Alox Oddity


Recommended Posts

Shoe laces. No biggie.

"Old Cobbler" brand. Sure, cobblers make shoes.

But tell me those are something other than marbles in the background on the label.


Made in Japan, for the Alox Mfg. Co., St. Louis 14, MO.

The 14 after the St. Louis was the Postal Zone, used by the post office between 1943 and 1963.

don't know. had 'em awhile before I noticed the marbles.

best guess is they were a ride-along with something like a vintage button lot. whenever I got them, I put them aside and forgot about them.

found 'em again in my attic and then started noticing the little details. :-)
