Victorian Trade Card - Domestic Sewing Machines - Cupid and Wedding Proposal - C. P. Hawley, Garrettsville, Ohio
This is an original Victorian trade card for Domestic Sewing Machines featuring a woman accepting a man's proposal "on condition that you buy me a Domestic with new wood work and attachments". Cupid stands on a chair to make a telephone call saying "Hello, Send a Domestic quick!"
The back is stamped in purple "C. P. Hawley, Agent. Garrettsville, Ohio"
It measures 4 3/4 x 2 7/8 inches and is in nice condition. The colors are bright and crisp, there are no creases or folds or wear signs. The back has a little scuffing as if the card were glued down at some point. Very nice card, especially the sharp front.
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.
