Borden Creamer - Sugar Bowls - Salt & Pepper Shakers
Borden Company Vintage Advertising Elsie and Elmer The Bull Creamer, Sugar Bowl and Salt and Pepper Shakers
This is a hard to find Vintage set of Borden's Elsie and Elmer the cow Sugar Bowl, Creamer and Salt and Pepper Shakers. To the best of my knowledge these were produced in the 50's and 60's for the Borden Company. We purchased the creamer and sugar bowl from a woman whose husband worked for Borden and was told that Borden employees received these items that were marked with Borden Company. All others produced and marketed to the general public were not marked. Both the creamer and sugar bowl have these markings. Both are the glazed version and in excellent condition. The Salt and Pepper Shakers were purchased later. Elmer is in excellent condition but Elsie has a couple of problems. As you can see from the photos she has damage to the front of the shaker where her name is and a small nick on her right ear. You can tell that she was used a lot unlike Elmer who looks like he was never used. The Borden Company was a large producer of food and beverage products and was located in Columbus, Ohio. This is a great set of Borden advertising items and would make a wonderful addition to your advertising, creamer, sugar bowl, and shaker collection. Don't be fooled by all the small light weight reproductions out there, these are the real deal.
