Here is a company website https://www.baschieri-pellagri.com/en/default.aspx. They may know if Fede doesn’t. I wonder what the dog has in its mouth. If it has Savoia emblem, than it’s pre 1946.

Based on the boxes illustrated, it would date from the early 1950’s. Also, it is certainly pre-1958, that is before it was converted into a joint stock company (S.p.A.). This dog has a box of “Tricolor M.B.” shotshells, but the same ad was used after this date showing a dog with a “F2” brand shotshell box in its mouth.

Fede, you are amazing. I hope to meet you at SLICS next year. How do you know all of this? I don’t even know where my car keys are every morning when I have to race to work.

Uhm… is it just me, or do they look like Laurel & Hardy?
Cool poster!
