#ZLB042 - Indian Chief Stock Broom Label
Vintage 4 1/4" tall Indian Chief broom label. Nice colorful image of an Indian Chief in full headdress. These are what are called stock labels. They are labels that a printer held for broom companies to print their info on. Marked "Louis Roesch Co. San Francisco" (printer) in fine print at the bottom. Circa 1940s. These wrapped around a broom handle. Broom companies had a tough time in the 1930s and 40s when vacuum cleaners were mass produced and no longer an expensive luxury item. A lot of broom companies went out of business and the labels turn up in the old buildings occasionally. We acquired these from a long time label dealer on the west coast that we bought out. Excellent unused condition.

Vintage 3/8" tall copper coated steel bell charm. These are flat on the back side. These are old store stock from the late 1940s in unused condition.

Vintage 6 1/4" tall late 1940s route receipt from the Coca-Cola bottling plant in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Logo says "Keystone Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Inc. Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania". These are old receipts that were still hanging around the plant. They were used and show who the order was sold to and how many cases of Coke and Soda Water they bought minus empty bottles and cases they returned. They are in very good shape.  Most will have a couple of tiny staple pinholes. Coca Cola route receipts are becoming widely collected as Coke checks have gotten scarcer and more expensive.  You can still assemble a nice collection of receipts from many different plants for a very reasonable price.

#CH326-14 - Gene Autry Loaded Pistols Poster/Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1948 movie "Loaded Pistols" starring Gene Autry and "World's Wonder Horse Champion". Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
$10.00
