Random Objects | angry tiger label


This is not a happy tiger - what else can I say?  He's a very old label, part of a package. Apparently the designer, way back then, thought that this unhappy tiger would be the perfect image to sell the product!  I think this was probably printed around the turn of the century judging by the printing technique.

Hey! That tiger looks like me on a Monday morning before I've had my coffee. ;-)

Swastikas appear in vintage design all over the world and are nothing to be alarmed at. You even find swastikas on 500 year old native american bead work.
