Antique SALESMAN SAMPLE Premium GOLD MEDAL FLOUR Wooden Barrel MINIATURE

Antique SALESMAN SAMPLE Premium GOLD MEDAL FLOUR Wooden Barrel MINIATURE

Circa Early 20th century 1900s-1920s--- good untouched/uncleaned condition --- nice original surface patina with expected label wear. It measures approximately 2 10/16" tall and 1.25" diameter at base. It is a really neat piece - I have not seen one like this before. I have had a lot of barrels - some plain - some that housed nails or tacks but none with advertising of a product before. Gold Medal Flour was sold in 196 lb wooden barrels and it appears that this is a miniature version of the barrel - the original would open at the top - this one opens a third of the way down and can be used to hold small items or coins. A really neat Advertising Item and very primitive looking. The label says Washburn Crosby Co & Superlative Flour - Gold Metal.

This will make an outstanding addition to your early advertising collection.
