This is a pair of Old Dutch add glass I plan on using in a Wayne 60. This is my first attempt at a picture and it looks like it worked! Bill Fortune

Great Old Dutch stuff, guys! I have never seen that tape measure before, I'll have to start looking for one.


Shown here are a variety of pencils given away by different Old Dutch stations. Some just have words, others show the windmill logo.

This is a unique thermometer, to say the least. Even though it is missing one of the "handles" it is still a neat piece. There is also ships wheel barometer, but I currently know of only one of them.

One of the more readily available Old Dutch collectibles are the water glasses given out. There are three variations that I know of, two are pictured here. I apologize for the poor picture quality on this one.

Here are several different Old Dutch matchbooks. Notice that the can pictured on one of them matches the quart identically.

Western Michigan was the destination point for large numbers of Dutch immigrants in the late 1800s. Undoubtedly the name of company stems from this fact and these unique promotional items shaped as wooden shoes reflects the Dutch influence as well. I believe these to be pipe rests or something off that nature, please feel free to correct me on that one. Also, you'll see that one of the matchbooks is different than the ones previously posted.

Shown here are two different newspaper ads. The top one is a recent ebay purchase for us. The bottom one is in the Larry Robertson collection.
