1927 Secrets of the White House by Elizabeth Jaffray or Gebhardt’s Chili Powder Original Vintage Advertisements


Shipping to United States: $4.99

“Secrets of the White House“ is the theme of this 1927 original vintage advertisement for the story by Elizabeth Jaffray who served as housekeeper during the administrations of Presidents Talf, Harding, Wilson and Coolidge. The ad features her picture and the “Cosmopolitan” Magazine to read it.

A BONUS is another ad on the back of the same page for Gebhardt’s Chili Powder and a book by Alice Bradley about cooking. Please see the scans.

Both ads are in black and white and in very good condition. Each is 5.5x11.5 in size and part of the page. They will be sent uncut on the original page they appeared as shown in the additional scans.

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.

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. Please note this is an original, vintage product advertisement and NOT a reproduction.
