#CH326-24  - Johnny Weissmuller as Jungle Jim in The Lost Tribe Movie Poster/Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1949 Johnny Weissmuller movie "The Lost Tribe" where Johnny starred as Jungle Jim. Please click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
$5.00



#ZLC352 - On Rush Pinup Melons Crate Label
Vintage 10 3/4" wide circa 1940s On Rush Melons crate label. Vargas style pinup image. These are from the day when the idea of advertising was to catch your attention. The images often had no relation to the product. This was pretty risque stuff back then. Unused stock that was found at the F. H. Hogue Co. in Yuma, AZ. They have very light rippling if you look closely.
$2.00



#BEADS0688 - Group of 140 Cherry Brand 11-12MM Oval Light Amethyst Transparent Glass Beads
You get 140 Beads for $6 (about 4¢ each). Vintage Cherry Brand Japanese transparent light amethyst oval beads. They are 11 -12mm long and a pretty rare color. These were made by hand using old techniques and are a little crude. They are circa 1940s Cherry Brand (company only existed from 1946 - 1951). As you many know, Cherry Brand was considered the highest quality Japanese bead maker. This is a very fresh find we made from a dealer in New York who originally purchased them in the 1940s. These are very hard to find, very nice, and have never seen the light of day. PLease note that the white lines on the beads are not stripes. They are camera reflections. Click on the image to see a larger picture with more detail.

#SOZ106 - 7Up You Like It.....  It Likes You Menu Sheet
Vintage 9" tall 7up menu sheet. Pictures the bottle and logo "You Like It....  It Likes You". This slogan was used  from 1936 into the early 50s, so these are hard to date exactly. Gauging by the paper they were wrapped in, I'd say 1940s is probably right. These menu sheets were given away by local plants for restaurants to use, and of course had 7Up advertising on them. These are unused old plant stock in excellent condition.

#CH096  - 1940s Western Cowboy Movie Posters Broadsides - As low as $1.25 each
These are paper Western movie posters/broadsides from the 1940s. If you order 30 or less, all will be different. If you order 80 of them, there will be at least 70 different. Size varies, up to 12" or more tall. Some are different widths. All of them feature famous cowboy movie stars of the era, and all have a similar look to the ones pictured. Old unused movie theatre stock. PLEASE NOTE - Many have edge roughness or small edge tears. They can all be trimmed to look great. All of these were found by Bob Secrist at a northern Ohio theatre many years ago. They served the theatre as handouts and broadsides/posters that would announce the latest cowboy movie at the theatre. They would tack them on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived except this large stash that Bob uncovered in the theatre storage area. He was one of the most respected and well known collectors in the country. We got these directly from his estate. They are much scarcer than lobby posters. We have them priced so low because there are a lot of them.  Over time, they will run low, and our prices will increase on them. These are great Americana pieces at silly low prices. Get them at these prices while you can.

##MUSICBG0030 - 1940s Opera News Magazine

Vintage 8 3/4 - 10" tall (depending on which issue) 1940s Opera News magazine. They show some typical aging but are in nice shape. These are uncommon and often go for $5 each and up on Ebay. Some go for a lot more depending on who is on the cover. We have several different ones and don't know one from another. No special requests please. You may get the real high dollar one. Hard to tell. Opera News was founded in 1936 by the Metropolitan Opera Guild with Mrs. John DeWitt (Mary Ellis Peltz) serving as the publication's first editor. It was initially intended to be a "useful, instructive, and factual weekly newspaper of Opera in New York". Its first issue was published on 7 December 1936 and consisted of only one folded broadsheet.
