We will be continuing to sell items from a large estate with 1,000's of pieces in all paper ephemera categories. Each one different and unique. Please keep checking our auction catalogs.


Very good condition for her age (circa 1890). She has chips around bottom and some that have been filled in over the years. The flea bites and small chips have been left alone since it looks better than trying to do a marker job.
