  • Made in: USA
  • Vintage:  1953
  • Details:  This is a very old advertisement from Lifesavers candy.  It ran on the Life Magazine June 22, 1953 issue, advertising their Pep O Mint candy.  It was very appropriate for the month of June with the Lifesavers roll posing as a lifeguard, sitting in the life guard chair under a very bright yellow and red striped umbrella.  In another “advertising twist of genius”, they showed the actual round candies with the hole in the middle, like floating swim-rings or “life savers”, hung around the lifeguard chair.  The caption reads: “For a breath-taking rescue”.  On the bottom it reads: “The candy with the hole… still only 5 cents”.  This is an original page from the magazine, not a print, the paper has yellowed with time but the colors remain bright.  It is framed with an off-the-rack Michael’s frame simulating rough wood that has been painted blue, makes a very nice combination with the blue chair and blue water.  This is great as a collector’s item, framed and hung in a coastal home, a sun room, pool house or even man-cave or bar.  It is a rare find we searched and found all sellers are out of stock of this specific ad.     
  • Material:  Paper
  • Dimensions:   16.5 Long, 13.5 Wide and 0.75 inch Deep
  • Condition:  Vintage – Used.  Good Vintage Condition.  This is an original page from a magazine, the paper has yellowed with time.  The yellowing is darker than it shows on the pictures due to lighting, the very first picture shows the actual color best.  There’s a stain, perhaps from the staple that held the magazine together, on the upper left side.  The frame is much newer, it is in good condition, a couple of spots with minor paint loss.  PLEASE SEE PICTURES BEFORE PURCHASING.   Please remember these are VINTAGE and ANTIQUE items.  Every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections.  Refunds will not be given unless there’s gross misrepresentation of condition.
