c1880s Victorian stock trade card with standard three-color lithography for a local clothing store - featuring a winter image of children at play on the local ice pond, with adults ice-skating in the background. The L.C. Warner store apparently offered the "lowest prices"!
Stock trading card with blank back measures 4-1/2" high x 2-5/8" wide.
PHOTO NOTE: Small defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person. The photos also distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are often more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person.
CONDITION NOTE: LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE ATTACHED PHOTO. Condition is accurately shown. This stock trade card is in excellent condition. The front images are very clean and undamaged. Some age discoloration around the edges. No tears or creases. Corners are very slightly blunted (if at all). One corner tip lightly creased. The blank back shows a light abrasion, but is otherwise very clean – no obvious glue residue stain. ALL DEFECTS ARE VISIBLE IN THE PHOTOS.
