VICTORIAN Trade Card for Clarks Mile End Spool Cotton - French Arc de Triomphe!
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.1887 or so
ITEM: A Victorian era trade card for Clark's Mile End Spool Cotton Thread. The front of the card depicts President Carnot of France, as well as the Arc de Triomphe and the R.G. (Republique Francais) logo at the top left.
CONDITION: Very nice with no tears, stains, etc. Back is lightly browned from age only.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: Copyright 1887 by Donaldson Brothers, N.Y.
SIZE: 4-7/16" x 2-13/16"
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
