Southern Plantation Georgia Cane Syrup Label
$5.75
This Georgia Cane Syrup label went on a 1 pound 2 ounce can and measures 10.85” Wide x 3” High. It was grown, packed, and guaranteed by Cane Growers Co-Operative Association in Cairo, Georgia, who was really the W. B. Roddenbery Company.This was made from pure Georgia ribbon cane and “absolutely nothing else but the juice of Georgia ribbon cane.” The label is just gorgeous and the images don’t really do it justice. It features a Southern Mansion, workers harvesting the sugar cane, and a little log cabin in the woods with a black family making the syrup. I love their slogan, “When Better Syrup is Made. We Will Make It.”   We acquired these labels from a former employee who found them in the “Old Association Warehouse” in Cairo, Ga. Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him anyway. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W. B. Roddenbery Company and he formed the Cane Growers Co-Operative Association. W. H. Roddenbery was a brother-in-law and owned a wholesale grocery store in Cairo. He had Roddenbery package syrup for him and later the W. B. Roddenbery Company packaged syrup for companies like A & P, Blue Plate, and Kraft. He changed the labels to read “packed for” instead of “packed by”. WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
Crabs - 1939 Color Print
$21.50
This antique color portrait features the image of a group of Crabs in a wonderfully colorful undersea scene from the coast of Maine. The print comes from the book The Book Of Fishes, Revised and Enlarged Edition, Presenting the Better Known Species of Food and Game Fishes of the Coastal and Inland Waters of the United States edited by John Oliver La Gorce, Litt.D., D.Sc. Vice President, National Geographic Society. The book was originally copyrighted in 1919. This edition published by the National Geographic Society of Washington, D.C. is from 1939. The colored plates were produced from original paintings by Hashime Murayama and Else Bostelmann. This vintage print features a pair of Green Crabs (foreground) in a sparring match; the Rock Crab, upper left, and a Jonah Crab crouching in a crevice at the right. The scene also has a Sea Potato with its just hatched young swimming about on the left with Irish Moss below. There is also a clump of pink-hearted Hydroids clustered in the right center. The print is professionally matted in a large 11” x 14” baby blue colored matte to setoff the beauty of the fish. Our vintage prints are shipped in a plastic sleeve between cardboard stiffeners to arrive in perfect condition. Keep in mind, an antique print will never be “perfect” like a new print and there are sometimes tiny occasional spots and/or discoloring or aging. However, we only sell mint or almost mint prints and will not sell anything that we would not be proud to hang on our own walls!!!   WE GUARANTEE ALL PRINTS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
Happy Kids Georgia Peanut Butter

This label went on an 8 oz. jar and measures 2.15" Wide x 1.75” High in unused near mint condition. Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W. B. Roddenbery Company. It was 1934 when the company expanded their product line to include peanut butter in 1936 they added pickles. They continued expanding their products adding boiled peanuts, watermelons, and even cigars under a variety of labels. By 1986, the company was producing 45 kinds of pickles, 12 types of syrups, 4 varieties of peanut butter, and millions of boiled peanuts. In 1993 Dallas-based Dean Foods purchased the W. R. Roddenbery Company and about ten years later they closed the Cairo facilities. WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
