GLASS JAR - This is an 8 sided jar made by Planters Canada as a seasonal Christmas 2016 item, it originally held unshelled peanuts. Six of the panels are embossed, two with the "Planters Salted Peanuts 5 cents logo and four with an old style Mr. Peanut just like the vintage 8 sided jar, but this Mr. Peanut is much more detailed, unlike the "ant man" version on the original jar. There are two blank panels which accept labels, one in english (Planters Roasted in Shell Peanuts) and the other in French. The bar code and nutritional information are on a label on the bottom. There is a peanut finial lid that fits snugly with a plastic O ring surrounding the lid rim, and there is a cardboard insert wit an image of peanuts inside the lid. The jar stands about 8-1/4" high (including the lid) with a 5" round opening. A very high quality item - take note Planters USA!

 

VINEYARD MAID WAX PAPER WRAPPER - Exterior wrapper for the rare 1920's Planters fruit and nut bar. No Mr. Peanut. 5-1/2" x 6-3/4".

 

SIGN - Cardboard display, likely from a store or supermarket promotion for National Peanut Month (which is March, by the way). Probably 1960's. 20" x 15".

MENU NUMBER 1 - Circa 1970's paper foldout menu from the short lived cafe in the Cherry Hill Mall in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, which had an ice cream parlor in it. Menu includes ice cream con coctions as well as soups, salads, sandwiches, etc. 8" x 7-1/2" when folded.

 

CHOCOLATE RAISINS BAG - Clear cellophane bags for an unusual chocolate covered raisins product. Red/white graphics. Also unusual is the cardboard perforated header attached to the bag top for display on a rack. An ad on the front for the Famous Men paint book or Stamp Album would date this bag to the 1930's.

 

MR. PEANUT - Looks to be an unusual image of Mr. Peanut, possibly from the 1920's. 6-1/2" x 8-1/2", may have been cut down from a box?

 

MENU NUMBER 2 - Another menu for Mr. Peanut's Ice Cream. It stands 14' high and opens into a tri-fold menu. A small Mr. Peanut image appears three times on the menu.

MENU NUMBER 3 - An additional item from the same store as above, with this being a check list of ingredients for your salad order.
