Yet More Old Furniture Trade Cards

July 14, 2012
by the gentle author

After recently publishing selections of old furniture trade cards that might have been found in the secret drawer of a hypothetical cabinet or discovered stashed behind a plate on the top shelf of a hypothetical alcove in the eighteenth century, it is my pleasure to show this further selection which had fallen down the back of a hypothetical armoire.

    I love the sofabeds – “an elegant sofa which converts into a four poster bed”!

    These are beautiful trade cards, but it would be particularly useful to have the dates when these were current.

    I love the ” Nimble Ninepence” – perfect for a book or shop or blog title.
    Do you have other categories of inscriptions – e.g epitaphs. Before its renovation you could read several in St Martin’s Crypt Cafe. 18th. C. ceramics also have fascinating inscriptions.
    Looking forward to seeing more or similar. Thanks.
