Advertising pieces come in a wide variety of shapes, styles and even what they are made of. There are also pieces on the market that may take you a while to sink in that they are advertising pieces because they may be something like a porcelain cup.
One such piece like this is this great mug by PSAG Bavaria. It may take you a second to realize that it is an advertising giveaway for the placement of CUDAHY’S REXSOMA (the manufacturer put CUDAHY’S REXSOMA on the inside of the mug near the top).
CUDAHY’S REXSOMA pharmacies had PSAG Bavaria produce this terrific mug in late 1800’s. The mug is a white porcelain and has a rose decoration on the outside—which helps you not realize right off the bat that this is an advertising piece.
You can see the mug in my Etsy shop here, head on over and check it out. What kinds of advertising pieces like this have you run across?
