SCOTCH BRAND QUAKER OATS BOX
This is a wonderful, very vintage Quaker Oats cylindrical cereal box from the old days, when this particular line of rolled oats was called the Scotch Brand. The box is 9-1/2 tall and 5-3/8 in diameter, and contained 2 lbs 10 oz of cereal. We feel this box is one of the rarer Scotch Brand boxes, because weve never run across the words New... and Now... on any of the other Scotch Brand boxes weve seen. Its apparently from the time just after the company began offering its quick cooking oats - the legends on the box read: New Quick Cooking Style and Now Cooks In One Minute. The box was originally opened by cutting through the paper at the lower edge of the lid, at least ¾ of the way around the box, and the line of that cut has left the box and label pretty well intact. The paper label around the rear ¼ of the box is partly torn off below the cut line, where the top of the box may have originally been folded back using the label as a hinge (like my mother used to do!), and then later torn off we dont know. The general condition of the box and label is very good there are no additional tears in the label; the box is uncut and undented; the top and bottom are still perfectly flat; the box is still firm and sound. The label is essentially whole, with good color on both the background, the artwork and the figure of the Scotsman on the front of the box. There is some spotting on the lid, and in several places on the label, but as we said, the boxs overall condition is very good. . So, Yum! Lets have breakfast!
