MA-LE-NA Ointment for the skin.....early trade card from Pennsylvania

Many of the trade cards you find that are over 100 years old are not in great shape..  But even with dings, nicks and creases they are still charming and very collectible.  One thing though, is often the pictures do not have anything to do with the product.  This large trade card has 3 darling girls on the front which maybe has nothing to do with skin ointments.  But I love the detail of this artistic rendition of these young girls.  Sometimes it is hard to tell if it is an actual photo or a painting.

The bonnets, caps are fluffy and tied under the chin with a bow.  What caught my eye was the lace covers over the shoulders.  So this is a great trade card even though it is well worn.

Busy with Ebay doing so well for me

Acquiring Trade Cards of great interest every week or two.  Along with a few postal history covers and postcards.  Typing away as I sit by the water cooler.
