1882 Victorian Trade Card African American Memorabilia Domestic Sewing Machine For Sale
1882 Victorian Trade Card African American Memorabilia Domestic Sewing Machine
Victorian 1882 trade card for The Domestic Sewing Machine Company featuring African Americans as period stereotypes on an open wagon marveling at a roadside billboard advertisement. Rendered with unkind features, it is difficult to say how this was supposed to sell sewing machines. Nice lithograph by W.J. Morgan & Co., Cleveland, Ohio. One of the nicer examples of this trade card, blank back, measures 3 1/4 x 4 5/8 inches with very light aging to the paper, light soiling to verso.
