This is an old 1917 WW1 Colgate Christmas and Cream of Wheat Advertisement from an old magazine, probably the Women’s Home Companion. The Colgate Christmas advertisement has two ovals at the top. One oval contains the pictures of two women on the homefront opening presents. The other oval shows men dressed in World War 1 uniforms gathered around a soldier holding a Colgate Soldier’s Kit. The other ad features a little girl and boy saying grace over their cream of wheat cereal bowls. Their doll and teddy bear are also bent over at the table saying grace along with the girl and boy. It is an adorable subject matter. The artwork for the advertisement was done by prominent artist Henry F. Wierman.
These ads are really nice but be aware that there is significant damage. There is some discoloration due to age. There is a water stain across the bottom. The edges are rough but would be covered up if matted or framed. There are small tears on the edges and there are two pieces missing at the top. There is wear on the finish especially on the Colgate ad.
There are two sides to this item. The pages are printed back to back.
The pages measure approximately 10 1/4” by 15”.
