1890s Tin Pinback Button Swift and Company Wool Soap Great Graphics1890s Tin Pinback Button Swift and Company Wool Soap Great Graphics

Please ignore the first HUGE photo, as Ruby Lane enlarges the first photos to unrealistic proportions for small items! The image is sharp and clear. This is a small, antique, celluloid, advertising promotion button that was made by Whitehead and Hoag Co., Newark, New Jersey. The last patent date is July, 1896. It measures just 7/8 inch in diameter. It is in near mint condition, with no damage whatsoever, except a small mark on the cardboard backing. Most excellent graphics show two little girls in wool nightshirts. One is saying that her mama used wool soap, and the other, in the obviously shrunken wool nightshirt says that she wishes hers had! Just adorable, and hard to find in any condition, and this one is an excellent example. Please note that the photos are ENLARGED to show detail
