Description

Proof chromolithographic print probably intended for an advertisement for Creamoata breakfast cereal, shows a smiling dark-haired boy eating a bowl of steaming porridge.

Date is uncertain. The image differs from the illustrative Sergeant Dan character created in 1915. And Dan is shown as dark-haired, in contrast to the image most commonly seen in the 1930s. Like other 1930s images, the image is realistic, but appears an older style than 1930s.

Quantity: 1 colour art print(s).

Physical Description: Chromolithograph proof print, on sheet approximately 260 x 260 mm.

Provenance: Previously part of the Ferrymead Printing Society's collection, as shown by stamp on verso.
