I got this from a sale we just happened to run across on our way to another sale. It was all one dollar tables and quarter tables. I got a lot of stuff there, including this vintage advertising tray.
What are they advertising with this lovely, delicious-looking still life? Is it the bread? Or the fruit? Maybe it's the lovely tulips in the back? None of the above, I'm afraid. Take a look at the lower right corner.
I know I've seen a similar tray, only with all kinds of breakfast goodies surrounding the cigs, but I forget which retro-vintage blog I saw it on. They really stand out and look odd on that one!
I owe the blog an extended post of finds from the past month or so. I just haven't gotten around to finishing the pics. It's been a slow summer with very few good hauls, but there has been some cool stuff popping up here and there. I'll try to get that out next week.
