Palmer Cox Brownies


I recently found a nice collection of Palmer Cox "Brownies".  These are trade cards with his signature creatures in different military costumes.  They were put out by Dannemillers & Co., with their coffee.  You could collect the cards to spell Cordova, and turn them in as premiums to purchase items.  The information is on their backs.  These cards are in very good condition  -you can find them here.

Vintage Child's Punch Bowl and Cups

Vintage child's punch bowl set in the Hobstar and Pinwheel pattern.  This is a reproduction, but the woman I purchased it from said it had been in her attic for 40 years.  It would be a great display piece, or an addition to your tea party.  It is a nice set in very good condition, you can purchase it here.

A nice glass inkwell by W.L. Mason and Co.  But I cannot decide if the stopper is original.  It doesn't fit tight, just drops in, but I think it looks good.  If you're interested, you can find it here.
