VINTAGE 1950s ITEMS
Displaying 81 - 100 of 147
#DC087 - Lassig Dairy Sun Filled Orange Juice Milk Bottle Cap
Vintage 1 5/8" diameter milk bottle cap. These are in nice unused condition and have a brightly colored sun design on them. They are old unused stock from around the 1950s that were found at the Lassig Dairy in Rhinelander, WI.
#MS126 - Co-Ed Prophylactic Sleeve
Vintage 2 3/4" wide folded flat sleeve that was made to hold a dozen prophylactics. Advertising prophylactics to college students like this was pretty brazen back around 1950 when these were made. They picture college building and are in excellent condition. They were found at the Chandler Distributors in St. Louis many years ago.
#SIGN074 - Huge Hobble Wobble Store Banner
Vintage 21 3/4" wide paper banner that was used in store to advertise the Hobble Wobble toy back in the 1950s. It was too big to fit on the scanner, so I just scanned part of it. Great graphic of a kid with a crewcut wobbling on the toy. This was the era of Hula Hoops. The Hobble Wobble was a plastic contraption that you balanced and wobbled around on. It never caught on like the hula hoop, but did have some national distribution. These are old stock signs that were still in the factory all of these years later and are in great condition. These have got that 50s look.
#ZLW092 - Southern Dew Bourbon Whiskey Label with Confederate Flag - Large Version
4 3/4" tall vintage Southern Dew Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey label. Embossed lettering with colorful picture of the confederate flag. Unused old stock from the Old Boone Distillery in Meadowlawn, KY. We had a bunch of these many years ago. They sold out quickly and we haven't had any since. Ran into a friend of mine at a show who had set a few back back, so here they are. Circa 1950.
#ZZA134 - Groups of 20 Napkin Dispenser Fortune/Drink Cards with Fortune or Drinks
You get 20 for $1.00 (that's only 5¢ each). Vintage 2 1/4" wide cards with pull strips. The front either tells you your fortune or a tidbit of wisdom about you or a drink recipe. You pulled back the tab and depending on how many stars were under there you won something. These are unused stock that were made for napkin machines that sat on a table usually in a bar. You put a penny or nickel in and got your fortune or a drink recipe and a chance to win a discount or a drink depending on what the house paid. These are from around the 1950s and are in excellent unused condition. The idea for the bar was that if someone got a card with a drink recipe on it, they might order the drink and the bar would make more money. If they got three stars, maybe they won a 5¢ discount on a drink, so they might order and the bar would again make more money. Plus the bar got a penny or nickel when someone put their money in the machine. Pretty clever marketing devices. You will get bunch of different ones in the lot of 20.
#TY281 - Filipino Champion Yo-Yo Display Box
Vintage 7 1/2" wide Yo-Yo Display box. They say "Tommy & Joe Two Famous Filipino Yo-Yo Champions" "present Royal Champion Tops". The box was made to hold 6 Yo-Yos. I got these from the defunct Gulak warehouse in Brooklyn, NY many years ago. The owner told me how they would post notices around town that Tommy and Joe were coming, and that they sold the Yo-Yos by the boxloads when they did a show with them at the store. That was back around 1950. He still had a small pile of the display boxes. These are the very last of them.
#CS088 - Hillbilly Tater Bread Bags
Vintage 19" wide unused plastic bread bag. Super colorful bags picturing granny cuttin' taters. These are unused stock from the Hansen Baking Co. in the Seattle, Washington area. Circa 1950s. Great graphics.
#PC062 - Jolly TIme Popcorn Bag
Vintage 1950s Jolly Time popcorn bag. We turned up a master case. The case was stamped 5¢ bags. Now how long has it been since a bag of popcorn cost a nickel? They are 7 1/2" tall and in excellent condition. Found at a wholesale warehouse in Wisconsin.
ZZCA032 - Frisco Railway Letterhead
Vintage 7" tall notepad sheets with brightly colored Frisco Railway letterhead. The Frisco is a defunct U.S. railroad that operated in the Midwest and South Central U.S. from 1876 to 1980. These are an interesting story. This summer we took a vacation in Branson, MO and heard stories of a fellow who had gotten lots of stuff out of the old Frisco Railway depot when in closed around 1980. We never did find the fellow, but one of the local antique dealers had this stack of letterhead that he got from the fellow we never found. It was in an old string tied bundle that looked pretty beat up, but much to our amazement the sheets were like new when we got down below the first three or four. I'm not sure of the exact date as from what I've been able to look up there were many types of Frisco trains, but I'm guessing from the style of the one in the picture that they are probably from the 1950s.
