Victorian Trade Card - The Ghost Story by R. W. Buss - Dr. Jaynes patent medicines
This is an original Victorian trade card featuring the picture "The Ghost Story!" by R. W. Buss, and is the 16th in a series advertising the tonics, liniments, expectorants, and other "cures" by Dr. Jaynes.
The back tells about the artwork, and the full range of patent medicines provided by Dr. Jaynes to treat colds, inflammation, pleurisy, consumption, whooping cough, croup, and more. It also notes that the card is "Presented by C. H. Ray, Mantua, Portage Co., Ohio" and that it was printed by Major & Knapp Lithograph Co. of New York.
It measures 3 x 4 1/2 inches and is in nice condition with mild 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.
