Olive Oil bottle label. Says it was particularly valuable for food or medicine and talks about purity which would date it to around 1910. Purity was the catchword of the day in the 1910s after the passing of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906. Unused stock from the Philip Miller Drugstore in Chicago, IL. Great condition. There are lots of old olive oil bottles floating around but you rarely see the labels.
