Wooltex Styles Catalog.
Published 1906, by the H. Black Company.
16 pages, plus color pictorial wrappers. Images within all b&w. Text in English. Old crease down the middle, likely from having been mailed to recipients folded in half.
Not fashion for the common person, but elegant dresses for the affluent (wealthy) woman.
Most store sales catalogues survive by random chance, like today the vast majority disposed of shortly after receiving or ordering from. All should be considered fairly scarce, perhaps even rare, like this one.
Item remains relatively well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
