Cavanders Animals & Wildlife Animal Studies 1936 Animal Studies 1936 36 - The animals are pictured in sepia coloured photographs with a humorous caption underneath and there are plenty of cute shots to make you go ahh! Cats and dogs dominate, but the set also includes, chimps, a gorilla, a donkey, a lion, budgies and even a highland cow and calf. There are also a couple of inappropriate cards. One of these shows a small child riding an Alsatian, which is definitely not to be encouraged and the other is a lovely picture of nine black Labradors at a table, but sadly I can’t illustrate this either as the caption is unacceptable. Aside from this the set is charming and the captions really add to the pictures. The numbered backs contain the series title and explain that these were “Issued by Cavanders Ltd of London, England. The firm of Three Centuries. Established – 1775”, but sadly there is no information on the pictures or photographers. Lovely pictures for any animal lover. Size 68 x 36mm

Cavanders Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Ancient Egypt 1928 Ancient Egypt 1928 L25 - The mysteries of ancient Egypt have fascinated generations of Europeans trying to unravel the secrets of pyramids, but the discovery of the tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amen by the Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter in 1922 thrilled the world. The amazing treasures revealed and the strange circumstances of the Earl’s early death giving rise to rumours about “the curse of the Pharoahs”, sparked a frenzy of interest in Egyptology. Tobacco company Cavanders decided to exploit this phenomenon and in 1928 they commissioned cards on the subject of ancient Egypt. These cards feature colour pictures based on original Egyptian drawings set on a rich gold or silver background. This illustrate every aspect of everyday life in the Nile Valley such as winnowing corn, making pottery, textiles and bricks, fishing etc. The set also includes troops, trumpeters and archers of the army and we learn about their kings and gods in the highly informative texts. Amongst the gods featured is Anubis who is portrayed with a mummy and a bird. We are told that resurrection of the body was believed necessary for the after-life so the dead were carefully embalmed and the bird represents the spirit or soul returning to breathe life back into the mummy whilst Anubis prepares to unwrap the bandages ready for the body to live again. Cavanders also produced a standard size set in the same format, but with different illustrations. This large size set is size 89 x 60mm.

Cavanders Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Set 6 1934 Cinema Stars Set 6 1934 30 - This set, known as "Set 6" comprises thirty hand-coloured pictures issued with Cavanders "Army Club" cigarettes in 1934, according to the catalogue. We suspect it was issued slightly earlier. There are clues - Vilma Banky is noted as having been voted most popular actress in 1927. Early talkies such as "The Jazz Singer"and "The Ghost Train" (1928) are mentioned. Dolores DelRio was born in 1904 and we are told she married for the second time at the age of 26 - which takes us to 1930. (Incidentally, another Dolores, Dolores Costello was married to John Barrymore). But there the date clues run out, except by omission - for instance Bebe Daniels' prominent role in "42nd Street" is not included in her list, so we're going to stick our necks out and suggest this set dates from around 1932, and certainly pre-October 1933 because no review ever appeared in Card Collectors News, which began publication that month. Strangely, Esther Ralston appears twice inthe set - at numbers 10 and 29 - both with exactly the same texts but different portraits. Why? This set leaves many questions unanswered and could provide film buffs with a lot of research opportunities! Size 67 x 36mm. The set was also issued with a plain back with in sepia
