Vintage Kerns Meats Advertising Statue
This fabulous piggy was made to promote the Kerns Meat Food company. He probably spent time displayed in a butcher shop or market advertising the Kerns line of products. He stands 21" tall and is made of a composition/paper mache type material. He has suffered some abuse over the years and shows the scars including dings, chips, wear and extensive material loss to the base. Even with the damage (we politely call it character) he is a special, one of a kind piece.
1965 Baskin Robbins 31 Flavors Ad Clock
Baskin-Robbins was formed in 1945 when Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins merged their ice cream parlors.

This clock once hung in one of their parlors and is still in good working condition. It is battery operated, measures 14" across and is dated 1965 on the bottom of the clock face. Here's your chance to bring back some childhood memories by hanging this one in your kitchen.
