Original lithograph card with a color illustration on front of a surreal scene in which a woman wearing a fancy outfit (hat, pink sash and shoes, and green dress] stands atop a blue egg as three yellow chicks run about. The egg is cracked open and empty. It is unclear if the woman or chicks emerged from the egg. Possibly published on the occasion of Easter or springtime. No date, circa 1890s-1910s. 3" x 5." Card is very clean and intact except for light age toning and a small crease in the lower-left corner. A Near 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.
