Additional Information: 

The C.F. Blanke Tea & Coffee Company was founded by Cyrus F. Blanke in St. Louis, Missouri and operated from 1889-1940. The mascot for the company was a devil based on a character in a German play, Faust, in which a devil tempts the main character with unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. Ergo, the company trademarked a devil character to tempt consumers to purchase their rich coffee blends.
