This is an old general store metal counter dispenser for Tootsie Rolls. Features two front slots for stacking the candy with short phrases behind them. Phrases include: "Oh! So Good!", "Take Some Home", "Delicious Candy", "The Perfection Confection", "Tootsie Rolls Bring Smiles" among others, and "Tootsie Rolls; 5 cents, Better Than Ever" at the top of the display. This would make a unique display piece for your home!
5" deep at the bottom
1.5" deep at the top
The metal on this piece shows some oxidation and light surface rust, and there is some staining, possibly paint, on the front; I have not tried to clean it off. Not sure of age, but guessing this one dates to the 1930s - 1950s.
