Object Detail

Anchor butter wrapper. Plain sheet of paper measuring 25.6 x 19 cm with red and blue label. There are basically four sections to this label. The main central section bears the following text in red and blue: " SALTED Anchor NEW ZEALAND PURE CREAMERY BUTTER 1 lb NET(454g)" Three small anchors accompany this text.The same text is repeated twice - but with only one anchor. A small white adhesive label on wrapper reads: "Pacific Islands Taiwan Caribbean". The butter was probably exported to here. The following text is at one end (upside down when viewed flat): "EXPORTED BY NEW ZEALAND DAIRY BOARD WELLINGTON NEW ZEALAND". Another small adhesive label reads: "AOI". Was wrapped around a block of wood and used as a display prop emulating a block of butter. In fair condition - numerous creases where paper was folded around block. Also discolouration has occured where paper has been exposed to light. One or two remnant traces of sellotape evident. Unknown maker.
