This was a great find last year. This sign hung above the counter and was used to hold bags of different sizes. Put your bubble gum or chips into a size bag that was needed. The sprite boy decal from the 40's does fade over time. So far so good ... Just keep it out of the sun.
Can you think of something that you bought back in the 50's from a corner store in a paper bag with 5 different sizes available ? Remember the screen door with the push plate coca cola sign . Now it's one plastic size bag that fits all and no mom and pop store . Except in some rural areas maybe.
"Reg.U.S.Pat.Off." 1941-1962 date of sign. I think the sprite boy was stopped being used around 1957 .
