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

Ardath Dogs and Pets Champion Dogs 1934 Champion Dogs 1934 EL25 - Issued in 1934 these charming cards, measuring 95 x 67mm, featuring colour pictures of dogs superimposed on an appropriate background. All are award-winning specimens and their names and those of their owners are given on the front. The numbered backs contain a simple black outline of the breed together with a list of requirements that are necessary if you want to produce a winner. For instance, we are told that a Cocker Spaniel’s coat must be flat and silky and never curly and the legs of the Bull Terrier must be big-boned, but not coarse, with cat like feet! Interestingly the colour of the Golden Retriever known as ‘Donkelve Jester’ is very dark, almost brown, and whilst this is perfectly acceptable these days most people associate the breed with the pale golden colour. Athos the Bull-Mastiff is particularly endearing with his bright eyes, whilst Kipyard Taffy the Smooth Fox Terrier is clearly standing to attention focused on his owner or perhaps a treat. Among the featured dogs are a Greyhound, Fox Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Pekingese, Alsatian, Irish Setter, Airedale Terrier, Labrador Retriever, Chow-Chow, Bulldog Golden Retriever, Dalmatian, Great Dane, West Highland White Terrier, Collie and Old English Sheepdog. These really are lovely cards for any dog lover. Size 95 x 67mm.

Gallaher Dogs and Pets Dogs captions in script letters 1934 Dogs captions in script letters 1934 L24 - For pedigree dogs Cruft’s is still the premier dog show. Judging is tough and it is difficult to tell how today’s champions compare with yesteryear’s, but you can bet that “Crackley Sure Thing”, the Fox Terrier (Wire) who won the Kennel Club’s “Best in Show” in 1933 would give a good account of himself. He is just one of 24 dogs pictured in this set again a yellow background and with smaller action picture in the righthand corner. Other bid show-circuit winners in the series include the amusingly-named English Setter “Whizbang Steadfast Lady”, a Cocker called “Whoopee of Ware” and “Wild Woolley” winner of the 1932 Greyhound Derby at White city in a record 29.72 seconds. A lovely doggie set with plenty of interesting facts on the reverse. These cards are size 80 x 62mm but this is also available as a standard 68 x 38mm size set.

Brooke Bond Birds, Butterflies & Moths Frances Pitt British Birds (white card) 1954 Frances Pitt British Birds (white card) 1954 20 - This set of 20 Frances Pitt British Birds dating from 1954 was the very first set ever issued by Brooke Bond with their packets of tea. This was prepared and designed by Frances Pitt a well-known British natural history expert and pioneer of wildlife photography. These show birds in their natural surroundings and include both hard to spot species like the bittern, hen harrier and avocet as well as common garden birds like the robin or blackbird. As you would expect from such an expert the backs are full of information and very descriptive, for instance describing the way a heron deals with its fish dinner she says “He holds it kicking in his bill for a minute, water drops flying, then somehow turns it so that it lies with its head down his throat, gives a gulp and swallows it.” A lovely little set for any nature lover. Cards size 68 x 36mm
