This is an old Cream of Wheat Advertisement that appeared in the July 1920 issue of Needlepoint Magazine. The ad features the cereal, Cream of Wheat, being eaten by a gray cat from a broken bowl. There is a young child sitting on a step crying. There is a smiling chef holding another bowl. The ad reads “There’s always more Cream of Wheat”. The artwork for the advertisement was done by prominent artist George Gibbs.
The ad was removed from the original 20th century periodical. Included with the Cream of Wheat advertisement is the beautiful cover of the 1920 Needlepoint magazine showing a young girl dressed in white, as well as an ad for Borden’s Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, and an ad for Cleveland Metal Products Company Oil Perfection Cook Stoves and Ovens.
The Borden’s ad is also very nice and features a baby in the center with other children clustered around the picture.
There is some discoloration due to age. The edges are a rough but would be covered up if matted or framed. There are some small tears on the edges and small holes where the pages were stapled together. There is a crease through the center of the ads.
There are four pages to this item. The pages are printed back to back. You can separate the pages and frame two ads if you wish. The Cream of Wheat ad is on the back of the magazine cover and the Borden’s ad is on the back of the Perfection Stove advertisement.
The pages measure approximately 10 3/4” by 15”.
