About this Item

Oblong quarto. (7)ff., + four additional smaller samples laid in. A trade catalogue containing salesman's samples of nine different decorative lids for cookie tins, with designs printed in bright color on metal. The designs are captioned "J. J. Carnaud & F. de B. I. -- Paris." The album contains six samples mounted to the pages with small metal fasteners, and four additional examples laid in. The designs include a romantic evening scene on a Venetian gondola, a Jugendstijl-inspired pattern of flowers and butterflies in red, yellow, and green, Harlequin and Columbine, a Japanese-inspired view of a temple gate, and a Saharan scene of a man riding a camel bordered by arabesque patterns, which is included twice. The largest designs measure approximately 9 3/4 by 10 1/2 inches, and the smallest are oblong designs measuring 8 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches and 7 3/4 by 6 inches. A typed price list is affixed to the last page of the album. Bound in dark slate-blue cloth with decorative rules and the company's name printed in white to the front cover. Covers show some light rubbing, and the cloth has a few bubbles to the rear cover, some scattered spotting to the endpapers, else about fine. A rare survival of a colorful salesman's artifact.
