Why order this Porcelain 1950's Lone Star Stamps Sign?

For several decades during the 20th century, stamp companies operated promotional programs for shoppers in gas stations, supermarkets, department stores, and other retailers. Customers would receive stamps when they purchased items, and they could redeem them for items in the program operators' catalogues. These programs were popular from the 1930's into the 1980's, but just two stamp program operators remain in business today. This porcelain sign advertised one of the programs, Lone Star Stamps. Signs like this one were typically used heavily and often discarded, but this one is still in Excellent condition. This piece weighs about two pounds and measures 7" x 3". This vintage sign would make a great addition to any collection of Americana, but especially a collection focused on the 1950's.

The 1950's was an important decade for several reasons. One of them is that Gen. Dwight David Eisenhower, affectionately known as "Ike," became the only man successfully drafted for a presidential campaign to win the Oval Office in the 20th century. He led the United States at the conclusion of the active conflict in the Korean War, the echoes of which continue to reverberate today. The decade was also important for its scientific advancements. The discovery of the DNA double helix made possible many of the medical advances from which we benefit today, and the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, the first satellite. Collectors can connect with a piece of everyday life from the decade with this porcelain sign.
