1903 Ad McIlhenny Tabasco Sauce Black Americana One Drop Works Wonders Waiter:
Nicely illustrated for McIlhenny's Tabasco, New Iberia, La. Ad measures about 2.5 x 4". Page is whole and uncut. Sorry about the shadow that's me taking the picture, lol.
Good condition for its age, spots/water stains, chipped margins, edge wear, fading, staple holes, age-related wear. Will be shipped flat First Class Mail. Combined shipping available for items purchased within 7 days. Name and date of publication included when available. The story: about 20 years ago a professor/friend at the University of Texas in San Antonio gave my mother-in-law a huge amount of very old magazines that she had been using to teach costume design. The dates of publication ranged from the 1860's to the 1960's. They were already taken apart, cut up, in pieces, staples removed, etc. My mother-in-law refused an offer by a local dealer to take $20 for them and instead gave them to me. At that time was pretty new. I started selling them for her on and generated a nice little "pocket money" income for her. After a couple years, she told me to keep the rest and dispose of them however I wanted. She passed away about 10 years ago, and we've been moving them around with us ever since. We've recently relocated to Oklahoma and I'm digging them out and listing again on my husband's account. The few that are still whole I haven't touched, although I may eventually list them that way.
So if there is a specific advertisement you would like to see listed, let me know and I'll keep an eye out. It is so much fun to go through them again and look at the beautiful artwork and photos and read the funny and sweet articles and advertisements.
These items are great for collecting, framing, research, etc. I have an entire stash of ads I will never sell!
