Here’s a very handsome die-cut trade card in the shape of an artist’s palette. This will now be the third in my collection. As was the case with the others, this one depicts the palette as if it had been painted with a scene using the paints thereon.
This one shows a lad with a fishing pole, wading through a creek. I don’t know why he needs the pole since he’s already stepping on any fish he might need.
What sets this card apart is the fact that this one was designed for a specific business. The name of the company is not over-printed, but rather, is part of the artwork.
The card was made for D.S.B & Co. of New York who bill themselves as:
SOAP MAKERS & PERFUMERS.
Let’s see what the reverse says.
Well, I can see that the initials stand for D.S. Brown.
