The paper items offered here are from the early part of the
Twentieth Century. Some of the labels are from products that were
distributed to the general public. These depict African-Americans
in stereotypical characters from that era. Others are from personal
products (hair care, perfume, etc.) that were manufactured for
and marketed to African-Americans. These typically feature light-skinned,
glamourous characters. We offer these items for the historical
significance that they represent.
This is a net price sale of early Twentieth Century African-American
paper memorabilia. Lots are sold on a first-come, first-served
basis. We urge our customers to contact us to reserve lots before
sending payment. PLEASE READ THE RULES about ordering before placing
