original ww2 paper british dr carrot propaganda poster

original ww2 paper british dr carrot propaganda poster

An original 23 x16" British paper propaganda poster featuring Dr. Carrot.

In 1941 " the British Ministry of Food launched a Dig For Victory Campaign which introduced the cartoons ”Dr. Carrot” and “Potato Pete”, to get people to eat more of the vegetables (bread and vegetables were never on the ration during the war). Advertisements encouraged families to start “Victory Gardens” and to try new recipes using surplus foods as substitutes for those less available. Carrots were promoted as a sweetener in desserts in the absence of sugar, which was rationed to eight ounces per adult per week. The Ministry’s “War Cookery Leaflet 4? was filled with recipes for carrot pudding, carrot cake, carrot marmalade and carrot flan. Concoctions like “Carrolade” made from rutabagas and carrots emerged from other similar sources.
This poster is unusual in that it is more leaning towards defence rather than cooking.

It has been partially glued to a card backing and is folded in 4.
There is some damage to the bottom right hand corner and it has faded a bit.
Still a very rare poster that really needs framing..

A very unusual fascinating 4 page fac-smile of the original Warrant to Execute Mary, Queen of Scots by Queen Elizabeth Ist in 1587.
We thinks this copy was made in the late 1800s. It is accuarate in every detail and although quite worn ( which adds to its character) it would look superb framed.
A really interesting copy of an invaluable historical document

c1920's mohair lion cub possibly steiffc1920's mohair lion cub possibly steiff

I know very little about soft toys so any advice is most welcome.
I have been led to believe that this little fellow dates from around the 1920's. He is made from mohair and it feels like he is stuffed with straw but i cant be certain. His head also rotates through 36 degrees.
Although there is no famous ear stud, it has been suggested that this is an early Steiff but i have not been able to confirm this.
Either way he is an adorable little lion cub with glass eyes and t shaped stitched nose.
There are no tears or splits but his fur is quite worn in places.
He is for sale and the the price could either be extremely cheap in which case well done on spotting a bargain , or expensive ( but worth it to give him a new loving home)
dimensions: 9" high and 12" long, not including his tail
