Old Sleepy Eye Flour, Buster Brown Advertising FanBy

Old Sleepy Eye Flour, Buster Brown Advertising Fan

Here's an unusual combination on a cardboard fan: Sleepy Eye Flour on the front, Buster Brown and Old Sleepy Eye on the reverse. Of course, no old counterpart to this piece exists; it is a fantasy item created by the marketing department of a reproduction wholesaler.

The fan is 9 inches in diameter, stiff cardboard, stapled to a wood handle. The front side is full color but very faded; the reverse is printed in black. Both sides have been treated to simulate age and wear. These wholesale for under $5 each.
