AncientFaces I don't see them as offensive, you have no idea where they live, who they bought them from, or where they were manufactured. Its common for African and arab plaques to be found in homes all over the world

That's a nice piece of information! In California, we used to have a coffee shop chain that was called "Sambos." The walls were painted with murals from the story. They were all closed down - did they exist in other parts of the US? Do they still?

AncientFaces I looked it up. It was originally in 47 states, but in the 70’s it got a lot of flack due to its name, which was actually a combo of the two owners names. They capitalized on “Sambo” and it eventually backfired on them. Apparently, Santa Barbara is the only one left and is still open!

Yeap, these "exotic" plaques are spreading not very good vibrations for totally different culture...

No, unfortunately we had a Sambos in Arlington, Texas until the late 1970s. The imagery was as offensive as it sounds. Worse.

I also don't find the wall sconces offensive. I have Arabic art in my home (only Islamic patterns) and no one finds that offensive.

AncientFaces we lived in Syracuse NY in the mid 80’s to early 90’s and had a Sambo’s where we enjoyed their breakfasts. They are definitely closed now but their food was actually good.

My aunt has some wall plaques similar, it was popular then and she lived in small town, western Canada.

AncientFaces - Had them in South Carolina - they were actually named after the two founders Sam b. and Mr Bohnett. SAM-BO. People assumed it was named after the children’s storybook and the owners capitalized on the assumption.

AncientFaces Sambo's Restaurant decor and theme was fashioned after the popular children's book, "Little Black Sambo". About a family in INDIA whose son, Sambo, loved pancakes. Sambo's Restaurant was a pancake house. The author lived in India most of her life and wrote the book for her grandchildren. I grew up with the book and loved t. It had NOTHING to do with Africans. It made a hero out of a little Indian boy who conquered a Tiger and made Tiger Butter for his pancakes. P.C. idiocy of today has gotten way out of hand and robbed us of some classics.

Offensive? It was when women looked like women, and it worked WAY better that way. And I say mid-late 60's, as the "Mom" isn't wearing any gloves with such a fancy dress. My friend's Mom has a picture of her & her Husband from 63, and she's wearing gloves in it. Could be earlier, but that's what I think...

Osaka, we all know what is implied.....but no matter what you or I think today it was not applicable then. It was a simpler time, it was what it was......no political reprocussions back then. So chill out and take it as it WAS.

Iri Bendis ok, I'll say it for the women that want to but are affraid to say it......YES!!!! Or at least clothes that keep your private parts private. Stop taking selfies of yourself all puckered up, you look dumb. Stop drinking in bars and making an ass of yourself, stop the dirty language, leave married men alone, leave your friend's boyfriend alone, and have a sandwich so your clothes have something to hang on to
