For sale is an original black and white Jell-O advertisement which has been framed in a very dark brown wooden frame with glass insert. The frame measures just slightly larger than 7 inches by 5 inches.

The artist for the illustration in this ad is Linn Ball, who was the same artist for the color version of this illustration used on the cover of the 1925 Jell-O Recipe booklet. The bottom of the ad reads "Reprinted by permission of John Martin's Book Child's Magazine." It further shows the company name as "The Jell-O Company, Inc. Le Roy, N.Y., Bridgeburg, Ont." The Jell-O Company had originally been owned by Genesee Pure Food Co. and became The Jell-O Company on November 5, 1923...on December 31, 1925 the company was sold to Postum. Within this ad it states the flavors offered are Strawberry, Raspberry, Lemon, Orange, Cherry and Chocolate. Yes, chocolate Jell-O, which was discontinued in 1927. The body of the ad is a poem which concludes:

"Be sure the Jell-O's never out
But ready on the shelf,
Then you'll not mind the visit of
The fairy queen hereself."

There is a faint fold on the upper right hand corner of the ad and there is some paper missing on the left edge. The wooden frame is missing some finish exposing lighter wood. The ad itself has yellowed somewhat with age. It is ready to hang. All in all, a wonderful antique decoration for your kitchen!

Please see photos for additional condition details and don't hesitate to ask questions. Thanks very much for looking!
