She recently sold us all of her remaining inventory as she no longer runs the business. Thanks Lorie. We will make sure to get these items out to people who will appreciate them.

#SIGN112 - Rare Early B.P.O.Elks Paper Flag on Pin

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the B.P.O.Elks. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (also known as the Elks Lodge or simply The Elks) is to this day one of the largest fraternal orders in the United States with around a million current members. It was formed as a fraternal order and social club in 1868 and has a lot of rituals, traditions, and regalia that is very simllar to the Freemasons.  It was a boys only club until recent years, and many lodges are still men only. They sponsored an insurance fund in the 1800s that was banned in 1907 when the money was mismanaged. Since then it has been a social club that has donated to many charities. These flags are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master boxes, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known.  They say "B.P.O.Elks" and have the society Elk logo on them. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them.

$1.50

This is a very good seller as dental collectibles are hard to find and this is a great one.

#ZLCA906 - Super Rare Very Large E. B. Millar &  Co. Curacoa Coffee Can Label
Click on the image to a detailed image of the entire label. This is without a doubt the most beautiful label we have ever had. No picture can do them justice. They are super rare 18 1/4" wide labels that went on a coffee can. There is no pound or measurement mark meaning they were made before 1910. Our best guess is right around 1900. The images are spectacular. Has writing all over it. "Millar's Celebrated Curacoa Pure Clean Wholesome Coffee" "The Aromatic Morning Cup". It has guarantees and preparation directions on it too. These are unused old stock from the plant that was on Michigan Ave. in Chicago. All have some aging, but very minor for their age. It might be a round corner or a small edge tear or some very slight staining, but all minor stuff. These would be incredible framed in a kitchen. We got them from the estate of friend and dealer Bob Secrist.
$15.00



#SIGN118 - Rare Early Foresters of America Paper Flag on Pin  (Early Foresters Insurance Item)

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the Foresters of America. These are paper flags with the same colorful illustration on both sides that say "Foresters of America" "Liberty Unity, Benevolence and Concord". Vintage 2" wide paper flag on 2 1/2" long metal pin for the Foresters of America. This was a benevolent fraternal organization that existed under this name from 1890 till 1969. It evolved from ancient European groups and also offered insurance to members. Over the years, the fraternal part of the organization was lost and it because what is now the Foresters Insurance Company! The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but these are in amazing condition for their age. These are very rare.

$1.50



#ZBOT103 - Universal Special Cream Label that went on a Milk Glass Jar
Vintage 4 7/8" wide label. Great image of a period lady with scrolling. These are fantastic. They came from the remains of the Universal Medicine Company many years ago and I had a full display of the jars with the labels on them. They go on a milk glass jar. These were a little curled and so I put them under some book to straighten them out many years ago and just refound them. They still have a slight curl, but will glue on a round milk glass jar just fine. Says "Universal Vanishing Cream is an excellent preparation fror Daily Use" etc. "Universal Laboratories Chicago". They are likely right around 1900.
