    Description

    Early Chocolate Brownie Advertising Candy Sign The sign is holed as made at the top to hang it from a fan cord or on the wall. Very early and very rare, this piece pictures in great detail a group of little Palmer Cox-type Brownies carrying a stack of chocolate candies. The candies are shaped very much like their pointed hats and are called brownies... well you get the picture...chocolate = brown-ie. Clever early 1880s lithograph on thin cardboard, printed just on one side. This candy company with trademark in the center distributed a series of this type of advertiser. We have handled several but never this particular sign. The triangle shaped sign has a small crimp along the right bottom corner, but is very good to excellent without tears. The subject matter and graphic is delightfully sinful just like a box of chocolates. Size is 6" square.
