American Bon Marché trade card

New York: American Bon Marché, 1898. 1 trade card 11.5 x 15 cm. Chromolithographed illustration on one side of flowers in a glass bowl, within a frame. The other side has an advertisement for a sale on "Holiday Goods" at the American Bon Marché, 50 & 52 W. 23rd St. near 6th Ave.. "Large Consignments of Japanese Ware, China and Glass, Toys, Fancy Goods, &c. must be closed out before the holidays. Fine French Candies In the Basement of 23 Street Arcade." No date of publication. No information has been located about this store. The LeBoutillier Bros. store was at 48, 50, & 52 West 23rd St. in 1886 and 1887, and at 50 W. 23rd St. in 1891. By 1898 they had moved to 50 6th Ave. Possibly John LeBoutillier (1846-1907) or someone else associated with LeBoutillier Bros. attempted to start another business under the name American Bon Marché at that address when LeBoutillier Bros. moved to 6th Ave. In any case, American Bon Marché didn't last long enough to leave much behind. Very scarce. In Very Good Condition: 1-cm. closed tear from one edge; one corner creased; illustration is clean; text side is slightly soiled. Very Good. Item #004604

Price: $22.00
