Another find at my parents house, these are old advertisements, or maybe giveaways for campbells soup. I found someone on Ebay selling an identical item, and they were being sold as vintage fans from the 1930's or 1940's. I'm trying to think of a good way I can use these as decor, without ruining them! Any further info on these is appreciated!

    Fabulous! You could mount them on the wall just by placing them ON TOP OF push-pins with large crystal heads. That is, you could this was fashion a 'frame', and then place the fans on the frame. You need not ever puncture the fans.

    Good idea, it would work well with them being a pair, too! Or even putting them in a shadow box? now you've got the ball rolling ; )

    Might want to frame them and be sure to use glass that is uv protected. I have some 1920's Campbell Soup advertisements in frames but failed to have protected glass.... the pictures have faded even being placed away from sunlight. Just another thought.....

    very good idea I'm glad you mentioned it because I would have never thought about it! Although I'd have been upset once I saw the sun ruin them. Thanks Bonnie!
