Trade Card - Adam Schaaf pianoTrade Card - Adam Schaaf pianoTrade Card - Adam Schaaf piano

According to the back, Adam Schaaf pianos was established in 1873 and won medals at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, 1893. This card was handed out by a dealer in Crown Point, Ind. and the dealer's name is stamped on the back. This pictorial is a beautiful lady with hair most excellent holding white flowers - all in an oval with a background of metallic gold. That gold has dulled over the 100 years or so ..but still looks nice. Violets fill in the card corners.
I see no date, but the card is most likely from the 1910 era as all other cards from the collection it was a part are dated within a year of two of that year.

The card is in very good condition with almost perfect edge. The left corner does have a bend where it was tucked into an album with corner tabs.

The oval portrait is interesting in its placement...well above center. I think that excellent composition.

Thank you for visiting Orphaned Treasures.
