his is a circa 1900 lithographed celluloid advertising pin for Horlick's Malted Milk. J&W Horlicks was started in 1873 in Chicago, Illinois by two brothers from Britain. The Horlick's malted milk product was popular with the average citizen, but was also used to nourish babies, the ailing and even United States soldiers during World War II. The nicely colored design of the pin is a dairy maid with her favorite cow.
