Phillips Flowers and the Garden Flower Studies 1937 Flower Studies 1937 M30 - If you are good at growing flowers you will know that the growing is only half the battle, the real challenge is arranging them. Don’t just shove them in a vase - why not get this set and pick up some tips on how to display these plants to accentuate their shapes and colours. The colour pictures on the front show you what they should look like and the backs give tips on how to achieve this. For instance Anemones should be arranged in bowls and make good dinner table decorations, ornamental grasses or bronze foliage are the ideal background for Dahlias, Violets must not be mixed with other flowers and if floated in shallow bowls will scent an entire room, Roses require a simple arrangement without other foliage and care must be taken to select colours that don’t clash, Nasturtiums should be cut in long sprays, Sweet Peas should be arranged in crystal or glass to show up in any light, Gladioli must stand at eye level and they need foliage to hide the stems etc. A lovely set size 60 x 53mm.

Bassett Miscellaneous Trade Cards Dandy / Beano Collection (Blue Back) 1990 Dandy / Beano Collection (Blue Back) 1990 48 - This set features characters from the popular children’s comics by D.C. Thomson of Dundee. The Dandy was first published in December 1937, but in 2012 went online before ceasing completely in 2013. One of the most popular cartoon characters in The Dandy was Desperate Dan a cowboy of superhuman strength with a love of cow pie who appears in this set along with characters from The Beano such as Denis The Menace, Minnie the Minx, the Bash Street Kids and Roger the Dodger. The Beano comic is still being produced and is now the longest running children’s comic. There is little information on the blue text back to explain pictures, but we are introduced to the characters. For instance we meet the mischievous Dennis the Menace who is “as hard as they come” and his dog Gnasher who “can make a tiger jump out of its skin”. The story is definitely not politically correct as we are informed that all these hard cases are scared because they don’t want to be picked as the Good Fairy in the panto, but lucky for them the effete Walter is happy to don the tutu. A 1st Series was produced in 1989 with black backs. These are excellent colour cartoons featuring all your favourite characters. Size 65 x 35mm.

Phillips Dogs and Pets Our Favourites 1935 Our Favourites 1935 M48 - The current craze for looking at cute animal pictures online is not new although in the pre-computer age you had to view them on cigarette cards like these that were issued in 1935. The black and white photos picture different animals with a humorous caption underneath. For instance a dog and puppy is titled ‘A chip off the old block’, there is a picture of chimps with a camera titled ‘A perfect picture, two dogs and a bone is captioned ‘The eternal triangle’, a cat playing with a pull-cord is titled ‘Blind Devotion’, dogs in giant flowerpots are titled ‘Gone to pot’, a goat climbing up to reach some leaves has the heading ‘Stolen fruits are sweetest etc. We have to say that some of the pictures use animals in ways that would not be acceptable today such as the elephant riding a bike and chimps dressed as humans, but overall this is a lovely set. The numbered backs contain an advert for ‘De Reszke The Aristocrat of Cigarettes” but no text about the subject. Cards size 60 x 53mm

Grace, Napoleon, George Washington, Isaac Newton, Dick Whittington and John Cornwell the boy V.C. This gallant-hearted minor, we are told on the card back, "was serving as a sight-setter on a warship in World Ward I when, despite being mortally wounded he stayed at his post with the gun crew dead around him because he thought he might be needed." In the tradition of Nelson's famous signal "England expects" young John Cornwell had done his duty. Nelson is also included in the set and we learn that by the age of 12 he was enduring the hardship of his first voyage. He was to become ?the greatest sea captain the world has ever known, saving England from invasion, triumphing in the Battle of Trafalgar a victory bought at the price of death, his last words being "Thank God I have done my duty.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 1939 Do You Know 1939 50 - No fewer than seven out of the fifty cards in Do You Know? by Carreras were concerned with Army or Navy matters. Perhaps the compiler had a military background, or was it because the series was produced in 1939 just before war broke out? We will never know the answer to that one. Having said that, this is an extremely well-produced series with excellent illustrations and factual texts covering topics as diverse as the origin of bowler hats, sandwiches, ‘bobbies’, hallmarks, beefeaters, saluting, the sailor’s collar and horse-shoes for luck – plus some teasers like how much the value of the contents of the British Museum are insured for (answer : nothing), the history behind women wearing wedding rings (originally round the neck so she could be tethered as ‘property’) and how the length of a yard was determined (by Henry I, the distance from the point of his nose to the end of his thumb).

