The House That Jack Built - An American Vintage Paper Model
by Mellin's Food Company


"This Is the House That Jack Built" is a popular British nursery rhyme and cumulative tale. This vintage paper model was published by Mellin's Food Company to promote its "Mellin's Food for Infants and Invalids". Mellin's Food Company was a maker of Mellin's Food for Infants and Invalids in Boston, Massachusetts. The company started when the English food chemist Gustav Mellin developed an infant formula in 1866. Mellin's formula was a simplified version of one which had been recently invented by the German chemist Justus von Liebig. It wasn't a complete nutritional supplement, the powder was diluted with cow's milk and water and was called a "milk modifier". It was a "soluble, dry extract of wheat, malted barley and bicarbonate of potassium." The formula was advertised with the slogan: "Mellin's Food for Infants and Invalids: The only perfect substitute for Mother's Milk". - This vintage paper model was preserved and is now shared by the collector Patrick Marks.

Era um "extrato seco e solúvel de trigo, cevada maltada e bicarbonato de potássio". A fórmula foi anunciada com o slogan: "Comida de Mellin para Bebés e Inválidos: O único substituto perfeito para o leite materno". - Este modelo de papel antigo foi preservado e é agora compartilhado pelo colecionador Patrick Marks.
