This is a cardboard backed paper sign for Heinz Soups. It was most likely a store display and was made in the 1950s when Heinz offered a wide variety of canned soups. The character on the sign was referred to as the “happy Heinz Chef”.
The H. J. Heinz Company was founded in 1869 and expanded their business to making soups in the early 1930s. Heinz is still a major condiment and prepared food manufacturer throughout the world.
