1947 Lifehuoy Health Soap or Libbey Heat-Treated Tumblers Original Advertisement


Shipping to United States: $4.99

“The shock of that whisper ruined my evening,” is the theme of this 1947 original vintage ad for Lifebuoy Health Soap. The ad features a drawing about the embarrassment of a person’s body odor in a movie theatre. Please see the scan.

A BONUS is another ad on the opposite side of the same page for Libbey Heat-Treated Tumblers. The ad features a couple of kids on chairs at an old soda fountain. These tumblers would not break like a normal tumbler.. Please see the scan.

The ads are 5.5x14. They are in good to very good condition with some edge aging and will be sent uncut on the original page they appeared. Please see the additional scan for how they ad looks on the original page.

REMEMBER: these are NOT 2 separate items but the front and back of a SINGLE page. They are both being listed because of possible multiple interests or topics. They are both too nice for the buyer not to know about them.

Vintage advertisements and articles are becoming more and more collectible for their nostalgia look and unique eye-appeal. They also are suitable for framing and are becoming more scarce as the supply of vintage paper products continues to decrease.
