#ZLS048 - Sanitary Brand Root Beer Label
Sanitary Brand Root Beer Label. Beautifully detailed fairy tale image with deep colors & gilding. Its a very Collectible Root Beer Label to boot. Circa 1930's. Unused stock from the Sanitary Bottling Works building in Indiana Harbor, Indiana. 4-1/2" wide.
#CH083 - Group of 4 Pieces of Poll Parrot Shoe Money
You get 4 for $3 (that's 75¢ each). These Vintage 6" wide pieces of Poll Parrot Shoe Money say "Trade at the store that gives you Poll Parrot Shoe Money with your purchases". Says you could exchange it for valuable prizes. From an shoe store. Circa 1930s or perhaps a little earlier. The one pictured was worth 10 cents, but you will get several different denominations. There are several are different colors.
#CH239 - 1930s Anita Louise Publicity Photo
Vintage 10" tall Anita Louise publicity photo from the 1930s. Has a faux signature that says "Cordially, Anita Louise" and a mark that says "A Warner - First National Star". These are in nice shape and were printed on high quality paper. This is an uncommon one that retails for over 10 bucks. Anita Louise was a top name in the movies in the 1930s and was in many movies of that era when she was only in her teens and twenties. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
#SIGN002 - Sunkist Shamrock Valencias Sign
Vintage 9 1/2" tall circa 1930s cardboard store signs. These were distributed to groceries to use as price signs for Valencia oranges. Unused old stock from Northern Orange County. Nice image. Got these from a long time dealer who is retiring. He had found them many many years ago.
#SP039 - Schlitz Menu Sheet with Phil Lyford Artwork
Vintage 10" tall unused paper menu sheet with a large colorful picture of a sophisticated couple dining and drinking Schlitz beer. It has the slogan "It's smart to drink Schlitz" and "The beer that made Milwaukee famous". Also says "In brown bottles". These are easy to date as those logos were only used in combination for a couple of years around 1934. They have a Phil Lyford signature. Phil Lyford was a very famous artist who did many paintings and illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post and Country Gentleman. He passed away around 1950. His paintings go for around 2 grand. These are quite a find.
#TY079 - Weston's Crack-ettes Advertising Clicker
Vintage nearly 2" long advertising clicker. These are very scarce and have the Kirchhof makers mark. Unused old stock from around the 1930s. Paint shows some aging as you can see in the picture. I've seen a couple of these go for pretty good prices on Ebay.
#ZLCA043 - Roseco Evaporated Milk Label
Vintage 9 3/4" wide Roseco Brand 14 1/2 ounce Evaporated Milk label. This is perhaps the most beautiful dairy label you will ever see. Stone litho image. Very deep and vibrant colors. Cow with milking stool and bucket pictured. Also a gigantic rose image. These labels have a printer's code on them that dates them to 1933. They are an amazing find. They came from a brewery in Minnesota! During prohibition, the brewery turned to canning milk since they couldn't make beer any more. It was a large operation and they canned milk for companies all over the country. The companies would send them the labels and they would can the milk and send it back with the companies label on it. Incredibly, as soon as prohibition was over, they returned immediately to brewing beer and a ton of canning labels were left sitting in the basement all those years. We were able to procure the entire lot of the very best labels, and they are priced very reasonably. You'll be hard pressed to find any nicer dairy related labels anywhere at any price.
#ZLCA046 - Chippewa Brand Evaporated Milk Label
Vintage 9 7/8" wide Chippewa Brand 14 1/2 ounce Evaporated Milk label. One of the nicest Indian labels you'll ever see. Brightly colored stone litho image of a chief and some moccasins. These were found with the Roseco labels above and have a printer's mark that dates them to 1931. They are marked "Sault Wholesale Grocers Sault St. Marie, Mich". These are truly extraordinary. We've never run into can labels of this kind of quality before. We bought out all of the very best labels that were found and they are real doozies!
#ZZA148 - Complete Set of 16 Different Exhibit Supply Radio Cards For Single Women
Vintage complete set of 16 Exhibit Supply Radio Cards for Single Women. These are 1 1/2" tall and picture a guy on the front with a radio message for the woman receiving the card of the reverse. The ones pictured are typical. For example, "My own true love life is not worth living without you. Come to my arms my darling, my heart hungers for you". The machines that dispensed these for a penny were only made from 1923 - 1931. Exhibit Supply often continued to make cards for their machines that they would sell to the penny arcades that used them for awhile after they no longer made the machines. Gauging by the original brick these were wrapped in, I'd say these are likely an old version from the 1930/40s. The gentleman pictured are all very period 1920s guys. These are very rare and unusual. Complete sets are nearly impossible to find. These were in original bricks marked Exhibit Supply that were found in storage at a penny arcade up in the northeast. Very few collectors will have a complete set of these and we've got them priced right.
#ZLSG030 - Large Size Stafford's Blacks Grape Crate Label with Black Boy
Vintage crate label. Same as #LSG015, but this one is bigger. Same width, but about an inch taller. Even less of these were found. Unusual image. Pictures a black boy with a colander on his head with a feather coming out of it. Circa 1930s. Unused old factory stock from Tipton, CA. Excellent condition.
#ZLB008 - Bluebird Broom Label
6" tall vintage unused stock broom label picturing a bluebird on a branch. Circa 1930s. Found in a defunct broom factory warehouse in Illinois. These were labels that were actually used on broom handles. A lot of broom companies went out of business in the 1940s and 1950s when vacuum cleaners took their place in the American household.
#ZLC196 - Waldorf Apple Crate Label
Vintage 10 1/4" wide Waldorf Apples crate label. Fantastic super colorful image of a bellboy carrying a giant apple on a plate. From S. Albertson Co. in Yakima, WA. Nice unused condition. Circa 1930s. This is one of my personal favorites. They look great framed.

Very scarce and nice item.
#SIGN054 - Blue-Tip Cigar Fan Hanger Sign
Vintage 6 1/4" wide cardboard sign advertising Blue-Tip Cigars. This was a fan hanger sign. Fan Hangers were tied to the string of store ceiling fans (before air conditioning) and slowly turned from the breeze of the fan, and so fan hanger signs are always two sided. The signs are identical on both sides. They were just found recently in the old factory and are the only examples I know of. All have some small typical paint flaking as you can see in the picture if you look close, but you won't find any better anywhere. Circa 1930s.

Has referee's signals across the bottom. Coke plants used to give these out to schools for free to print their game programs on. Nice piece of old Coke advertising.
#ZLW063 - Bottled Romance Label - Artwork was done by R. Atkinson Fox
5" wide Bottled Romance label. The label pictured is one of their earliest known surviving bottle labels from Engels & Krudwig who produced high quality American wine from the Lake Erie region vineyards. A friend of ours was able to get into the winery and find these. There was a printing tag in with them that shows they were made in 1934 right after the end of prohibition. They are not signed, but extensive research has been done on these labels and the artwork was done by R. Atkinson Fox. Robert Atkinson Fox was a popular and prolific commercial artist from the early 1900s until his death in 1935. He was commissioned by major calendar companies and art print publishers to illustrate calendars, posters, postcards, picture puzzles, and various advertising materials all over the country. His work goes for big dollars. Check it out on Ebay. These labels are a gift at this price. They should retail for at least $5 - $10 each.

Vintage postcard from the America's Exposition which was held in San Diego's Balboa Park in 1935-36. This one was from the "Palace of Photography".
