1855 ADVERTISING BROADSIDE

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Manufacturer: American antique

This 17" X 10 ¾" red white and blue broadside will mat and frame to a most attractive example of pre Civil War Americana. It will be of special note to a wide variety of specialized collectors as the broadside seeks to enlist ‘agents’ to purchase formulas with the direction for making for resale a variety of ‘modern discoveries’. The formulas are of coures offered at discount prices and the prospective ‘agent’ is assured that these ‘articles of real value’ will when in the hands of an ‘efficient young man’ enable him to make ‘first rate wages’. All at a ‘trifling outlay’ and surely ‘without any risk’. Instructions for the making of 21 ‘Modern Discoveries’ are offered for sale individually priced or for $8.00 an especially enterprising budding businessman could purchase all 21 formulas and receive a bonus volume titled ‘Chances To Make Money’. Some of the highly valued ‘DESCOVERIES’ listed are: American Commercial Writing Ink – Shaving Soap – American Washing Compound - Magic Copy Paper - Patent Gold & Silver Counterfeit Detector – Indelible Ink – Hair Color – Crockery Mending Cement and others to include medical cures, Freckle Remover and hair restorer. A neat advertising piece all printed on one side and remaining in excellent condition with only a small chip in the lower right margin (see our illustration) and period fold lines as evidence of age and originality.
