Remember drinking milk or soda from paper straws? And remember when they had an accordion section to bend to any angle? Well this is a box of those fun, vintage Flex-Straws in pastel colors! The front of the box shows a couple of the straws that bend to any angle to; make milk drinking FUN! On the back Mom serves a steaming beverage to a patient in bed. There is also a perforated section for making a Reclosable Dispenser on the back. It says it contains 40 Jumbo Size straws but it appears there might be one or two less than that in the box. These were manufactured by the Flex-Straw Co. of Santa Monica, Calif. and the last patent date would put these around 1953 which is definitely in keeping with the graphics .
The box measures about 8 ½” by 5” by ½” and is in fairly good condition with minor edge wear and soiling. The straws measure about 7 7/8” long.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
