Interesting to see the Mother's Oats Ad. By the 1920's they had moved on to including semi-vitreous china pieces (made by Homer Laughlin) in their packages. One ad shows you could redeem a coupon for larger serving pieces. By late 30's, they included a solid colored ware called Carnival (also H/L made but unmarked). A company official indicated that a coupon for larger pieces was included for this, but apparently no evidence has surfaced as to what. Your ad, together with the 1920's one, tends to give credence to his remark in that this Quaker Oats subsidiary brand had a long established history of by-mail redemption.
Got anything on Larkin Soap Company using silverware for premiums? Demi-spoons exist with no maker mark and undated. And they too, shifted to chinaware premiums, so much as to open the Buffalo Pottery Co. (later Buffalo China).

HIGH ADMIRAL CIGARETTES


AMERICAN NOTIONS

CIGARETTES AND JEWELLERY

The National Cigarette and Tobacco Company have launched a new scheme in the interest of 'High Admiral' cigarettes. With each box of 500 'High Admirals’ goes a card of fifty pieces of jewellery, scarf-pins, sleeve and collar buttons, watch charms, etc., one of which is to be given "with each five-cent package. ‘The jewellery is, according to the explanation on the card, of a secret composition, and will wear as well as gold or silver.’ Seemingly these premiums are worth more than the price of the cigarettes.
