Actresses 1898
Morris Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Actresses 1898 Actresses 1898 30 - These are black bordered black and white photos of actresses from the 1890s which are stamped on the front “photo of Bassano”. English photographer Alessandro Bassano was all the rage in the late Victorian era and was famous for his high society portraits and picture of Kitchener which was used in the famous recruiting poster in WWI. He seems to have taken just as much trouble with these beauties who include Dora Bateman who went on to appear in silent movies, Jessie Bateman who began as a child actress, Muriel Beaumont who retired from acting in 1910 and is the mother of writer Daphne du Maurier, Rosie Boote who caused scandal by marrying the 4th Marquis of Headford in 1901, Evie Green a star of Edwardian musical comedies and Decima Moore a singer/actress who sung soprano with the D’oly Carte Opera Company, was active in the women’s suffrage movement and was awarded a CBE for her work in the First World War. Curiously two of the ladies appear more than once, but we don’t know why. Singer and comedian Nina Sevening appears on 3 cards and Marie Shields on 2. The plain back cards measure 68 x 41mm.

CWS Flowers and the Garden Wayside Flowers (Gray/green back) 1928 Wayside Flowers (Gray/green back) 1928 48 - Modern farming practices, the ever-encroaching urban sprawl and pollution of one kind or another have all had a dramatic effect on wildlife in general and wild flowers in particular since the 1920s when this set was produced. Ironically motorway banks and verges have become a major haven for many species whose former habitats have been under pressure, but it was hedgerows along country lanes which the Co-op had in mind when they issued this set of Wayside Flowers. These contain lovely colour paintings of plants in bloom, some also with a close-up inset of the flower or seed, and descriptions on the back which include quaint medicinal uses and adverts for “Anglian Mixture” and “Tyneal Plug” tobacco. Some, like Orache and Sneezewort may be unfamiliar, but then there’s buttercup, daisy, primrose and violet, plus our old friend dandelion whose name comes from the French “dent-de-lion” or “Lion’s tooth”, although we believe many of our Gallic neighbours still call it by its alternative name “pis-en-lit” which translates as “wet-the-bed”, a reference to the plant’s diuretic properties. The cards are size 67 x 36mm.

Primrose Amazing Black Friday to Cyber Monday Deals Popeye 3rd Series 1961 Popeye 3rd Series 1961 50 - This is sure to bring back memories as it features cartoon character Popeye the famous sailor and pipe smoking man who acquires legendary strength when he consumes spinach. These brightly coloured cartoons show Popeye and family in a variety of situations with a comedy caption underneath such as the card showing Popeye in a café captioned “The coffee tastes like mud?” “Not surprising it was only ground this morning!”. Our favourite has to be the one of Popeye and child in a gallery looking at a statue without hands which is captioned “See what happings if ya bites yer fingernails!”. The backs contains adverts for Primrose sweets including their Penny Bars and “try more Primrose Popeye Sweet for scrumptious fun” as well as a Popeye picture card album which you could send away for to house your cards. Primrose also produced a 1st, 2nd and 4th series of Popeye cards with different subjects, but in similar format. These cards are size 67 x 33mm.

Lot 21

Amongst the sets, part-sets, type cards, autograph and promo cards in this 406-lot auction are some interesting and historic items. This is certainly the case with our star lot which this month is lot 21 Duke Tob USA set 50 Scenes of Perilous Occupations c1890 (estimated at £900). The backs of these cards are all readable and only a few of the cards are fair or good with the remainder in very good condition. You would think that the word occupations in the title would mean these are all jobs, but some of the scenes depicted are of what might be called leisure activities such as bridge jumping, playing cards in Dakota or fox hunting. Among the people doing dangerous jobs round the world are lumberjacks, policemen, fishermen and circus acts. Curiously one card describes a fight with an Orang-outang whilst exploring Africa which is highly unlikely as this species don’t live there and the artist can’t have seen one as the creature depicted is black not orange-brown. 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 


Remember we do not have any hidden costs its the cost of the winning bid plus postage and that's it!!
