This is an ultra rare original 1883 color print ad for Richmond's pink and purple prints. The ad writes, "Will not wash out, or fade out. Unequalled in beauty of color. Made in every variety of pattern..."

This is one of the most rare grocery-related original advertising items we have procured. It is from a rare trade journal printed in original letterpress manner (you can feel the emboss, deboss feel to the letter printed areas of each ad). Images were woodblock prints for most and are amazing. The journal this was removed from only went to grocery owners and industry buyers. A one-of-a-kind item in this condition and size. There will likely be some bleed through on all originals from this collection as the stock was thin. Extraordinary and important historical ads.