#DC088 - Lassig Dairy Green Spot Orange Drink Milk Bottle Cap
Vintage 1 5/8" diameter milk bottle cap. These are in nice unused condition and have a brightly colored design with the Green Spot in the center. They are old unused stock from around the 1950s that were found at the Lassig Dairy in Rhinelander, WI.
#CA010 - Group of 4 Union Pacific Overland Route Toothpicks in Wrappers
You get 4 for $1 (that's 25¢ each). 3" wide toothpick packages says Union Pacific The Overland Route and has the old Union Pacific logo on it. Each wrapper contains two toothpicks. These came from a fellow who used to buy old stock out of the Union Pacific commissary in the 1970s, and so they are in excellent unused condition. We're estimating they are from the 1950s, but by the looks of the box, they could be even older. These are the only examples we've ever seen of these and the Overland Route was discontinued in 1971, so they should be a pretty good item for resale.
#CA043 - Early Gummed Braniff Airline Label
Vintage 2" wide gummed Braniff International Airways Air Mail Label. Unused excellent condition. Circa 1950. This is an uncommon variation.
#CA048 - Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company Letterhead
5" tall onionskin type paper with the famous C and O and B & O logos. Gauging by wrapping on these, I’d say they’re pretty old. Circa 1950. These were kept by a local fellow (Norm Smith) who used to work for the railroads in this area. He is now retired. Anytime he would hear about a station that was about to be boarded up he would go treasure hunting. He was nice enough to sell me some of the items that he had collected in quantity over the years.
#CS022 - Griddle Mix Pancake Bag
Unused 12" tall vintage pancake bags from the I. O. A. Foods Co. in Cedar Rapids, IA. Says "Griddle Mix for Buckwheat Compound Pancakes". This company went out of business a long time ago and these were left in the warehouse. Circa 1950.
#MS148 - Box of 500 Cloth Master Buck Clothing Tags
You get the whole box of 500 for only $3. That's less than a penny each. Vintage 2" wide cloth tags that say "Master-Buck Sportswear by Buckeye Sanforized". These are great for crafts and other projects. Unused old factory stock from the 1950s.sd
#SIGN035 - Florida Tangerines Sign with Tangerines in a Large Glass Bowl
Vintage color 14" wide cardboard store sign. Nice image with a glass bowl from the time period filled with tangerines. Also has a small image of the Florida Tangerine Special Train. Says "The Zipper-Skin Fruit". These are from the early 1950s which is when this style of artwork was used for Florida citrus products. The space to the right was where they wrote the prices. The reverse has writing on it too so the sign could be seen from either side. Reverse says "Florida Tangerines The Zipper-Skin Fruit". They came from the basement of a large store in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania called Trimble's. The store got signs with their deliveries and threw them in piles in the basement. One of our long time customers rescued these (thank's Bob) and a number of others. These are in excellent condition. Of note, magazine ads for Florida Oranges from the 1950s retail for $8 - $10. These should retail for substantially more. Nice unused condition.
#SP043 - Large Very Rare Old Crown Ale Display
Vintage 16" tall heavy cardboard Old Crown Ale Display. The pictured one is folded together. They are self standing and three dimensional. A bottle of Old Crown Ale went in the center of the display. This is a rare item and a great looking piece if you've got one of the bottles. Just have a few that were old stock that was rescued from the brewery when it went out of business in 1973. These are circa 1950 and in near mint condition. You rare see this kind of stuff anymore. The brewery was located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The center aluminum looking part you see in the center is like a cave recessed in the display. The bottle was placed there.
#TY346 - Nicely Detailed Airedale Dog Figure
Vintage 2" wide Airedale dog figure. These are unsold old stock that we found in remote storage at our favorite toy store in Kentucky. The top of the base is marked "Airedale". These are nicely detailed plastic figures from the 1950s.
#TY352 - Old Rubber Snake
Vintage 9 1/4" long hand painted rubber snake. These were in very old boxes marked Japan and are from around the 1950s. Unsold old stock from my favorite toy store in Kentucky. The snakes themselves are unmarked.
#ZZZ024 - 48 Star Paper Flag on a Wooden Stick
Vintage paper 48 star flag on a 3" stick. These are unused old stock in nice shape. Some paper aging. On July 4, 1912, the U.S. flag grew to 48 stars. It was the official flag for 47 years all the way up till 1959. So these go back to at least the 1950s. The box they were in looks much older.
