Victorian Trade Card - Die-Cut Artist's Palette - Lillie Langtry - David S. Brown Soap Makers & Perfumers
This is an original Victorian trade card for David S. Brown & Co. Soap Makers & Perfumers. It is a die-cut artist's palette shape and features a portrait of Lillie Langtr holding a flower. It is captioned "Mrs. Langtry, the Jersey Lily" - the nickname of the famous actress and mistress to royalty.
The back notes D. S. Brown of New York produces a complete line of toilet soaps the largest and most complete in the country, also a "fine line of toilet extracts" and that "Lawn Lilac" is a specialty.
It measures about 3 x 4 1/4 inches and is in good condition. The colors are a bit muted but the card appears to be clean, so likely as printed. The back has a little age discoloration, but overall it's in great shape.
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.
