VICTORIAN Trade Card for J&P Coats Best Six-Cord Spool Cotton!
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: A Victorian era trade card for J&P Coats Best Six-Cord Spool Cotton and Cleopatra's Needle - The greatest Thread and Needle in the world. The graphics depict the tail end of a ship with a spool of thread which has unravelled and is pulling a barge.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems to the front - no stains, no tears, etc. The reverse is blank and has slightly browned from age.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: None. It's interesting thought that the front of the card reads OVER at the bottom right and there is nothing on the back. I guess someone forgot to print something.
SIZE: 5" x 2-7/8"
FINAL COMMENTS: Cool!
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.
