#ZLBE076 - Very Old and Unusual Home City Temperance Beer Label
Vintage 4 3/4" wide The Home City Temperance Beer label. These are an interesting piece of history. Around the turn of the century, In mid Ohio, just north of here, the Temperance Movement (to make alcohol illegal) was raging. In 1906 "The Home City Brewing Company" in Springfield, Ohio was established, and created Temperance Beer as a low alcohol alternative. In 1909, there was a vote in Springfield, and all of the saloons were closed and alcohol could no longer be sold in any amount.  Temperance Beer only had 1/2 of 1% alcohol, but could not be sold in Springfield.  That was the end of the brand.  The brewery kept going selling their other brands outside of Springfield until 1919 when prohibition was enacted and the Brewery met it's demise.  A  journal from that time period writes that when Springfield went dry under the Rose Law on March 29th, 1909 church bells rang all over the city and prayer meetings took place everywhere. Ninety-seven saloons and Temperance Beer went out of business that day. The labels says "Guaranteed Under the Food and Drug Act of 1906" "Contains Less than 1/2 of 1% alcohol" "Guaranteed Non-Intoxicating" "Guaranteed not to come within the consideration of the U. S. Internal Revenue Department". These labels were found in the attic of the building, and we were able to purchase all of them.

#ZLCA022 - Dana's Jardiniere Tomatoes Can Label
11" wide vintage label. Very old label from the early 1900s. Doesn't have a weight marked on it which was required by the 1910s. Really nice image. These labels are unused stock that were found at the Dana Canned Goods Co. warehouse in Belpre, Ohio many years ago. These labels are fascinating. What in the world did "Dana's Jardiniere" have to do with tomatoes? Excellent condition.

#SIGN111 - Rare Early MWA (Modern Woodmen of America) Paper Flag on Pin

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the Modern Woodmen of America. The Modern Woodmen of America is one of the largest fraternal benefit societies in the United States. It was formed in January of 1883 at the by Joseph Cullen in Lyons Iowa. The original group only accepted "white males" between the ages of 18-45, and only in what they considered to be the 12 "healthiest" states. You were not allowed to be from a large city either.  Certain professions were prohibited too. This strange fraternal created a large life insurance provider over the years including investments and banking. The organization itself is still a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society. These 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 "MWA" and have the society logo on them with an axe and gavel. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but these are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them, so we would suggest ordering early.

#ZL200 - Rare Heinle's Jockey Club Carbonated Root Beer Label with Racehorse - As low as $1 each
Click the picture to see a larger image. Here is an unusual and rare soda label. They are 4 1/2" wide and say "Heinle's Jockey Club Carbonated Root Beer" on them. Really nice image of a jockey on a leaping racehorse. These are the only examples we have ever seen. Heinle's was a Hires competitor back in the 1800s and sold extract and bottled root beer. In 1913, they were taken to court for violation of the Pure Food and Drug Act, and from what I can tell were out of business by 1915. These labels are likely from somewhere between 1900 and 1910. They were located at the Chas. L. Heinle & Co. building at 2731 Kensington Ave, Philadelphia, PA. They came from the estate of a long time dealer in Wisconsin. We would normally price these much higher because none of the root beer collectors have them, but we bought them right, so we are passing a great price on to you. These labels are in excellent unused condition for their age.

#BEADS0359 - Group of 10 Large White Triangle Beads - Venetian Trade Beads
You will get 10 for $1.50. That's 15¢ each. These are bright white and fairly large. The sizes vary as in the picture from about 9mm to 15mm long. These were sold back in the day as trade beads. There are not a lot of these and this is an amazing price on them, so don't wait long.

Here's the incredible story. In 1898, the Societa Veneziana Conterie Consortium was formed. It was a group of 16 bead makers who put their beads in one place so they could be sold by one sales force. Some of the stock was old when it came there in 1898 (these are those)! In recent times, the consortium was dissolved and the remaining 400,000 plus pounds of beads were sold to an American Indian Trading post. We were able to get ahold of a good quantity of the oldest types (the wrapping confirms the are pre WWI).

#SIGN110 - Rare Early T.P.A. (Travelers Protective Association) Very Large Silk

Vintage 5 1/2" tall Travelers Protective Association silk. The Travelers Protective Association was establish in June of 1882 in Bellfontaine, Ohio to gain concessions from hotels, railroads and transportation agencies if a member had a grievance.  They were not considered a union, but were registered as a fraternal benefit society. These are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master box, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known.  They say "T.P.A." and have the society logo on them. They are made from the same cloth as cigarette silks, but are larger. They may have been hung on wooden sticks as flags. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them, so we would suggest ordering early as they likely won't be around long. They are not bright white anymore, but are in excellent unused condition. Nice pieces.

#ZBOT134 - Dr. Blumer's Laxal Remedy Label - The Baby's Friend
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage 4" tall "Dr. Blumer's Laxal" label. Says "Laxal The Baby's Friend". These are from around 1900 when a lot of babies died from opium/morphine addiction caused by teething and quieting medications. The Pure Food and Drug Act had not been passed yet, but because of public outcry other medicines were brought out as a substitute.  This is one of those. It doesn't list what was actually in it (as was required by the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906), but claims it was Non-Alcoholic and contained "no Opium, Morphine or other habit producing drugs".  Says it was "A common sense remedy for Baby's complaints". Makes me wonder what they did put in it. Found at the factory many years ago.
