Vintage Robertson's Golden Shred Advertising Egg Cup Featuring Golliwog Doll For Sale
Offered here for your offerding review is this cute little vintage Robertson's Golden Shred advertising egg cup featuring the likeness of a loveable golliwog doll! Golliwogs first gained popularity back in 1895 with therelease of Florence Kate Upton's classic childhood story book "The Adventures Of Two Dutch Dolls and A Golliwogg." She never copyrighted the character so many companies went on to use the golly in their advertising and children's ware. Golden Shred refers to their marmalade product still being made today, albeit with a more benign or politically correct mascot--currently a teddy bear.
This vintage egg cup stands about 2 1/2" tall and is made from hard plastic. Airbrushing is used to paint the details of the Golly's features. It's a great little piece thatis not often found, and might appeal to collectors of black Americana, advertising, kitchen collectibles, or golliwog dolls. The condition is very good, with a bit of wear to the painted details. There are tiny and minor scratches that can be observed against theblack plastic, especially on the back and right above the left eye on the rim of the opening.
I have used several other items of similar interest as props in my photographs. They are not included here. However, the antique child's golliwog tea set seen in the last picture is available in a separate listing. Please take a look, keeping in mind that I would be happy to combine shipping!
