“The prime time of the Scottie dog collectible was from the 1920s to the ’50s, thanks to successful advertising campaigns for Texaco, with their two Scottie dogs, and “Black & White Scotch Whisky” magazine ads from the ’40s,” writes Sandy Erdman in the Post-Bulletin of Rochester, Minnesota (article no longer there). “Scottie candy containers, glass powder jars with Scotties sitting on the lids, cigarette boxes and figurines are some of the many Scottie dog collectible items available. They were easily found in dime stores in their prime.”
And here’s something you wouldn’t find any more, a Scottie Dog cigarette holder. Poor creature must have gotten that cow-like coat colouring from all the smoking.
