    I have a print of the Gerber Baby (Ann Turner Cook) however, in the left bottom corner it says Copyright “Fremont Canning Co 1931” and in the right corner “The Gerber Baby”. It also has Dorothy Hope Smith’s initials. Might this be a copy? And when were they distributed?

      The Fremont Canning was the company producing the Gerber baby food. The Gerber Baby symbol was created during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

        I have a 10 x 11 inch print I found at an Antique shop, but it only has “THE GERBER BABY” printed on the bottom right corner of the print and the paper stock is textured with Horizontal, Vertical and Wave lines. Does this mean it is a print from before 1931 before they copy wrote and registered the image? Is this a pre-1931 print?
