A very RARE and highly appealing Black Memorabilia Advertising Diecut!

Marked "Copyright 1924", in the lower left hand corner, this extremely hard-to-find advertising piece measures 10.5 inches wide x 13.5 inches high. Colorful and visually interesting, the heavy cardboard diecut depicts an engaging Uncle Wabash serenely strumming his banjo on his front porch! Guess the message to the consumer was, "Eat one of Uncle Wabash's cupcakes to experience your own little slice of heaven and serenity!"

Condition of this charming piece of Black Historical ephemera is quite good given its 80+ years of age!! Old water staining to bottom of the diecut does little to detract from the piece. Crease line to one cupcake edge. Appropriate age foxing to back.

Offered is a wonderful, circa 1920's, John Wyeth apothecary bottle sporting a fancy, shield-shaped, foil label, Elixir Phenobarbitol.

Decorative stock bottles such as this beauty were meant to be refilled and reused and were the pride of the pharmacy staff. Eye-catching, reflective medicine bottles such as these also served as an advertising mechanism as they often were placed prominently in pharmacy windows to attract passers-by.

This 8.5 inch, amber, wide-mouth example reveals ground glass construction and dates to the 1920's era.

This empty bottle is in excellent condition with no damage. The ground glass stopper cannot be removed and appears perfect.

The label shows light wear and staining commensurate with age and use. Although the label appears silver in the photos, it is more of a GOLD-toned foil.

A difficult to find bottle with a label in this very nice condition.

This diminutive, C1920-30s, Black Valentine Cupid diecut is protected in a 4 x 6 inch, decorative wood frame, surrounded by a gold foil mat featuring white foil roses. Additional tiny diecuts of pink roses are placed at each corner.

This adorable, smiling cupid diecut is in very good condition. Two teeny fold lines are present that are very difficult to see unless using magnification (see closeup photo) - one in the left arm and another in the left wing. Otherwise, perfect!

A very unusual, vintage find!

Offered is a quack, Parke-Davis box of 12 unused ampules of Iron Cacodylate (arsenic) dating to the 1930s. Can't imagine the value of arsenic in curing any diseased state, but it appeared commonly in old medical practices.

The box is in very nice condition with some wear from age and storage. Measures 2.5" high x 2.2" wide x 1.5" deep and contains 12 individually boxed vials all in very nice condition.

This vibrantly colored, uncut, circa 1920's, Little Mary Jane Paper doll designed by Berta and Elmer Hadai, ran exclusively in Good Housekeeping magazine and features a Halloween theme complete with jack-o-lanterns and a basket of harvested fall apples!

Professionally matted and framed some many years back, this lovely piece of wall art measures 10.5 inches wide x 13.5 inches long and remains in excellent original condition! Any discoloration, facing of color or reflection seen in photos is related to the difficulty photographing an object under glass and is NOT an imperfection to the piece.

Measuring just 2.25 inches in height (minus the hair!!), this extremely RARE, clear glass Golliwogg Perfume Bottle was sold by VIGNY Perfumeries of Paris, France in the 1920’s. The clear glass perfume was the second version of the Vigny “Le Golliwogg” perfume produced from the 1920’s into the 1930’s. The bottle design and name are based on a character created by Englishwoman, Florence K. Upton around the turn of the century. The bottle, itself, was made by Verreries Brosse.

This darling, all-glass piece remains in superb condition-other than its missing front label. It does, however, retain its wonderful, original paper label at the base of the bottle that reads, “ Made in France, Fluid Cont oz 13”. Underneath the label, the base of the clear glass bottle is impressed, “Bottle Made in France”. Additionally, the perfume retains one half of its original and rarely-found, pink-satin-lined, cardboard box which is also labeled "Vigny, Paris" on one of its panels.

The Golliwogg’s head is the perfume stopper (which presently is quite securely affixed in place), and the facial enameling/painting remains as clear and crisp as the day it was applied! Even his black furry hair retains its vibrant, original, dark tones! The Golly’s glass collar is enameled/painted white with black polka dots and his feet are accented in black.

Along with photos of the Golliwog perfume is a photo of an original 1920’s magazine advertisement for Vigny Perfumes including “Le Golliwogg”. The magazine advertisement is not available for sale and is only presented to serve as an historical reference.

A very, very special piece of Black Memorabilia that has appeal to Black Americana, perfume bottle, and Golliwog collectors alike!

