Brock Posted August 19, 2013 Report Share Posted August 19, 2013 These things have always piqued my curiosity and I was wondering if anything knew anything else about them? http://www.ebay.com/itm/DESILU-Vintage-COMPLETE-Set-I-Love-Lucy-String-Holders-1950s-AD-Lucille-Ball/281151989167?_trksid=p2045573.m2102&_trkparms=aid%3D555012%26algo%3DPW.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D298%26meid%3D670107309667901170%26pid%3D100034%26prg%3D1079%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D310726195858%26 They seem highly collectable, although their appeal is probably an acquired taste. But they "ad" that always comes with them seems very unusual and not of the era. It is a very strange product to put out there, and even more unusual for Desilu to "copyright" it, along with the use of the "heart" logo which didn't seem to really make a foothold until syndication took off. So, any story on where they originated? Were these from an actual company, or was someone whipping these up in their Van Nuys garage? Are they the genuine article? Has anyone actually seen the ad promoting these pieces in an actual publication? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
