1900 French Art Nouveau Trade Card, London (Framed)

$250.00

Date: 1900
Size: card = 4.25" x 3", frame =  11" x 9.5"

About The Poster: In the late 1800s and early 1900s companies often issued collector cards as a way of getting consumers to buy more product - much like hockey or baseball cards in the 20th century. Cigarette companies, sewing machine companies, and in this case, a company that made soup bouillon cubes (Liebig) found new and novel subjects - like faraway destinations (in this case, London!) to entice consumers to buy more product in order to collect more cards.

I found these in Milan and had them professionally (and we think beautifully!) matted and framed. Very rare, highly collectable and beautifully framed. 


The card size measures 4.25" x 3", while the framed size measures 11" x 9.5".
