flea friday: vintage Hungarian cheese labels

I thought it'd be a good time to show you my vintage Hungarian cheese label collection, while I'm a bit unmotivated about browsing in the thrifts due to the soaring temperatures we are having here.

These cheese labels were an impulse buy from Ebay a few years ago. I think they cost me seven pounds with postage, and I only had to very briefly battle with one more bidder for them... I don't look for thrifty stuff on Ebay anymore, but for a short period of time all those years ago I used to hunt for vintage paper ephemera on there.

I reckon the trigger for my bidding was the childhood nostalgia that rose up in me as soon as I spotted a couple of cheese brands in the batch that used to be part of my school lunches and elevenses for years as a kid.

And the ones that are older than me were just so beautiful - my parents and grandparents surely remember them. Just love their screenprinted colours and the lettering.

Before we moved countries, I had these old labels arranged and framed up in a big steel A3 picture frame. Right now they live in an envelope. After pulling them out for this post I thought I really ought to get them framed again - they'd happily hang in the kitchen and become best mates with our vintage clock for sure...

  1. PLEASE these are gorgeous, hang them up again! WOW! I've never seen such beautiful food wrappers before. Love them.

  2. Definitely worth framing - such great graphic designs and colors.

  3. little art food wrappers!
    yes, you should hang them again!
    it's a pitty to keep them in the envelope :)

  4. They are great! I think framing would be great.

  5. Azta! Hát ez komoly "score"... jó részét nem is ismerem amúgy, pedig igazán nem vagyok mai gyerek. :D De ezek a címkék vajon nem is voltak használva? :)

    ági / iiiinspired

    1. szia! arra gondoltam hogy lehetséges hogy némelyeket ilyen címkével csak exportra gyártották...köszi a kommentet!

  6. szia! áhá, igen, lehetséges... különösen, hogy furcsa volt az ismerteken is az angol-német felirat. :) :)

    szép hétvégét,
