#ZZZ126 - 1870s Advertising Trade Card for the American Woven Leather Belting Co. - Milton Bradley
#ZZZ126 - 1870s Advertising Trade Card for the American Woven Leather Belting Co. - Milton Bradley
Vintage 5 1/4" wide cardboard advertising trade card. This is a very old one from around 1870. This style of card was used before the advent of fancy color printing in the 1870s. Marked "The American Woven Leather Belting Co. Springfield, Mass." "Edward Coats, Pres" "Office 55 Fuller Building" "Factory, Belchertown, Mass". Interestingly, the printers mark says "Milton Bradley Co. Springfield, Mass". Around 1870, Milton Bradley had a lithography shop which is where these were made. Since they were printing boxes for their toys, they made some extra money doing lithography on the side too. They have a little paper aging, but are in amazing condition considering they are over 140 years old.
