VINTAGE 1950s ITEMS
Displaying 1 - 20 of 258
#CIR027 - Carson & Barnes Circus Lithograph Pass Ticket
Vintage 4 1/24" wide complimentary ticket to the Carson & Barnes Wild Animal Circus from the late 1950s. These are paper tickets that were given away free if you signed a contract to let them put a sign in your yard or business window. Nice elephant and lion image.
These came from a fellow whose job it was to run ahead of the circus to prime the town they were going to. He would put up signs in yards in exchange for tickets. Give tickets to the local stores to sell, and take proofs to the local newspapers. He did this from about 1958 till 1962 for several circuses. This paper and a lot of other stuff we bought came from leftovers in his garage.
#MS217 Made in Japan Blown Glass Animal
You get one for $1.50. Vintage well made blown glass animal. We found these in a large rotting master carton marked "Made in Japan" at a long closed toy store in Columbus, Ohio. They had been stored in the basement from a previous business. They are all wrapped in tissue and are in amazing condition. I took a picture of a couple of them for perspective. Sizes and animal types vary widely. They are anywhere from an inch to over 2 inches in length. We are going to leave them all in the tissue. I just took a few out randomly for a picture. So, it's potluck (no special requests). You may get a fish or a dog and the sizes will vary. Since they are handmade and handblown, no two are alike. These are circa 1950.
#TY525 - String Wound Heavy Wooden Top with Metal Tip
Vintage 2 1/4" tall hard well made heavy wooden top. These must have been hand spun on a machine because the diameters vary a lot. The metal tips are heavy duty and they are wound with thick string. These were meant to last. Unsold old store stock in excellent condition. Circa 1950. (limit one on foreign orders as these are very heavy).
#ZZCE041 - Stock Certificate from the American Bank Note Company

They are in excellent unused condition. My friends left the cases that didn't have the Carnation stamp at the factory where they were later bought by an unscrupulous dealer in the midwest who stamped "Coca Cola" on them.
