Item: Kis Me Chewing Gum Embossed Sign Louisville Ky
This rare, beautiful diecut cardboard, embossed easel back sign, dates from around 1900 and is a wonderful image of a pretty young lady in a flowery blue hat surrounded by golden lily of the valley. Across the bottom of the sign is the inscription Kis - Me American Chicle Co. Inc. Kis - Me Gum Factory, Louisville, Ky. Her cheeks have high blush with blue eyes and lovely full peach lips. The company went to great detail to advertise their chewing gum from her necklace with the Kis-Me logo to the small Kis-Me If you Wish logo in the bottom field. It has survived over 100 years with a minor wear and a small amount of damage as following: rear brim of the lady's hat missing, repaired crease in the lower left corner, mainly along the top. The piece has been examined and and reframed. This is a high quality chewing gum piece of history and the colors are breath taking and will fit any room in your home. It has been matted in a lovely pink-red color with a gold frame. This piece and many of our new listings are fresh to the market and have been in a collection for many years. We were honored that we were able to buy the complete collection and offer to other collectors for sale. It has been framed for display and protection. 16427-71QQTP
