Fiedler & Fiedler (F & F) Mold and Die Works Company of Dayton, Ohio crafted the AUNT JEMIMA SYRUP PITCHER in 1949 as a premium for Quaker Oat customers in exchange for Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix box tops. The Aunt Jemima holds a white platter and is dressed in red dress, headscarf, white apron and neckerchief. Made of molded hard red plastic with spray painted facial features, skin tones and clothing, the item is in great condition with minimal paint wear.  

The iconic Aunt Jemima character was based on a vaudeville song and served as the brand's "face and brand" emblem throughout its history until Quaker Oats discontinued her in June 2020 to promote racial equality.

About Black Americana:  Black Americana, also known as Black Memorabilia, comprises various collectibles and ephemera with an African American theme. While many of these items depict an offensive, racist theme, not all of them do. Black memorabilia can honor those who have impacted the world, such as civil rights activists, musicians, researchers, and other significant members of the black community.

The artifacts of Black Americana comprise an irreplaceable record of the subjugation of African-Americans throughout history, thereby demonstrating the injustice that prevailed at the time.. Opinions with regards to the preservation of Black Americana objects differ, with some arguing that it will extend racist attitudes, while others believe it is necessary in order to ensure that the history of Black America remains in the consciousness of future generations. Mr. David Pilgrim, the founder of the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University in Michigan, used a poignant quote to sum up the purpose of these artifacts: “Use items of intolerance to teach tolerance and promote social justice.”
