VICTORIAN Trade Card for Higgins German Laundry Soap - Shades of Gilbert & Sullivan
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 Higgins German Laundry Soap. Taking a page from HMS Pinafore by Gilbert & Sullivan, the image used to advertise the product is that of Little Buttercup being stopped by two sailors.
CONDITION: Very nice graphics however the right side edge has a flea bite of paper missing and a bit of discoloration/roughness. This is the type of card that would frame up beautifully! Plain back with just a bit of paper residue from having been in a scrap book for so long.
NOTE: The cards always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
PUBLISHERS INFORMATION: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 3-1/16" x 4-1/2"/
FINAL COMMENTS: 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.
