Type: Food Address: Elkhart IN Circa: 1880's - 1900 Approx size: 5 1/2" H x 3" W Victorian trade cards are an early form of collectible advertising. Popularized after the Civil War by businesses, they offer a colorful and diverse look at popular culture and society in the late 1800s. Trade cards originated in England in the 1700s with tradesmen advertising their wares. But the advent of lithography in the 1870s made it possible to mass-produce them in color, leading to a golden age from 1876 to the early 1900s when halftone printed newspaper and magazine ads became more economical. Trade cards typically had a picture on one side and an ad on the other. There were custom cards printed for specific products, and stock cards which could be used for any product. Trade cards were popular for medicines, sewing, and farm equipment, and a range of other products. Some rare Victorian trade cards are now worth thousands of dollars, for example cards advertising Clipper Ships traveling from the East Coast to California in the 1860s. This Trade Card along with several hundred more are from my mother's vast collection. She has been collecting vintage Ephemera since the 60's and focused on the very early pieces Please see all pics for more details and an accurate physical condition as they are part of the overall description. As with all vintage paper, there may/ will be edge wear and/ or creasing. I will combine shipping when multiple cards are purchased.