Bassett Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Asterix in Europe 1977 Asterix in Europe 1977 50 - Asterix is a cartoon character originally illustrated by Albert Underzo who appeared in Franco-Belgian comics. The colourful cards feature the adventures of Asterix a clever warrior of ancient Gaul as he and his strong but dim best friend Obelix and the residents of their village try to resist Roman occupation in 50BC. They are aided in this goal by druid Getafix who brews a potent brew which gives temporary superhuman strength to anyone who drinks it. Asterix frequently travels abroad, even to Rome, but always returns to his home village after outwitting the Romans yet again. Part of the fun was the witty names given to the characters, for instance the chief is Vitalstatistix,, the dog belonging to Obelix is dogmatix, a Roman Centurion is called Crismus Bonus and the up-to-no-good chief of a rival Gaulish village was known as Chief Whosemoralsarelastix. An album was also produced to hold these cards. All good fun with details on the back. Cards size 66 x 35mm.

Barratt Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Tom and Jerry 1971 Tom and Jerry 1971 50 - In August 1940, Hanna and Barbera joined forces to direct the furry feline and mouse in their first six-minute cinema cartoon ?Puss Gets the Boot? which was an instant success and was nominated for an Academy Award. Other cartoons quickly followed, the hilarious cat and mouse antics providing much-needed laughter during the darkest years of the war, and in 1944, Jerry won audiences? hearts when he danced a sequence with Gene Kelly in the musical ?Anchors Aweigh?. The comic duo continued to delight the critics too, and in 1953 they awarded their eighth Oscar. Tom and Jerry?s lives changed in 1958 when MGM?s animation studios closed, a move which motivated Hanna and Barbera to start up their own television production company which not only originated new cartoons, but also re-animated many of the old ones. Kids, of course, love Tom and Jerry, so its hardly surprising to find Barratt?s issuing a series of fifty cards featuring the cartoon favourites, with their sweet cigarettes back in 1971, each colour picture being a self-evident situation in which Tom usually comes of worst, with a suitable description on the back.

Phillips Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Screen Stars Series B 1936 Screen Stars Series B 1936 48 - Although cinema attendances have picked up since the opening of new multiplexes admissions are still only a fraction of those in 1936 when this series was issued. This was a time when the silver screen dominated leisure activity and a new breed of glamorous Hollywood superstars such as Myrna Loy, Bette Davis and Leslie Howard held audiences spell-bound. Little wonder then that film star series were the most common card issues of the period – so numerous, in fact, that the new issues editor in our magazine Cigarette Card News in August 1936, C.L. Porter, said “sick as I am of the subject…” when opening his review of this set. He went on to admit that the production of this series was “most attractive” – a little grudging perhaps considering the obvious amount of care that has gone into producing this set, particularly the portraits, to give such a pleasing variety of poses, true-to-life pictures, superb colouring, embossed edged oval portrait within a white background style and informative text. All are excellent and combine to make what in our view is possibly the best of all the film series. Series A with frame embossed or not embossed was also produced in the same format, but although some of the same stars appear in both the majority are different. These cards are size 68 x 35mm.

Each set is individually catalogued at £3.00 or more, so this collection represents a huge saving on normal prices.

Sampler Collections

We have taken one card from each of 450 post-war standard size series and assembled them into nine different groups of 50. These are particularly useful for the collector who wishes to see sample cards before buying complete sets, and are also a great foundation for a "type" collection. Each group of 50 costs £6.00

Price: £6.00
