Why purchase this self-framed vintage Grape Nuts cereal embossed tin advertising sign?

Grape Nuts is a breakfast cereal formulated primarily from flour, salt and dried yeast. The cereal shaped as nut-sized kernels was developed in 1897 by C.W. Post, American innovator, pioneer of the prepared foods industry and founder of Postum Cereal Co. in 1895 (currently Post Consumer Brands). After several work-related mental breakdowns, Post began to explore nutrition, and the chemistry of digestion, in hopes of finding a cure for his condition. Grape Nuts was Post's first launch of a cereal product, named for its fruity aroma during manufacturing and its nutty crunch.

Grape Nuts Advertising Campaigns

Grape Nuts was originally marketed as food for the brain, as a natural cereal which could improve health and vitality. Advertising materials such as this vintage sign were provided to general stores free of charge. This circa 1915 single-sided sign is crafted from tin, with a weight of approximately 4 pounds. The 30" x 20" sign is self-framed, which means that the frame and imagery were lithographed and embossed from one piece of metal. This highly sought after advertising relic is an iconic representation of American life and values in the early 20th century.
