Beginning in the 1700's Trade Cards were the way to advertise your wares, some were made with wood blocks or copper plates.
some carried the royal seal .
these are some that run across from time to time and I thought i would put them in a post .
from Cutler to razor to bill of fare and donkey milk .

Very cool. Just made me realize I have a straight razor stashed away that needs some restoration. Wish I could send it back to 1773 they did nice work back then.

Interesting I never heard of a William Birks razor but as far as I know the tobacco pipe is only seen on Wostenholm George & son razors
