Today I have a vintage Nestle advertisement circa 1954 that came from the January edition of a publication called the Woman’s Journal.
There’s a few variations of the Woman’s Journal magazine but this vintage Nestle advertisement came from the British version that was published from 1927 to 2001. The magazine was a mix of contemporary fiction, fashion and stories about the Royal family. Indeed this particular issue has a picture of Patricia Knatchbull, the 2nd Countess Mountbatten of Burma, on the front cover.
This is a scan of the original advert:
This is my re-touched version:
This is the illustration of the family at the stove:
- Henri Nestlé (1814-1890) was a German-born Swiss confectioner who developed a breakthrough infant food in 1867
- Nestlé was formed in 1905 by the merger of the Anglo-Swiss Milk Company, established in 1866 by brothers George and Charles Page and the company Henri Nestlé founded.
Nestle UK have a business archive held in York where works of art and 100-year-old chocolates are preserved in climate and humidity controlled conditions.
I found a Nestlé Milky Bar montage on YouTube that really takes me back to when I was a child.
I’ll be back with another vintage gem in my next post!
