Star Ventriloquist Figures Ad

Star ad ventriloquist figures

Wouldn’t it be great to go back and purchase a few of these at this price? I know we can’t do that but we can dream.

Star ad 1950s

I am not sure who made these figures for this company in Texas because I just found this ad in a lot of paper items I just received. They were in Texas and this dates from around 1950.

    Dan, I think they look a lot like William Kirk Brown’s style. I saw his old ads in “The Oracle”, they look like his work to me.

    Not only would it be nice to buy a vent figure for $45, but I would like to buy a gallon of Gas for $.28 again.
