Vintage Children’s Boy 1900 to 1920 Marx Haas Plaid Knickers In Box

posted in: Antiques News | 0

Made by Marx and Haas Clothing Co., St. Louis, MO,

During the early 1900’s until the 1920’s, clothiers selling Marx menswear gave, as a gift,  knickers to good customers after they had a baby boy.  It was a way of saying thank you for being a loyal customer as well as congratulations on a birth of a son. The box above is dated 1916 and contains a darling pair of wool plaid  knickers to be worn at the age of 1.

Printed inside the bottom of the box “More Than A Million Men Wear MarxMade Clothes”.  Not only a gift to a new little boy, but a great promotional for the Marx Haas Co.
