Offering a yellow, red, and white vintage Red Dot potato chip can from around 1950, featuring the company mascot Ta-To the Clown. The can is marked One Full Pound.

In 1948 Red Dot Foods decided to sell only snack foods they themselves manufactured. At first the company lost money, but the spread of supermarkets and a growing demand for snacks turned the company into a multimillion-dollar business.

This piece is spectacular as a stand alone show piece, or as a fun way to house dry goods on your kitchen counter. What a fun way to grab a cookie!

There is a 1/2 inch chip in the yellow paint at the O in POTATO, and several small dings and scratches all around. But take one step back and all the eye sees is nostalgic 1950s yellow sunshine from a bygone era of wholesome fun.

The can measures 11 1/4 inches tall x 7 1/2 inches across.

Guaranteed vintage & authentic. Not a reproduction. Satisfaction guaranteed.
