Victorian Trade Card - Ayer's Sarsaparilla - Garden scene
This is an original Victorian trade card for Ayer's Sarsaparilla, featuring an elegantly dressed woman relaxing in a chair in the garden with a glass of sarsaparilla while another woman, two children, and a dog. The advertising reads "Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Purifies the Blood. Stimulates the Vital Functions, restores and preserves Health, and infuses New Life and Vigor throughout the whole System. Prepared by Dr. J. G. Ayers & Co., Lowell, Mass."
The back shows a bottle of the sarsaparilla extract along with a lengthy list of its uses and benefits.
It measures 2 3/4 x 5 1/8 inches and is in excellent condition. The colors are vivid and bright, and the card has only very faint wear. There's one tiny ink spot over the letter "e" in "Lowell" on the front of the card.
Please note that the images include our watermark, you will receive the original trade card, which of course has no watermark. It will be shipped in a stiff mailer for protection.
