Rare advertising sample with an antisemitic message from the Austrian manufacturer of labels and metal signs, Marzek & Co in Vienna. The company distributed a small glassine envelope, 3. x 5.5 inches, containing nine sample razorblade package labels and one razor advertisement, the company’s address label was affixed to the envelope, and added at the top is a small red Nazi pennant with a swastika with two black bands reading ‘Arier kaufet nur bei Ariern! (‘Aryans buy only from Aryans!’) Ironically one of the sample labels uses two hexagrams or star of David in the design.
