Displaying 1 - 30 of 158
#DA046 - Enterprise Creamery Butter Box with Cows and Land O' Lakes Mark
Vintage 4 3/4" wide one pound waxed butter box. Super colorful images of cows and a farm. They are marked Land O' Lakes Creameries on one of the flaps and also say "Churned by Enterprise Co-op Cry. Ass'n. London, MN". These are really nice and very uncommon. These kind of dairy boxes don't come around often. Shipped folded flat.
#HH122 - String Handle Christmas Toy/Candy Box
Vintage 4 1/4" wide circa 1940s string handled cardboard box. These were filled with candy and penny toys and put under the Christmas tree. They say "Merry Christmas" and "Printed in USA" and are circa the 1940s. Super colorful old Santa image on both sides. We've had several types of these before and this has by far the nicest Santa image. These are unsold old store stock in excellent unused condition. They will be shipped folded flat.
#ZLC224 - Diamond S Brand Bartlett Pear Crate Label
Vintage 11" wide circa 1940s Diamond S brand Bartlett Pear label. Very nice image of horses. These came from the E. M. Simpson grower in Hood, California. Not real common. Great unused condition.
#ZLSG040 - Early Version of the Locomotive Engineer Label
Vintage 12 1/2" wide Locomotive Engineer grape crate label. There are later versions of this label with zip codes on them. This is not that. There is no zip code and the colors are deep are beautiful with inks they used in the 1940s. Fantastic image of a 1930s era train. These came fom the Thomas Mouradick Grower and Shipper in Fresno, CA.
#CS222 - Adams Clove Chewing Gum Free Sample
Vintage circa 1940s 3" wide unused stick of Adams Clove Chewing Gum. You pretty much never see these in perfect condition with the gum in them like this. These are the old ones with paper wrappers (as opposed to foil). They are marked "Free Sample" and "American Chicle Company NY". They are old stock that was never used, and are in excellent condition.
#CH240 - Rare Rita Hayworth Aluminum Poker Chip
Vintage 1 3/8" diameter aluminum poker chip with Rita Hayworth on it. The back has a horseshoe and good luck mark and the rim has typical poker chip embossing, but they are slightly smaller than the average poker chip and made out of aluminum. These are very rare. You won't find one on Ebay. They are old store stock. Gaging by the type of box they were in and the young looking Rita, I'd say they are circa 1940. These would be a major addition to any poker chip collection, and I've never seen one anywhere before. Condition is unused, but they do have minor brushed aluminum marks. Rare poker chips go for big bucks. We may this one dramatically underpriced.
#ZLC227 - Dandyboy California Tomatoes Crate Label
Vintage 13" wide circa 1940s Dandyboy California Tomatoes crate label. These have a patent date on them of 1924, and the imaga is from that time period, but these were more likely printed in the 1940s. 1940s looking kid with a hat typical of the day pictured. These are nice. These came from the Wm. H. Gumpertz Co. in Oxnard, CA. Great unused condition.
#DA002 - Cowlitz Butter Box
Nice old vintage 1940s Butter box picturing cows. 6 1/2" wide one pound butter box. Excellent unused condition. Found at a farm in Longview, Washington. Old Phone number on the side with Letters. Writing and pictures on all sides.
#CC179 - Coca Cola Bingo Marker Card
Vintage 1940s Coca Cola Bingo marker cards. 5 3/4" square. Each card has 25 markers on it that were to be punched out and used for Bingo markers. Logo on each marker is "Drink Coca Cola in Bottles". Cards are marked "The Pause that Refreshes" on top. Cardboard. Unused antique stock from an old Coke plant. Perfect condition.
#CC203 - 1942 Coca Cola Blotter with Boy Scouts
Vintage 7 3/4" wide cardboard advertising ink blotter picturing Boy Scouts drinking Coke. Says "Wholesome Refreshment" "Drink Coca-Cola Ice Cold". Marked 1942. We just bought part of a huge collection of Coke items. These were part of the lot. The fellow that had this stuff is a friend who searched old bottling plants and hauled most of this stuff out many years ago.
#CH079 - Ken Maynard Trick Rope in Original Cellophane Package
Vintage 1940's Ken Maynard toy TRICK ROPE in original package. 11" wide package says "toy trick rope - with the patented embedded swivel". These are in their original cellophane packaging (which is quite brittle and has tears), but the card and rope are in perfect condition. Even has a fake autograph on it. The patent number on the card is from the mid 1930s, however, guaging by how old he looks in the picture, I'd guess they are from around 1940. With his white cowboy hat, fancy shirt, and pair of six-shooters, Maynard appeared in more than 90 films from the 1920s to the mid-1940s before his career was ended by alcoholism. This was a warehouse find, but it wasn't huge and these won't be around forever. Trick ropes were sold by a lot of cowboy movie stars during this time period and usually go for $100 or more. This is a great item.
#CC192 - 1940s Coca Cola Ad Card with Lady with Apron Coke and Groceries
Vintage 6 5/8" tall Coke ad with carton pictured and coupon with lady attached to each other by a peforation. The card and coupon are attached to each other by a perforation as shown in the picture. They come apart cleanly, but some folks like to keep them together and frame them that way. They are in excellent condition and a vintage Coke item from the 1940s. We just bought part of a huge collection of Coke items. These were part of the lot. The fellow that had this stuff is a friend who searched old bottling plants and hauled most of this stuff out many years ago.
#CH077 - 1940 Tournament of Roses Souvenir Book
Vintage 11 3/4" tall. 36 pages of floats from the 1940 Tournament of Roses Parade. This issue is really neat. It has a full page showing Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy who were the Grand Marshalls that year. These pages are very frameable and these books often go for $25 - $40 in used condition. These are in mint shape although you may find a page or two that sticks together a little. They were found in a shed in the Pasadena, California area many years ago.

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.

Says to ask your Borden's Ice Cream man about saving the bags to get "Hundreds of Swell prizes". Also, says "Or send a postcard to Popsicle Pete". These are old factory stock in great condition.
#ZLW102 - Troika Vodka Label
Vintage 4 3/4" tall label that says "Troika Vodka" "Made from 100% Grain Neutral Spirits". These are gilded and have a wonderful image of a guy on a snow sled being pulled by horses.

#CA065 - Old Unused Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Ticket
Vintage 4" tall unused ticket. They have a revision mark on them of 744 meaning they were likely made in the 1940s or 50s.

#ZLC051 - Beau Geste Vegetable Crate Label
Vintage beautiful 9" tall unused vegetable crate label from the Los Angeles, CA area.

Many of the labels reflect events, people and areas that were popular during this time. This label was inspired by the movie of the same name starring Gary Cooper. It was Paramounts first Technicolor film. Circa 1940s.

11" wide vintage Co-Ed Brand Orange and Lemon crate label from the College Heights Orange and Lemon Ass'n. in Claremont, CA. Pictures a lovely girl graduating from college. When these were made back in the 1940s, the whole idea of "Co-Ed" with boys and girls together was considered scandalous. These were made to be attention getters. Back then, they didn't care if the subject matter was related to the product. It was just about making you look. This is a fantastic example. Excellent unused condition.
