Shown here is a collection of 19 original African-American beauty product labels from the 1930s and 40s. The labels come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They’re ALL IN MINT CONDITION. The colors are fresh and bright as if they were just printed.
Today, these labels would be considered prejudicial and stereotypical, but in their day these were popular products, like Sweet Georgia Brown, aimed at a specific audience. However, because of their historical significance, these are a collector's dream and worth every penny due to their near-perfect condition.
