Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a very early circa 1900 celluloid advertising pin for Cat's Paw Heels, a product of the Foster Rubber Company of Baltimore, Maryland. Around since 1904, Cat's Paw was a hugely popular product with a distinctive icon forged by German graphic designer Lucian Bernhard. Once an American super-brand, was recently revived in the public memory with the discovery on the island of Nikoumaroro of a buried shoe with a Cat's Paw Heel: the shoe is believed to have belonged to Amelia Earhart. The pin is in red, yellow and black celluloid and shaped like the Cat's Paw heel itself.
