1937 Parke Davis Vitamin Products Store Display
Beautiful Parke-Davis Standardized Vitamin Products metal and glass store display Display features 10 different vitamin products manufactured and distributed by the Parke, Davis & Co., Detroit Michigan., U.S.A. Displays consists of a navy blue metal frame with silver metal frame holding the front glass (rolled edges - glass doesn't not appear to be removable.) Clearly marked "COPYRIGHT 1937 BY PARKE, DAVIS & CO. MADE IN U.S.A." and "PROPERY OF PARKE, DAVIS & CO." Open back likely used for new old stock storage. Display measures 21" (H) X 14 7/8" (W) X 10" (D).
Display is in very good condition overall. Glass is original and intact. Some moisture staining and mildew marks along with some warping on the paper vitamin boxes but still displays well. Some surface rusting on the base and corners of the metal sides. The base says "KNOW YOUR VITAMIND - KNOW YOUR MAKER" which has some surface rust that makes it harder to read but still very legible. Most of the surface rust near the base of the display (consistent with storage - possibly sat on a concrete or damp floor). But the surface rust doesn't detract from the overall beauty. No serious areas of damage other than cosmetic issues noted and seen in pictures. Nice overall patina and the displays shows very well.
