Beautifully engraved Certificate from the famous Brillo Manufacturing Company issued no later than the 1950's. This historic document has an
ornate border around it with the company's name on top. This item is hand signed by the Company's President and Founder of the Brillo Pad, Milton B. Loeb and is
over 50 years old.
Credit for the commercial success of steel wool must goes Milton Loeb, a lawyer. He was approached by a costume jewellery maker who had come up with a mixture of soap and metal fibres to clean the then newly-fashionable aluminium pans. Loeb set up a company to manufacture the new product in the early part of this century, thought of the name "Brillo" and the rest is history.
Andy Warhol is without doubt one of the great stars of modern art. A founding member of the radical pop-art movement of the early 1960's, Warhol was obsessed with the 'greatness of the mundane'. He chose as the subjects of his paintings common every day objects..simple things, like Campbell's soup tins, Coca-Cola bottles and Brillo boxes became monumental works of art. Andy Warhol was almost single-handedly responsible for blurring the lines between 'high' and 'low' art. He was a prolific painter,moviemaker and publisher.Andy Warhol and the pop art movement have made a lasting impression on the culture of the modern world.
