Four Generations 1925
Goddard Miscellaneous Trade Cards Four Generations 1925 Four Generations 1925 M3 - This set celebrates the fact that the company had been going for over 80 years hence the four generations title.

Goddard Miscellaneous Trade Cards London Views 1925 London Views 1925 M12 - This set is a real gem with charming colour pictures of famous London landmarks such as Hyde Park Corner, a surprisingly empty Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, the Royal Exchange, Greenwich Hospital with sailing ships in the foreground, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge with St Paul’s in the background, the Houses of Parliament, Horse Guards, Whitehall with soldiers parading, a bustling Piccadilly Circus with 1920s vehicles, St Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. There is something about this last card which reminds us of the A.A. Milne poem They’re Changing Guard at Buckingham Palace, maybe it’s the small child in the foreground or the obvious 1920s clothes either way this is one of our favourites from the set. The card backs all advertise Goddard’s Plate Powder used for the cleaning of electro-plate and silver and the public are cautioned that cheaper imitations may cause damage to their plate. The powder was sold in various size boxes starting at 6d each. These cards are size 82 x 53mm

Goddard Miscellaneous Trade Cards Present Day Silverware 1940 Present Day Silverware 1940 M12 - Joseph Goddard made his fortune in the 1840s when he developed a cleaner which removed the tarnish but not the surface from electroplated items. His Non-Mercurial Plate Powder was a popular seller and the company are still producing silver cleaning products today. These cards picture silverware from the 1940s displayed against a black background within a yellow border. Included among the silver items in the set is a silver and blue enamel cigarette box, a bon-bon dish with ivory and crystal decoration, a silver biscuit-box, silver tea set, a porringer (which apparently it a low bowl with two handles usually used for liquids), a rose bowl, condiment set and a silver and ivory muffin dish. The backs are mostly taken up with an advert for the company’s ‘Plate Powder’, but at the bottom the card is numbered and there is a description of the item featured include its manufacturers. Few modern houses contain much silverware these days and frankly only a country house would requite a muffin dish anyway, but with these cards you can enjoy the design and skill of this silverware which would have been on the wish list of many in the 1940s. Cards size 83 x 55mm.
