THREE Chromolithographic Advertising Cards Hair Clothing DYE
Being offered are three examples of various dyes offered at the latter portion of the 19th century. They sure give a view of the many uses of dye!
The first card is for Ayer's Hair Vigor, colorful and soooo detailed, with mermaids swimming! It 'restores gray hair to its natural vitality and color.' The back of this card gives an amusing accounting of the virtues of using Ayer's Hair Vigor. It looks to have glued to something, with a bit of the backing torn off. It measures 4 1/4" X 2 3/4".
The second and third colorful cards are for Diamond Dyes, for domestic and fancy dyeing of dress, shawl, carpEt, ribbons or feathers, this is the dye to use! The other card expounds on paints. Both cards measure 4 7/8" X 3 3/8".
All three show wear, although the Ayer's Hair Vigor is in the best condition.
