Church and Dwight Collectibles

The following bird-related advertising items were noted over the weekend at an antique mall in Niles, Michigan:

Arm and Hammer Poster (Useful Birds of America)

A large (perhaps 18 x 30 inch) educational poster designed to be hung on a wall from a nail. The poster, dated 1917, was printed by the Church and Dwight Company and includes an advertisment for Arm and Hammer Baking Soda. It includes images of 12 species (in alphabetical order): Bluebird, Cardinal, Downy Woodpecker, Flicker, Goldfinch, Indigo Bunting, Killdeer, Nuthatch, Oriole, Red-headed Woodpecker, Sandpiper, and Yellow Warbler. The asking price was $120.

Arm and Hammer Poster

A painting on canvas featuring a Ruffed Grouse (and measuring perhaps 12 x 18 inches) appeared to have been cut from a larger canvas. Artist not indicated. The asking price was $135.

Church and Dwight Painting

A framed painting of a Mallard Duck (measuring perhaps 10 x 12 inches) by G[ustave] Muss-Arnolt and copyright 1905 by Church and Dwight Company. The asking price was $25. Muss-Arnolt (1858-1927) seems most noted for his portraits of sporting dogs, but also painted landscapes and wildlife.
Church and Dwight Painting

A framed painting of a California Mountain Quail (measuring perhaps 10 x 12 inches) by G[ustave] Muss-Arnolt and distributed by the Church and Dwight Company. There was no copyright date on the painting. The asking price was $25.
