Coincidentally, I recently watched a 1926 animated film by Lotte Reiniger called The Adventures of Prince Achmet. The DVD contained a 1922 ad for Nivea soap and cream (to be shown in movie theaters, I assume), called The Marchioness's Secret. The images for both the film and the ad were incredibly complicated scissor-cut silhouettes filmed in stop-action photography. The Nivea ad seemed to display the same attention to detail as your sugar cube and cocktail napkin, with the product almost incidental to the artistry.
