Original lithograph card with a color illustration on front of a mother accompanying her children who play in a field. Surrounding landscape is in the countryside with houses and trees in the middleground and what appears to be a lake or bay and mountains in the background. Beautiful composition in which part of the illustration continues on the decorative rectangular border made of silver foil. No date, circa 1890s-1910s. 3 1/2" x 5 1/2." Card is virtually pristine and intact except for slight age toning and microscopic wear to edges and corners. A Fine copy. This card bears some resemblance to trade cards, which are antique business cards and the predecessors of modern trading cards. Trade cards were most common during the late nineteenth century.
