Take This Art with a Grain of Salt

Morton's Salt Umbrella Girl® is over a century old, but she's aged beautifully. Originally designed in 1911 by N.W. Ayer & Co. for the Morton Salt Company to promote its new product – freely flowing salt that came out of a round container with a patented pouring spout – the Umbrella Girl first appeared on its packaging along with the brand's iconic tagline in 1914... and they've both held a revered place in our spice racks and our hearts ever since.
