Vintage White Castle Native American Indian Headdress for Kids or Adults

Description

These politically incorrect Indian Chief Headdresses were made as a give-away advertisement for the White Castle Hamburger restaurants in the mid-20th century. We know that they were offered before 1963, because there is no zip code in the address.

We love the earth tone coloring of the feathers and the bead-printed bands. But the extra-special feature is that these can be adapted for children or adults to wear!

On the front it reads:

ME BIG CHIEF! - BUY ONLY
White Castle
ALL-BEEF HAMBURGERS

On the back are the instructions for sizing for an adult or a child to wear. The bottom band is detachable and the pre-punched slots make it easy to size correctly for your head.

The measurements before you assemble the headdress are 15 inches wide by 6-5/8 inches high Made from pliable, but sturdy cardstock, these are in superb condition for their age, showing only slight discoloration on the back, as only a true vintage item would age.

The green printing on the back indicates that these were produced by the Paperlynen Company of Columbus, Ohio.

This product is not Native American Indian produced, a Native American Indian product or the product of a particular Native American Indian, Native American Indian Tribe or Native American Indian Arts and Crafts Organization.
