Butterflies and Moths (Paper backed Silks) 1925
Lea Birds, Butterflies & Moths Butterflies and Moths (Paper backed Silks) 1925 Butterflies and Moths (Paper backed Silks) 1925 L12 - These paper-backed silks illustrate butterflies and moths in vivid colour with basic information about the subject on the backs. Issued with Lea’s Golden Knight Cigarettes in 1925 we are told on the backs that they made “delightful subjects for embroidery and applique” and patterns and instructions were available post free, if accompanied by an empty packet, from “R.J. Lea ltd., ‘Chariman’ Tobacco Factory, Manchester”. We don’t recommend sewing these, but they do make a nice addition to any collection with the pictures as colourful now as when issued all those years ago. Two other sets were also issued at the same time in different sizes, namely a small size (70 x 44mm) set and extra-large size (143 x 70mm)) set which contain different images. Cards size 88 x 70mm
