Heinz "Pickled Products" Salesman Kit, circa 1918

Summary

With many varieties of pickles and condiments that the company sold, a Heinz salesperson relied on a kit with fold-out cards to present the products to potential customers. Whether selling to store owners or peddling to residents in their homes, the kit allowed salespeople to show a variety of products without physically carrying them.
