Oversized 1893 Advertising Greeting Card LION COFFEE Knapp Co., Woolson Spice Children
SALE OVERSIZED 1893 LION COFFEE/WOOLSON SPICE/KNAPP CO. GREETING/TRADE CARD!
Tucked inside one pound packages of LION Coffee were these beautiful oversize advertising greeting cards, and this one is beautiful because of the two darling children. Probably a brother and sister, the little guy has on his ruffled shirt and hat covering his curls, and he's playing some kind of recorder or some instrument. The darling little girl covers her ears as if to say it's pretty bad music coming from that instrument! She's wearing a darling red bonnet.
The back side of this large card(5 1/8" x 7") has a lion, sheaf of wheat and a picture of a pasture where it almost looks like covered wagons in the distance. The message says: "These Beautiful Midsummer Greetings are to be had only in the One Pound Packages of Lion Coffee During July and August. Woolson Spice Co. Manufacturers...Toledo, Ohio." There is only slight wear to this wonderful advertising greeting card, mostly in the corners. You won't be disappointed to add this one to your collection of Trade Cards that were given as Greeting Cards! I also have a Christmas card from this same company, as well as a larger one from a shoe company in Syracuse, NY. You may want to check those out and have them all shipped together if you like these!
