Listing Detail Tabs

This is a neat and I daresay extremely rare piece of advertising for Auckland condiment maker Whittome Stevenson & Co. It's a rather thick card with a see-through raspberry cordial bottle that has red sand inside, that flows like a liquid when you invert the card.

Not sure on an exact age but it looks like it may be commemorating some UK Arctic achievement? Or possibly Antarctic, although there are no Eskimos there, and no penguins in the Arctic. Go figure. Guessing around 1920s?

It's about the size of a standard postcard, but much thicker. In overall good condition for its age and for what it is, the sand still flows well and the card doesn't "leak". See photos for detail on condition.

Just look at that expression on the lady's face... priceless :-)
