Here’s a 48″ original SSP 1940 Mrs. Tuckers’ Shorting out of Sherman, Texas in a Porcelain Sign in very good condition.
I have two other Mrs. Tuckers Shorting Porcelain Sign.
History of Mrs. Tucker Shortening:
Mrs. Tucker’s shortening was first placed on the market in 1913 when kitchen work was mostly drudgery; and, during the last quarter of a century, this ever-improved shortening has played a large part in helping this section create a better market for its products, and in making cooking more certain and enjoyable.
Mrs. Tucker’s shortening was the first to carry on it containers “Made Exclusively From Choice Cotton Seed Oil,” and her policy of making only a pure, vegetable product has meant much to digestion and health in the Southwest. When housewives showed a preference for shortening in cartons of economy, Mrs. Tucker pioneered and developed air-tight inner seals of cellophane, which has made her product known as the “Shortening with the Silver Lining.”
