2 VICTORIAN St. Louis, Mo Trade Cards - Mermod, Jaccard (Jewelers) & Empire Soap Co
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Both Art and I love paper and with Art’s collection from the past 50 years and my collection from the last 30 years, we have a lot of ephemera to offer on Ruby Lane. It is going to take some time to get it all listed, but when we finish, there should be something to tempt anyone who visits the shop. Up for offer now…..
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: 2 Victorian era trade cards from St. Louis, Missouri. The first, a card for Mermod, Jaccard & Co - the Tiffany of St. Louis Jewelers; the graphics depict a boy, an American flag, an Eagle, a dog and more animals to the right. Talk about Patriotic! The second card is for the Empire Soap Co and features a floral illustration. The back of each card bears the pertinent information for each company.
CONDITION: Very nice overall. The Mermod card has a fragment of scraping to the bottom right. Both cards show sticker/paper residue from having been in an album for so long. Fairly clean though for old paper!
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: None.
SIZE: Mermod measure 3-3/16" x 1-13/16". Empire measures 1-15/16" x 3-5/16".
FINAL COMMENTS: Wonderful antique cards!
FURTHER NOTE: I can put an awful lot of paper into one envelope so be assured, if you buy more than 1 piece of paper, I will adjust the postage once I receive the purchase order. And please, don’t pay until I HAVE revised the postage. Thanks.
