Victorian Trade Card - TAPIOCA DE L'ETOILE

Colorful French card depicting a few of the leisure activities found in Ancient Rome ("Rome (Antique)"). This design is essentially the same as the one used in the "Sports & Pastimes of All Nations" series issued by the Arbuckle Bros. Coffee Co. in 1893 (reputedly drawn by Frances Brundage, but not signed). It shows gladiators, chariot racing, discus throwing and embroidering.

The back advertises TAPIOCA DE L'ETOILE, which received a gold medal at the 1889 World's Fair, held in Paris.

Size: 3" x 5"

Date: Not dated

Lithographer: Not identified.

Condition: Good to very good, I'd say. The front of this card is only very lightly soiled, but the back has some light glue stains around the edges and a couple small patches of surface paper loss. The edges and corners are just slightly worn. (Please see scans.)

MULTIPLE ITEM SHIPPING DISCOUNT: I will ship up to 4 cards for the single base shipping charge shown. For purchases of more than 4 cards, the shipping charge will increase by just a small increment for every 4 additional cards.
