C F Blanke Coffee Pot 1904
Circa 1904 Stoneware Coffee pot from the C.F. Blanke Coffee and Spice Company, originally based in Saint Louis, MO, but eventually in many markets in the Middle of the United States. While some Blanke coffee pots are commonly found advertising the Faust Brand of coffee, this particular one is very rare, and was probably used during the 1904 Worlds Fair in St. Louis as the Blanke company sponsored an asian garden, and this is the only item I have ever seen with the asian theme to it. I suspect this might have been used during the fair in the pavilion. i am aware of two of these pitchers to date.
Faust Brand White Pepper Spice Tin St Louis MO
Circa 1920 Faust Brand of Pepper. The Faust name was also used as a beer by the Anheuser Busch family as they were close friends. Their was also a very famous restaurant in St. Louis owned by Tony Faust, so I would imagine his pepper brand was used there!
Biston Coffee Co St Louis MO, Golden Grains Brand Paper Label Tin
Circa 1915, this tin has a paper label and was manufactured by the Biston Coffee Company in Saint Louis, MO. Saint Louis was a very large coffee manufacturing city in the early 1900s, hence, there are a lot of coffee advertising items available still today. The Folgers brand was the largest from the city to emerge over the years.
Johnson-Layne Coffee Co, Gunpowder Brand General Store Bin, St. Louis, MO
Circa 1910, The Johnson Layne Coffee Company in Saint Louis, MO was in business for only a few short years, but their flagship brand was the Log Cabin Brand of Coffee. This particular general merchandise storage bin was designed for customers to scoop out their coffee in bulk when buying the product. I am guessing the Gunpowder brand was a high potency coffee given the name, as I have seen this on a few other manufacturers tins also.
