Wix Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Henry 5th Series 1936 Henry 5th Series 1936 L50 - Kensitas cigarettes, produced by J Wix & Sons, were one of the top brands for many years, helped no doubt by their innovative promotions. In 1935 they began issuing cards featuring the antics of a mischievous boy called Henry who was the invention of well-known American strip cartoonist Carl Anderson. Each colour picture was a complete episode in Henry’s life as he gets himself embroiled in some hilarious situations. Over an eightee- month period Wix produced five different series of fifty Henry cards, with this 5th series from 1936 being their last.

Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Wings Over the Empire 1939 Wings Over the Empire 1939 M48 - It was rather unfortunate timing for Churchman’s to issue a series called Wings Over the Empire in July 1939, when Britain was on the brink of war and the only wings which the empire would see over them for several years were those belonging to German and Japanese aircraft. That having been said this is an excellent series of colour pictures including many breathtakingly beautiful views. The first twenty cover the British Isles working out from London to the west of Ireland before flying past Gibraltar and Malta to India, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Burma, followed by Southern and Central Africa, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The fascinating text include some nice little touches like New Zealand is “the pocket edition of the world” or the text for the picture of Sydney cricket ground which reads “cricket is essentially an English sport”! The set also refers to Bombay (now Mumbai) as the “Manchester of India” and says that Blackpool “possesses all the essentials of a health resort”? The inclusion of Mount Everest stretches things a little because the peak was not actually within the Empire, nor indeed was Eire (of which Dublin and Killarney are pictured). These aerial views take us on a tour of a world that was soon to change forever at a time when faraway places were still exotic and the sun never set on the Empire. These cards are size 68 x 53mm.

Quaker Oats Military - General Series Armour Through the Ages 1963 Armour Through the Ages 1963 EL12 - These cards picture, in colour, the chain-mail and metal protection used by elite warriors of the past. We say elite not just because these suits of armour cost a fortune, but also because the backs name the person for whom the suit was made as well as giving further information on the type of protection and other features. The set begins with Richard I and his mail shirt or Malberk and ends with a mailed suit made for Charles II of England, although we are told that the late 1600s marked the end of full armour wearing and is known as the half armour period. Other cards include the black armour of Edward, Prince of Wales which led to his nickname ‘The Black Prince’, the elaborate German armour of Sigismund, Archduke of Tirol, the heavily engraved suit worn by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester who was a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, the vast suit belonging to Henry VIII, the ornate armour of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Spain which was based on a Roman Legion’s uniform and Philip II of Spain’s mounted tilting armour. An interesting set with cards size 95 x 66mm

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!!

Masonic Trade Cards Co Miscellaneous Trade Cards Masonic Tercentenary Celebrating 300 years of British Freemasonry 2017 Masonic Tercentenary Celebrating 300 years of British Freemasonry 2017 EL24 - This set looks at the history of the Freemasons. The first card informs us that the Masons were formed on 24th June 1717 and that four local lodges met at The Goose and Gridiron public house, London, all the lodges being named after local inns where they met. This is followed by a drawing of Anthony Sayer the first Grand Master, a copy of the Book of Constitutions which was published in 1723, pictures of other Grand Masters, symbols etc. The card picturing Lord Ampthill says that a delegation of Freemasons travelled to meet their German counterparts before WWI and Lord Ampthill was elected a Honorary Grand Master of the German Lodges but later had to resign in order to fight. Also included is Freemasons Hall which has a library and museum open to the public and a drawing of Hitler who was bitterly opposed to the organisation and persecuted anyone associated with it. The pictures are not the best, but the text more than makes up for this giving an interesting behind the scenes look at a formerly secretive organisation. Size 105 x 74mm.
