Antique Graphics Wednesday - 1888 Advertisements

Today's antique graphics come from an 1888 Harper's Magazine.
I love this image for Crown Collars.

It came from this larger advertisement.
I love the typography on these old ads.

I think the little emblem at the top would look
great on some kind of project.

I also love this ad for a laundry ringer, but would love
to have the real thing.  I've come across a few, but none
of them were affordable, but I hope to get one someday.

And here's an ad for silverware that was supposedly so lovely,
it was likely poetry!

I'm off for another day of Day Camp at our church.
I'm having a lot of fun with the kids and one of the
bonuses of teaching kids is that I always learn a lot too.
It's been a great week so far and I hope the kids are learning a lot
that will bless them in the years to come.  I'd love
any prayers you all want to send up for these kids we're
reaching this week.

Remember, if you've missed any of the past graphics I post
each week, they can be found at the tab at the top of my
page labeled, "Antique Graphics to Print".

Blessings,
Angie

  3. These are great graphics! I just can't imagine that those collars were even a BIT comfortable but considering what the women had to wear back then, I think it's justified! Hope your day at camp was fun!
