New York. [Anton Reich] / T.C. Weygandt Co., No date. Ca. early 1900-1920.
Sepia toned advertising broadside, sepia illustrations of about 40 different mould designs; double-sided, sheet size 16 1/2 x 24 inches, multiple folds, likely as issued. Prices notated in pencil, some toning and short separations at fold intersections, light staining to centre of left edge, overall in good to very good condition. This sheet features a variety of Christmas themed candy moulds including Santa Claus and a Christmas tree. The verso features a variety of Halloween and Thanksgiving themed chocolate moulds. A separate type-written price list is present, prices from $1.15 to a high of $15 (for the 17 1/2 inch high mould of Santa at right). Prices for several of the moulds have been penciled in on the sheet. This sheet is identical in lay out to other sheets produced by the German firm of Anton Reiche, famous for the quality of their product. In other sheets seen their name appears on the upper left panel and the name of the New York Sole Agent T.C. Weygandt Co. in the upper right panel; here the panels are empty but have the name of the distributor stamped there. An uncommon item; we have been able to locate a few catalogues from the company, but no advertising broadsides such as this. Item #54625
