Actors Natural and Character Studies 1938
Ogdens Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Actors Natural and Character Studies 1938 Actors Natural and Character Studies 1938 50 - 1938 and Hollywood was booming. New cinemas were springing up everywhere, new colour photography was bringing greater realism to the silver screen and the public flocked to picture palaces in their droves. Film star cigarette card sets were the latest craze for collectors, and Ogdens joined the bonanza, but their set had a novel approach. Each card has two pictures, one of the star’s natural pose, the other showing him or her in character mode. Examples are W.C. Field (as Mr. Micawber), Boris Karloff (“The Mummy”), George Robey, Gracie Fields, Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson, Mr Douglas Bying (cast as Queen Elizabeth!) and Florence Desmond on no. 9 playing Elizabeth Bergner who is pictured on no. 2. An absolutely brilliant set. This set was also issued by Hignetts. Size 68 x 36mm

Lot 20

Summer is upon us and this month’s auction will certainly brighten your day. It is full of fantastic lots from just a couple of pounds up to the most expensive at £700. This is Lot 20, and is our star lot for June. It was extremely hard to decide this as there were so many to choose from as you whill find out in this preview.  To highlight further lot 20 is a complete set from Taddy and is the series Famous Jockeys.  To be more accurate it is the series without frame line and blue title issued around 1905 and the set has been assessed as good to very good with some with foxing on the backs. Normally it would be valued at £900 if in top condition however taking the condition into account, Famous Jockeys has been estimated at £700. For further information about any lot, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone 01458 273452 or via e-mail cards@londoncigcard.co.uk
