Featured is an incredible gesso framed advertising lithograph from the Charles A. Pillsbury Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This print features their trademark eagle at the time (before the dough boy), and the factory itself in the lower inset view. Circa 1900.Details
This is a classic self-framed tin sign from the Grape Nuts cereal brand, featuring a young girl and her Saint Bernard dog holding her school bag in its mouth. The slogan says “To School Well Fed on Grape Nuts, There’s a Reason”. This particular sign is commonly seen in many early 1900’s General Store photographs. Apparently the sign was distributed widely as you can find them fairly easily even today.
