This small popcorn box is marked; Sample and it would have given you just enough to want more! On one side of the box is Jumbo, the circus elephant that was used as the mascot. On the other side is a clown beating a drum followed by a small dog. The side panels has testimonials about the flavor surprise of the world’s finest seasoned popcorn. It has no top closure and would have been served to you with not much more than a handful of popped popcorn enticing you to buy more. I believe it is probably from the late 1930's or early 1940's. Jumbo Popcorn was from the Burch Mfg. Co. of Kansas City, Missouri.
It would measure about 3 3/8” high by 2 ½” wide by 1 3/8” deep and it is in very nice condition with minimal wear. The glued edge doesn’t line up perfectly but this is a manufacturing flaw.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
