Which one of these things doesn’t belong in the group?
Paper, Sphinx, Refrigerator, Advertising
Ha! Trick question. They all belong together, at least in this c.1955 advertisement from Consolidated Enamel Papers. One of their clients, Servel, used their product to publish their newsletter. Servel manufactured refrigerators, and one of their ad campaigns featured their product between the paws of the Great Sphinx, which is reproduced in Consolidated’s ad. A pretty nifty coincidence, since any of Servel’s numerous ads could have been chosen – but once again, the fascination with Egypt won out, not once but twice.
