This is an old Pocket Sample Case from the Ohio Card Company - dealers in Post Cards, Name Cards and more. On one side of the fold up sheet there are three, colorful, attached examples of the company products. At the bottom is a black line drawing of a postcard example and on the back are more line drawing examples all with the per dozen costs. The bottom section speaks to the salesman or agent about the products offered and it is interesting reading. It is printed on a lightweight pale green paper and the attached examples are of high quality, embossed stock.
Overall, opened, it measures about 5 1/4” by 14 7/8” and in the folded state it measures almost 3” by 5 ¼”. The paper is in somewhat fragile condition especially along the folded creases and there is light soiling and edge and corner wear. There are a few pieces of “invisible” tape in random places and there is a tear at the top corner that may be from a staple. The attached cards are in very good condition.
