C.1900 Advertising Aluminum Note Holder - Compliments of Good Luck Clothiers
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: A souvenir from a visit to Good Luck Clothiers of Granite City, Herrin. Made of aluminum, the front features the "compliments of" writing in black ink. The note holder top lid opens and then "folds back" so that you can insert paper. It's a pressure sensitive mechanism so if you pull out the papers instead of tearing them off, you will need to replenish the paper on a continual basis. Right now, I have cardstock in the container.
CONDITION: Well, as you can see, the piece IS old and has shadowing on it. I don't know if this can be washed or not, but I love the patina of age and I think most advertising collectors do as well.
METAL CONTENT: Aluminum
SIZE: When closed, the piece measures 3-11/16" x 2".
FINAL COMMENTS: A nice advertising premium!
