Jumbo Spool Cotton Trade Cards Framed

Set of 12 "JUMBO" Spool Cotton Trade Cards, now mounted behind glass in a vintage frame.  Jumbo was a famous circus elephant whose likeness was used in advertising CLARK'S SPOOL COTTON, the image of the elephant used to convey the strength of the thread.  

Each card depicts a humorous scene either involving Jumbo and Scott's thread, or shows Jumbo on his tour of England (Jumbo's arrival at Castle Gardens; Jumbo at the Bar; Jumbo poised as an Aesthete with a sunflower buttonhole, attended by an Oscar Wilde caricature; Jumbo at the Opera.)  Average card measures 3" x 5"  Frame measures 19" H x 22.5" W

Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $110.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

Condition:

Cards are in overall good condition; some have small chips at margins, or have been trimmed.  Dark green and gold frame has nice patina.
