VICTORIAN Trade Card for Florence Darning Silk - Woman with Cat
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 Florence Darning Silk. The card is VERY high color and depicts an old lady darning a sock while her cat plays with a spool of thread. The catchphrase at the top of the card reads "Florence - the soft finish, peerless knitting silk." Plain back.
CONDITION: Very nice with just the browning that comes with old age to the back of the card.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: Skober & Carqueville Litho Co, Chicago at the front bottom right.
SIZE: 3" x 4-5/8"
FINAL COMMENTS: A great 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.
