C.1900 EDWARDIAN Sen Sen Chewing Gum Box - Empty but Great Graphics
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: Here's a SOUVENIR edition of a Sen Sen Chewing Gum container - shaped like a book and colored BLUE for a boy (check out another listing on Ruby Lane to see what the pink one looks like). The top lid opens to reveal advertising of the product on the underside.
CONDITION: For its age, not too bad. There is foxing on the inside bottom of the box and there is nibbling on the bottom section of the spine. The advertising panel has one small tear/paper section missing at the bottom lower left. Oh, and the gold colored spine of the piece shows some dust.
HALLMARKS: Karle Litho Co, Rochester, N.Y. on the advertising panel.
SIZE: 3-7/8" wide x 5-1/2" high x 3/4" deep.
FINAL COMMENTS: A great piece of drug store/candy store ephemera!
