Magazine, Handbill, AND NEWSPAPER ADS
for Viquesney's Miniature Doughboy
Viquesney targeted ex-servicemen in magazines like American Legion Weekly (later Monthly), both as potential customers and as sales agents. Below are some representative ads for the rather common 12" and rare 6" desktop Doughboy statuettes (which were really only 11.5" and 5.75" tall, respectively).
