It says: "Jello costs so little that it may be found in the most unpretentious homes of the old plantation. It is delicious enough to be accepted by those at the "Big House" who have cultivated good living as a fine art"

mmmhm :/

These are my moms, I am doubtful they are worth anything.... I could be wrong. I just think they are cool. She just hangs them on the wall, sans frames. Hopefully she'll get some frames or something for them to protect them to some degree. The artists name is Lucile Patterson Marsh, I could find very very little on her. I like the August one.

those are fantastic! i love the illustrations of the children (and the bear!?) but the jello creations are a bit distressing.

lol, i saw your icon and then thought *i should tell her to post these in vintage_ads.... guess you beat me at it :P

and i love them. the little jello girl looks a lot like ivory did when she was little. :)
Those are wonderful! If I saw any of those in an antique store, I'd buy them and hang them in my kitchen.
They've certainly come a long way in making their language more palatable. I believe that Jell-O is now referred to as "soft-set" and "set" rather than "congealed" and "hardened." Little things mean so much. Nonetheless, I have a perverse desire to make that Christmas pudding. Have you noticed that Lemon is always the flavor they try to pass off as savory? It's always the basis of the most demented recipes.

But why was I never informed of the existence of Chocolate Jell-O? What happened to it?
Was it one of the ice cream mixes, maybe? I love the political correctness in the one near the end. Jell-O: it just tastes better when you make small black children prepare and serve it. Spares your valuable sitting-in-wicker-chair-time, too!
You could even think of it like she is saying to herself... "Aren't I such a charitable person exposing these poor children to my fantastically jello filled life."

It was a almost innocent yet still despicable picture that I am really surprised wasn't more taboo. Appherently not because of the ad earlier with the guy serving the malt o meal.

I am almost surprised that these companies are still in business.
