(Americana, Advertising, Illustrated Adverts, Promotional Items, Plymouth Rock Gelatine Co.).
Plymouth Rock Phosphated Gelatine.
Published c. 1895, Boston by Plymouth Rock Gelatine Co.
Folding advertising leaflet. Text in English. Color lithographed pictorial covers.
Publisher's pictorial paper sheet, folded in half and printed on both sides of four panels total.
In 1895 a grocer gave this to his daughter, presumably for use in a color scrap book which was a cultural rage at the time.
Item is old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper gently age worn, slight rubbing, two short closed edge splits, remains overall clean and attractive as a fragile survival.
Paper is lightly toned, signs of handling, small scattered spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce pamphlet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this scarce and ephemeral food-related item survives.
Covers measures c. 6 1/2" H x 4 3/4" W.
