Antique Graphics - 1888 Crown Lavender Bath Salts Advertisement

I've got more fascinating advertisements
from the 1800's for you today
for Antique Graphics Wednesday.

Isn't this image from an 1888
Harper's Magazine advertisement for 
Lavender Salts wonderful?  I'd love to get
my hands on a bottle like that today - 
especially with the crown lid and
pretty typography on the label.

I wouldn't want to wear one, but images
of corsets are always so pretty.

And the complete ad for it.

This ad was for a board game called, "Chivalry".
The game was created by George S. Parker in 1883,
who was one of the brothers whose company later came
to be known as, "Parker Brothers".

  7. I'd love to see a Lavender Salts bottle in real life...I can only imagine how elaborate and ornate it would be. I don't fancy myself wearing a corset nor skeleton bangs. It is difficult to imagine what it must have been like to be a woman in those days. We've come a long way baby! Thanks for bringing some nostalgia to the Show & Tell party.
