Victorian Trade Card - Excelsior Clothiers Cleveland, Ohio - Over the Garden Wall
This is an original Victorian trade card for Excelsior Clothiers of Cleveland, Ohio. It is captioned "Over the Garden Wall" and features a caricature of a very long-legged man leaping over a wall waving a handkerchief at a woman in a window who also waves a handkerchief, while another man, presumably her husband, chases him. Printed in the corner is "Trade with the Excelsior Clothiers" of Cleveland, Ohio.
The back is blank.
It measures 2 1/2 x 4 inches and is in good condition. There is a little discoloration on the lower edge, and on the back there is a small, non-sticky bit of cellophane tape or similar. Corners have light wear.
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.
