Just got this from a friend, but I won't have it in my hands until this weekend. I tried to find out some info on it but so far can't find a thing. It's NOS porcelain, with one tiny chip on one corner. Did they actually make these? This came out of a bulk oiler facility and that's all I know about it. Any input would be much appreciated, thanks. Les

Scary thing is a few years ago I was at a auction where they listed a NOS Pepsi one and it had identical bends and it looked awesome but we found out it was painted decaled and heavy clearcoated The bends look to crisp for what I remember that era door pushes but I hope I'm wrong


Thanks

He is a friend that we have traded and bought from one another for years, so he would know I hope. I did get some info that these are common in Canada, which is good because I'm not that deep into it. Can't wait to hold it in my hands then we'll know who owns it him or me. Ha!

Thanks for the input. Les

Is there a way I can tell if it's a repro?

It's my understanding that these are a fantasy door push as White Rose never used them. I also agree the bends are too sharp to be correct for the 1940's. Here's hoping it's an original as it would be fantastic to know they exist.

Sorry its a fantasy door push, I have seen them in other oil company colors/logos including Red Indian and Supertest.

Found this on epay, it was small and tried to enlarge it but it is pretty bad. It also does not have grommets.

It might be white rose flour or corn meal.

Fake, fantasy, new, etc. You can buy a wide variety of this style on Ebay and the net for around $75.00

I don't know for sure one way or the other as the subject one looks a lot more legit than the other obvious trash. Its a shame there is so much bull ***** out there. Would make sense for flour -country store. Some other branded originals would have "Come Again" on the back side.