Also pictured here and available for sale separately--- coming from the same estate--- is a 2.50 inch, Vigny, France, Golliwogg Perfume in Satin Camphor Glass dating post-WWI and priced at $425.00, as well as a second, 2.25 inch clear glass, 1920's, Golliwogg Perfume bottle complete with all paper labels (but without the box) and priced at $375.00. The satin camphor glass bottle was the VERY FIRST version of the Vigny "Le Golliwogg" perfume, and is much less-frequently found. The "Golly" brand continued to be sold through the 1920-30's. Type "Vigny" in the SEARCH box on our homepage to see all French Golliwogg Perfume bottles!

Offered is a wonderful, C1950s, Art Deco-styled, advertising store sign that features in bold capital letters the word, "COSMETICS". This sign, which originally hung in a Grand Rapids, Michigan, establishment, might well have been displayed in either a drug store or a beauty salon which sold various lines of ladies' cosmetics.

The black-painted, metal frame houses a plastic, cream-colored insert that features an embossed lettering and design technique that advertises the name of the product for sale. The background of this insert sports a streamlined, horizontal, raised "striping" reminiscent of the Art Deco era. When light is allowed to pass through the plastic, translucent insert, the insert appears to be magically illuminated so that the green-colored backside of the sign shines through with brilliance. This effect can be enjoyed by either hanging the sign in front of a window or by fastening tiny LED lights (not included) on the backside of the frame.

The dimensions are approximately 48"L x 5.5"W x 3/4"D, and the overall condition of the sign is very good. The plain metal frame has been repainted in a durable, semi-gloss, black finish. The painted finish is in very good condition with areas of minor surface imperfection and slight areas of roughness here and there.

The vintage plastic insert is laminated in two tones, with the front noting a rich, aged, cream color, and the back noting a rich green tone. The front of the insert has faint surface imperfections and some areas of uneven discoloring. Overall, the insert retains a nice glossed surface patina commensurate with its age.

A note: the first photo best represents what the sign will look like when illuminated from the back with LED or natural window lighting.

Offered is a very Scarce Hickory Shaft Golf Club from the 1920 era.

This club is a hard to find smooth faced example faintly stamped "WRIGHT & DITSON" on the back (otherwise unmarked) and on the shaft as noted in the photos. Smooth faced clubs fell out of favor around circa 1900 when clubs sporting grooves became more popular and by 1910 were only offered in a few catalogues.

This desirable club has a period leather grip, a straight shaft and a forged head with various leading edge small dings commensurate with a honorably but not abused club. The Boston, MA made club measures 36 inches from the heel to the end of the grip and is probably considered a mashie niblick by the angle of the face.

With the exception of very minimal wear to edges, this circa 1890s stereoview card is in fine condition!

Labeled #298, "Native Cane Grinders in Sunny Florida", the scene depicts 7 young Black men either chewing on a sugar cane stalk or holding a sugar cane cutting implement.

Printed on the back of the card is a brief history of sugar cane cultivation from its origins in 500 AD China to its introduction in the US in 1675 by the Jesuits. The harvesting process is also discussed.

Measuring 4.75 inches long, this C1940's metal noise maker toy featuring a Black Minstrel is marked "US Metal Toy Company". It remains in fine condition with some evidence of tiny superficial scratches and surface wear predominantly on the backside, but continues to make a very loud and abrasive noise when twirled on its pale blue handle--just as it did many years ago on a New Year's Eve night!

Offered is a fabulous, eye-appealing, one-pan balance scale sporting a marble top and an extraordinarily decorative, chrome-plated, iron base.

The chrome surfaced top front name plate reads: "The MICROMETER Patented Mar. 22 - 1898 / Jul. 21 - 1903. The Dodge Scale Co. 11th Ave. & 20th St. New York."

This fancy balance scale utilizes a novel-designed, weighted beam that turns a moveable weight resulting in great accuracy.

The attractive, liquid, bubble level is fully functional. The plated pan measures 9 inches in diameter. The chrome-plated base measures 12.75 inches L x 5.5 inches W. The height of the scale measures 9.75 inches high with the pan in place.

Overall, the condition notes minimal surface rust and chrome loss mostly to the scale mechanism. The marble is undamaged, with mild rust stain and minor surface scuffs. There are some minimal, unobtrusive areas of loose or peeling chrome. Condition and patina are commensurate with age and use of an antique apothecary scale.

The fusion of ingenuity of design and function combined with quality and accuracy sets this scale apart from its contemporaries and makes it a perfect, present-day apothecary collectible.

Still works perfectly!

Offered is very stylish and hard to come by license plate topper from the 1950-1960's era.

This piece is quality-made of heavy, stamped aluminum formed in the shape a shield and embellished with brass letters "MD" and a caduceus emblem. The topper, quite importantly in emergency situations, identified the driver of the vehicle as a doctor.

This measures 5.5"W x 3.5"H not including the mounting bracket. The topper is in very nice condition and sports a patina commensurate with age. Not often found in this lovely condition.
