The subjects of these James Pyles Pearline Soap advertising cards are precious. One features a distraught little girl wailing because a goose stole her bisquit. She is wearing black high top button shoes, blue socks, a double-breasted blue coat, a gold fringed shawl / scarf and a ruffled hat that frames her face. She is holding an oversized umbrella with a red lining and red tassel on the handle. She is surrounded by four white geese, one holding her bisquit in his beak. The bottom message: Highway Robbery (over). The back offers a warning not to be duped by peddlers selling soap "as good as" Pearline, which is only sold by good grocers. The second card shows a boy trying to kiss a protesting girl. The bottom message: Stolen Kiss (over). The back shows images of hands damaged from using soap and the smooth hands of a woman who has been using Pearline. Beware of imitations. The two kids have chubby bare feet. The brown haired boy holds the face of the blonde haired girl as he plants a smooch on her cheek. Her expression is priceless. This card has a creased corner. Both have shiny glue residue on the back. All ink and paper surfaces are intact. 4 1/8 x 2 5/8 inches.
