VICTORIAN Trade Card for Clarks Mile End Spool Cotton - Jester & Children
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 Clarks Mile End Spool Cotton. The front of the card shows a French pierrot - clown - jester - watching a boy jump over a spool of cotton thread. The catch phrase at the bottom reads "this goes over everything." Pertinent info re the product is on the back.
CONDITION: About as perfect as you can get with o discoloration, tears, rips, stains, etc.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 4-1/8" x 2-13/16"
FINAL COMMENTS: A terrific card!
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.
