In 1869, fruit merchant Joseph Campbell and icebox manufacturer Abraham Anderson started the Anderson & Campbell Preserve Company in Camden, New Jersey. By 1877, the partners realized each had different visions for the company. Joseph Campbell bought Anderson's share and expanded the business to include ketchup, salad dressing, mustard, and other sauces. Ready-to-serve Beefsteak Tomato Soup became a Campbell's best seller. In 1894, Joseph Campbell retired and Arthur Dorrance took over as company president. Three years later, soup history was made when Arthur Dorrance reluntly hired his nephew John Dorrance. Soups were inexpensive to make but very expensive to ship. Dorrance realized that if he could remove soup's heaviest ingredient water, he could create a formula for condensed soup and slash the price of soup from $.30 to $.10 per can. By 1922, soup was such an integral part of the company presence in America, that Campbell's formally accepted Soup into its name.
In colors that include red, yellow, blue and brown with gold trim both front and back feature those chubby cheeked Campbell Soup Kids in their classic M'm Good, eating soup pose.
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites it measures 4 1/2 inches tall, 5 inches wide and 4 3/4 inches deep.
I have two of these bowls in stock. Price quoted is for each one ordered.
An addition to any Campbell's Soup Collection.
