VICTORIAN Trade Card for J&P Coats Thread - Gulliver & The Lilliputians
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 trade card featuring Dean Swift's Captain Lemuel Gulliver tied up by the Liliputians. The card is for J&P Coats Best Six Cord Spool Cotton.
PUBLISHER: Printed by Donaldson Brothers, Five Points, New York.
CONDITION: Great color. Clipped left corner. Slight tonal coloration along the cream edges. Clean Back - Synopsis of the Gulliver Story is able to be read clearly.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
SIZE: 3" x 4-1/2"
FINAL COMMENTS: Perhaps there were more to this series by J & P Coats? Wouldn't it be fun to try to track them all down! Priced accordingly keeping the clipped edge in mind.
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.
