Clean cardboard countertop sign featuring Eddie Cantor, and advertising Ipana Toothpaste, later known for its cartoon mascot Bucky ("Brusha brusha brusha").  Manufactured by Bristol-Myers, the sign utilizes WAY TOO MANY ADVERTISING TAGLINES to promote its product, creating a busy piece.  Also creating a creepy piece, as Cantor's enormous, piercing eyes certainly do not scream "brush your teeth" to this writer.  Measuring 12 1/2" x 18", well-worn around the edges with a few stray surface abrasions, including one large one at the bottom-right corner, and a few light gouges.  Easel-backed reverse is intact, a long-ago price sticker affixed to the top edge.
