There’s nothing glamorous about Monday mornings. I guess if Mondays mean starting your trek through the Himalayas or the launch of your new film’s press junket – well that might be different. But for the rest of us, Mondays don’t feel so much like the start of something as they feel like an end… with an hour-long commute. And there’s only one thing that gets us through: coffee.
Released in 2013, this reproduction from a 1923 Oberpfaffendorfer advertisement is part of a rare edition of giclée prints. Each print carries an official Curio & Co. stamp and comes with an embossed Certificate of Authenticity. For more information about product materials, click here.

Founded in the early 1900s, Oberpfaffendorfer is a family-run company manufacturing packaged foods. With roots in German-speaking Switzerland, the company is as known for its family loyalty as it is for its packaged “comfort food.” Oberpfaffendorfer fully embraced the frozen food market in the 1950s, and some of its popular products include Neptune Nibblets and its Croquettes. The company slogan, “We’re a mouthful!” plays on the company’s difficult-to-pronounce name, as well as its reputation for hearty food.

Taking a break from the big show
Summer is upon us, and for most of us that means a trip to San Diego for Comic-Con. However, for the first time since 2010, the Curio & Co. staff will be taking a break from the mega convention.
But don’t worry: We won’t just be lolling around the beach. Instead, we’ll be hard at work in the archives preparing some treasures for release from the vault.
So whether you’re headed to San Diego or will just be following all the Comic-Con antics online – Have a great show!
(And then come back and tell us all about it.)
