Shipping to United States: $4.99

“Daintiness is important and this beauty bath makes you sure,” is the theme of this 1940 original vintage advertisement for Lux Toilet Soap. The ad features legendary actress Carol Lombard and her testimony to Lux.

A BONUS is another ad on the opposite side of the same page for Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise. Featured in the ad is Newton Lawn Fete, Bank Teller’s Wife and Bank President’s Wife. There are also recipes for “Melon Shell Salad, “and “Fruit Juice Mayonnaise.

The ads are 7x11 in very good condition with nice color and detail. Please see the 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 scarcer as the supply of vintage paper products continues to decrease. Please note this is an original, vintage product advertisement and NOT a reproduction.
