Could you post an image, please? Any markings at all, perhaps near the bottom?

You can see part of the logo , but the rest is gone. This was found in the wall at the original store. I think it is from 1895 to around 1915.

Thank you...based on historical records, the company noted (Hustisford Merchandise) was most active in the early 1900s up to around the mid-1920s era, and the advertising is likely pretty close to 1920. I am uncertain what you are seeking, however, regarding the "logo" asked about--items like this were given by a wide array of marketing firms selling anything from paint to hardware, and finding one specific print is a long shot as literally thousands were produced. Could you be a bit more specific on what exactly you are looking for?
