Easter Greetings For Grandma Woolson Spice Victorian Trade Card 1894

Easter Greetings For Grandma Woolson Spice Victorian Trade Card 1894
For those who love vintage ephemera, here's a beautiful 1894 antique Woolson Spice Easter Greetings For Grandma chromolithograph trade card featuring a sweet curly-haired girl carrying a small wicker basket in one hand and a white flower in the other. Her wide brim Easter hat is topped with billowy white feathers. 

I couldn't find another online offering of this particular trade card in my research, but the illustration quality is near that of Maud Humphrey or Frances Brundage. Look at that face; she's just super sweet!

The condition of the card is quite good, especially considering its age. The bottom left corner has a backward bend / crease, with a very short tear on the front layer halfway in on that corner. Other than that, there is a short, light crease in the upper right-hand corner and subtle rounding or separating at the corner edges.

On the reverse side, the bottom left corner reads Gast Litho Co., New York & Chicago, while the bottom right corner is marked Copyright, 1894, Woolson Spice Co. The marketing content on the back of the card extends an offer through January 1, 1895; shoppers who mailed in 25 Lion Coffee wrappers would receive a fine pocket knife for free.  The bottom of the card reads "Beautiful Picture Cards - You will find a beautiful picture card in every package of Lion Coffee during 1894, those for Easter, Midsummer and Christmas being particularly fine. The above are only two of our many fine premiums. A complete Illustrated Premium [...] will be mailed with your first premium, or a list may be secured before then by sending stamp for return postage."

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
