About this Item

N.d., late 19th century. The Wilsons & Co. snuffmakers go back to 1737; it is still in operation. This piece of floral ephemera measures about 26 cm across at the widest. The roughly square piece when open has shaped and uneven edges. It closed up to a triangle that is about 13 cm in length, 7 cm across at its widest, and this fits into a glassine envelope with the company name and info printed on one side. When closed, one sees only the two color printed passion flowers. When open, the remaining 14 of 16 sides (the flower is printed on both sides) have a gilt illustration of a particular flower with a few lines of verse describing that flower beneath. Essentially, this is an origami version of the "language of flowers" sentimental botanical variety. Remarkably well preserved, with the original envelope. Bookseller Inventory # 003854

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
