Bird lovers as well as ephemera enthusiasts will undoubtedly appreciate receiving one of these Victorian era cards. This set of 8, 5x7 cards features renderings of four birds; the Bluebird, Cardinal, Baltimore Oriole and the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. They are reproductions of Victorian era trading and advertising cards distributed by Singer Sewing Machine Company. On the back of each card is a description of the bird featured, in the flowery language of the day, as well as messages to seamstresses (which are fairly amusing in today's cultural context). Each card is printed on high quality lustre paper.
