EARLY DEWAR'S WHISKY POINT OF SALE ADVERTISING CARD














This is an early standing advertising bar card
for Dewar's Scotch Whisky.
We think this one dates to pre WWII rather
than post-war.
It is 2D with an embossed cellulite section
depicting a Highland band Mace-bearer holding
a separate metal and wooden 'mace' in his left hand.
This hand is starting to tear a bit from the weight
of the stick which should be fitted into the hole
on the left side (his right side) but we've left
it out so it doesn't tear anymore.

A lot of the overall decoration looks to be hand
painted i.e. his face, sporran, cloak and ground
etc and also the wording down below does to.
You can certainly feel the difference between the
smooth white background and the red and black
lettering if you rub your finger over it.
Its not a decal so I'm not sure how it was done.

It is attached to a thick cardboard backing with
folding easel so it stands upright.
A little worse for wear - its not inline with
the backing anymore and there are a couple of
splits in the cellulite - one in his busby
and the other near the base.

This is a rare survivor of Brewiana and
overall is not in bad condition considering
what he is made of, how old he is and what he
was made to do (ie sit on a bar).

He stands 31cm high and 18cm across the bottom.
