Age of Holsum Bread poster?

notitfortatOctober 8, 2010

Anyone have any info about this poster? I got it today and love it more every time I look at it. I am thinking about trying to get it professionally restored and framed. Anyone know what the value as is vs. restored might be? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

If only you knew the price of a loaf of bread associated with this poster. The price could be used to bracket a time period.

Holsum was a baking collective, founded in the early 1900s. You joined the collective, met the standards and got the brand name advertising and the right to use the name and the packaging.

Judging from the artwork - the "muscular art deco" and the Uncle Sam glowering out over the top, I'd say 1940s.
