Feel free to view my other response: nipnkep DIFFERENT ANTIQUE TRADE CARDS
J. D. LARKIN, MANUFACTURER OF PLAIN AND FANCY SOAPS
196-198 CHICAGO STREET, BUFFALO, NEW YORK.Each card is approx 3 X 5 inchesIn 1883 Larkin and Company began to manufacture toilet soap, the Larkin letterhead would read, Producers of Soap of every description and kind, Boraxine, Modjeska, toilet preparations, and chemically pure Glycerine. They achieved success very quickly, within two years Larkin's enterprises occupied over one acre in the city of Buffalo.These are three antique J D Larkin & Co lithographic trade Cards all from the 1880s, each card features a different image of monkeys in very fine and elaborate Victorian dress, one image depicts them in formal wedding attire with a priest in attendance. These images had racist overtones suggesting that when you use Larkin's soaps, you can clean up even the dirtiest of monkeys... The JD Larkin logo appears in the upper right corner of each card. Unused backs.The depiction of Blacks as apes & monkeys found expression in mainstreamed popular culture during this period, the effort to dehumanize them by this kind of characterization was central. All in good antique shape with softened corners and age toning, a bit of soil here and there but overall sound and uncreased.
The cards appear more yellowed in the photos than in THANKS FOR LOOKING!SHIPPING:
