Awesome Jell-O Box Giant Size Replica Box -Promotion or Pop Art Masterpiece?
I know what your thinkin' when you look at that first photo folks; Where did this guy get that miniature Coke can? -Right?………Well, guess what? That's a regular size Coke can sitting in front of a:
Rare as it gets, More than Tremendously Cool, Huge as Hell 26" X 21 1/2" X 8" Jello-O Promotional Replica Box!!!!
I don't know the story behind this box; I purchased it at an estate sale, but I fell in love with it instantly. I'm sure it was some sort of Store Promotion originally, but it opens up with a hinged lid for storage, so it may have been intended as a prize of some kind rather than as a display item (it would have taken up to much valuable retail space for that). All I can tell you for sure is that it looks fantastic sitting on top of my refrigerator. It is such an Iconic package that this mammoth sized model takes on a sort of Pop Art Whimsey that Completely Trumps Warhol's Campbell Soup Cans
I haven't been able to find any information about, or evidence of, any other of these on the Internet, so this may be your one and only shot to own this Ultimate Homage to Consumerism, to America's Love Affair with Processed Foods and to the Complete Disposability of Pop Culture in General!!! You may be thinking that it's too big and that you don't have room to display it, but remember: There's always room ffff…………..Nope! Can't do it! It's just too lame……..and speaking of completely beat slogans; if I hear one more person say "What happens in Vegas……." again before I die I'm going to have a Total Recall style schizoid embolism!!!!!!!
This box is in Excellent Overall Condition, with some slight creasing here and there, but nothing that detracts from its appeal or distracts from its impact. In order to reduce wear and tear (some parts of the box are glued together) I will not disassemble this piece for shipping, so the box will be a bit large and will require that I use FedEx rather than U.S.P.S.. FedEx's online quote for the estimated size and weight of this package to the farthest destination in the contiguous 48 states of Southern California is $71.00, but the actual cost will be determined by buyer's location (and it could end up being a third of that) -so please contact me for a shipping estimate to your location………and PLEASE wait for my invoice with exact shipping costs before you pay
And due to shipping costs there will be allowing No Returns and No International buyers. Please look at the pictures and ask questions before you bid
