VICTORIAN Trade Card for N.W. Appleton, Boston, Mass - Fairies & Butterfly!
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 N.W. Appleton, Clapp Stationery Store, No 7 School Street, Boston, Mass. The graphics on the card include a butterfly and a female and male fairy. Plain back.
CONDITION: very nice though there is a tiny bit of rippling in the card - the type that comes from a card being wet and then drying. Some bronwing to the left side but I don't know if this is meant to be there or is a result of age browning.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: None.
SIZE: 4-1/4" x 2-5/8"
FINAL COMMENTS: I think the graphics are just adorable!
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.
