These politically incorrect Indian Chief Headdresses were made as a give-away advertisement for the White Castle Hamburger restaurants in the mid-20th century. We know that they were offered before 1963, because there is no zip code in the address.We love the earth tone coloring of the feathers and the bead-printed bands. But the extra-special feature is that these can be adapted for children or adults to wear! On the front it reads: ME BIG CHIEF! - BUY ONLY White Castle ALL-BEEF HAMBURGERS On the back are the instructions for sizing for an adult or a child to wear. The bottom band is detachable and the pre-punched slots make it easy to size correctly for your head. The measurements before you assemble the headdress are 15 inches wide by 6-5/8 inches high Made from pliable, but sturdy cardstock, these are in superb condition for their age, showing only slight discoloration on the back, as only a true vintage item would age. The green printing on the back indicates that these were produced by the Paperlynen Company of Columbus, Ohio.
