[no place of publication stated]: [no publisher stated] [no date stated]. First Edition. 8 1/4 x 11 inches (board dimensions) An original high gloss photographic print of a generic valentines candy box mounted on board that has been over-painted with some new details and highlights resulting in a camera-ready image. Likely used as a newspaper advertisement or catalog illustration. In very good original condition with minor blemishes and pinholes in the margins. It would look great framed. Very Good. [28818]


We were unable to find much about the F.H. Roberts Co. NOT the Japanese candy manufacturer in business today, F. H. Roberts & Co. was apparently started in the first decade of the 20th century, and was sold by the founder around 1960. We found an advertisement for their candies in Vanity Fair in 1928 showing them at 128 Cross St. in Boston, MA. This advertisement strikes us as far less fancy than that period's work, so perhaps later (the 1940s/50s?). We obtained this original art with other candy box art from Boston and Cambridge area companies and so feel confident attributing it to F.H. Roberts Co.
