Fax Pax Miscellaneous Trade Cards Fables 1988 (1995 redesign presentation box) Fables 1988 (1995 redesign presentation box) L36 - This set of 36 cards with rounded corners feature modern translations of well-known fables, mainly Aesop’s classics, charmingly illustrated by Gesine Mahoney. The pastel pictures are beautifully drawn and the backs tell the fable and give the moral at the bottom. For instance The Dog and his Bone shows the dog and his reflection in the water and the back tells the tale with the moral at the end explained i.e. If you are too greedy you may end up with nothing. I must admit I had not heard of some of these like the Pedler and the Donkey or the Dog in the Manger, but it’s a fascinating set beautifully drawn. Size 102 x 64mm

Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues British Costume blue back 1967 British Costume blue back 1967 50 - These illustrate male and female dress from 1050 to the swinging Sixties and include formal court wear, day wear and even a Scottish kilt and Welsh country dress. This is a fine historical set with plenty of information on the reverse. For instance we learn that dresses for ladies in the 1920s flattered the flat chested and men had a new soft felt hat. These colourful cards also demonstrate perfectly the excessive lengths to which being fashionable can take you – this is especially apparent in the 1880s when in addition to the incredibly tight corset an extreme bustle was attached on the back which we are told had to support the weight of the heavily-trimmed overdress. Such a dress must have severely restricted movement and it is no wonder that the Rational Dress Society was founded in that same period to promote more comfortable clothing. This blue text back set was issued in 1967 and an album was originally available to house these cards, but the set was also re-issued by Brooke Bond in 1973 with black text with a re-issue album. These provide a real guide to clothing over the centuries and the cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Barratt Miscellaneous Trade Cards Wisecracks 1st Series 1969 Wisecracks 1st Series 1969 50 - This set pictures humorous colour cartoons with a mixture of jokes, tricks and puzzles and limericks on the reverse. For instance the card picturing a doctor visiting a patient says on the back “Doctor: You’re coughing more easily this morning.. Patient: So I should be I’ve been practising all night” or “What does the big flower say to the little flower? Hiya, Bud”. Tricks include turning a glass upside down without spilling water, making a stamp disappear and telling a card by magic, whilst puzzles include how to turn a Z into a rectangle or cross and converting symbols into words etc. This would be an ideal set to help you entertain children or grandchildren over the holidays. Cards size 66 x 35mm.
