Thursday Treasures #1

Mom was going through a DVD of vintage ephemera she bought and came across these awseome old vintage labels. There are A LOT of them with all different doggies and (some kitties too) so we are going to share a few each week.

This week we salute the scotties and share a little story. Mom remembers these two little black and white scotties from the Black & White Whiskey bottles because her Mom had a little brooch with them on and on that brooch hung two more little Scotties which actually came off a bottle of Black & White Whiskey. Seems way way back in the day when you bought a bottle of Black & White whiskey - around the top was a little plastic pair of black and white Scotties. Here is a picture mom found of the brooch - it was made from celluloid plastic in the 1930's. They actually have one for sale here at Rubylane. Mom wonders what happened to the little Scottie brooch - maybe Aunty/Sis back in Australia still has it somewhere?
