3 Diff VICTORIAN Tradecards for Dr. Isaac Thompson's Eye Water
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: 3 Different Victorian tradecards - different images to the front, but all advertising the same product - Dr. Isaac Thompson's Eye Water. The graphics show a young girl applying eye drops to a boy, a wife applying drops to her husband, and an old man wondering what the heck the remedy is all about! The back of the cards all bear the same advertisement for the product.
CONDITION: Very nice, very clean fronts - the backs show light staning, darkening and some slight paper loss - the cards WERE found in a Victorian scrapbook.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: Mayer, Merkel & Ottmann, Lith, 15 & 25 Warren St., N.Y.
SIZE: Each card is the same size at 2-3/4" x 3-15/16".
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a collection!
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.
