Wax Art Series 1931
Morris Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Wax Art Series 1931 Wax Art Series 1931 25 - The 25 cards show pictures of items that have been embellished with artwork produced using melted sealing wax, a hobby that would appear to have died out. The first card in the set features an ink pen holder and, in what we are told is a simple way of making it more decorative, it is smeared with heated yellow wax, then when this has dried flat a stick of red wax is melted and the pen held so the hot wax is melted into the places marked for flowers. After this has cooled you model it into the flowers and then repeat the process for the green leaves, whilst the crossed over ribbons are created by rolling and attaching strips of warm wax. This was definitely not a craft for children as there must have been a real potential for hot wax related injuries! If you could master the pen holder then a whole new world opened up as there does not seem to be much you could not add wax art to. The set shows examples of pendants, boxes, brooches, vases, tumblers, a paper knife and even a matchbox decorated with flowers and edging. The backs contain all the information you need to give it a go so if you are looking for a new hobby to fill a long winter evening then you need look no further!

Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 2nd Series 1924 Do You Know 2nd Series 1924 50 - This set answers all sorts of questions such as which animals live the longest? (the giant land tortoise by the way!), why apples go brown when cut, where the world’s oldest buildings are, why a camel has a hump, why a cock is used on church weather-vanes, how flies walk upside-down etc. The colourful pictures on the front admirably illustrate the subject whilst the backs provide all the necessary explanation. Some questions make sense, such as which is the most beautiful building in the world? (the Taj Mahal in case you were wondering), but you have to wonder who would ask why the horse straightens its fore-legs first and the cow its hind-legs when rising? A fine set for any collection. Size 68 x 36mm
