Miller Engineering Planters Peanuts Sign
An Italian immigrant named Amedeo Obici, founder of
Planters, was born in 1876 in the small town of
Oderzo, near Venice, Italy. He came to America, first
to Brooklyn then to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He
opened his own fruit stand and invested in a peanut
roaster. Here he linked his life's fortune with the peanut.
Two years later, the firm was incorporated as
Planters Nut and Chocolate Company. Planter's
mascot, Mr. Peanut, is such a nut! Everybody's just
crazy about him! Since his introduction in 1916, to
help advertise the sales of the country's first roasted
peanut company, Mr. Peanut has become one of the
nation's best-known advertising characters. Based on
the original drawing of a 13-year-old boy, the
ever-dapper Mr. Peanut eventually added a top hat,
white spats, ebony cane, and monocle to his unique
ensemble. Limited edition sign!

Size: 2.0 wide x 2.5" tall Suitable for N or HO scale.
