VICTORIAN Trade Card for G. Blakeslee & Son - Children Playing in an Egg Shaped Swing
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 proclaiming Compliments of G. Blakeslee & Son. The graphics to the front of the card show 3 children playing an egg-shaped swing. Perhaps the card was meant as an Easter token. Plain back.
CONDITION: Very nice with just some light water staining to the top right and bottom right edges. Back of the card shows the brown residue of Victorian glue - the card fell cleanly out of a Victorian scrapbook.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: None.
SIZE: 3" x 4-11/16"
FINAL COMMENTS: A perfect graphic for Easter.
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.
