Sweetheart Sparkles Straws Packaging circa 1950’s

Here’s a fun packaging for Sweetheart Sparkles Straws made by Divisions of Maryland Cup Corporation. They are colorful transparent dinking straws that display nicely through the die cut window in the shape of a cup. I really like how they arranged the type in the stem of the cup. There’s no date on this thing but the type and shapes totally scream 1950’s. Enjoy!

Starting with Sterling circa 1959

Here’s a fun 8.5″ x 11″ booklet put out by the Sterling Silversmiths of America, N.Y. titled “Starting with Sterling, a project book for students”. It’s some sort of interior design guide on how to choose silverware based on the type of interiors you have etc. It’s filled with fun two color illustrations and type. Designer / Illustrator is not credited. Enjoy!

Table Tennis packaging by Milt Herder

Here’s a fun packaging designed by Milt Herder for Pressman Toy Corp, New York. The colors, the thick type and the hand drawn faces makes this piece so much fun. Because of the graphics and because the company went through a name change in 1942, I’m going to date this to the late 40’s.The box was in such bad shape but I still thought it was worth showing. Enjoy!

Short cut to dinner with Osterizer

Here’s a sun little recipe booklet by Oster, Osterizer (John Oster Manufacturing Co) Winsconsin. The illustrations look very familiar but I can not piece it together. No credit or year listed but for the look of it I’m going to date this to the 1950’s. Enjoy!

Blair Spray-Fix Packaging circa 1949

Here’s a funky packaging for Blair Art Products from Memphis Tennessee. It’s a low odor spray fixative with a very lighthearted and fun feel. I wish their products looked less serious as they look today, specially for products with artist as their main target audience. Anyway, really love the funky illustrations on the front and back, although the front guy looks like he’s enjoying the smell of it quite too much. Beautiful script type on the front as well. I’m going to take a wild guess and date this to the late 40’s based on this little history page which states spray fixatives were introduced in 1949. Enjoy!
