Here’s a 14×40 org. SSP 1930 Agency Whitmans’ Chocolate Collection Porcelain Sign in very good condition, most are all damaged or faded. It has some missing porcelain, but it shows well!
Whitman’s confections have been produced for over 175 years. Originally a “confectionery and fruiterer shoppe” set up in 1842 by 19-year-old, Stephen F. Whitman on the Philadelphia waterfront, Whitman’s first became popular with traveling sailors and their wives. They would often bring imported fruits, nuts, and cocoa which were obtained during their voyages to Mr. Whitman so that he could make the popular European confections people craved in that era. Before long, Whitman’s chocolates were popular throughout the northeastern United States.
