Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
3 Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
Atlantic City, New Jersey H.J. Heinz Company Circa Early 1900's card cover Good-plus condition 
This is such a charming catalog, published to accompany an antiques and art exhibit on Heinz Ocean Pier in Atlantic City, "the seadside home of the 57 varieties." I'm surprised that there is no date, but I certainly can't find one. The clothes, however, offer a good clue. There were 162 items on display, many of Asian origin, but not all. The guide book measures 4-1/2" x 7-1/2" and has a few black and white photographs throughhout. The one I showed is the only damaged one -- loss of upper corner which does not impinge on the integrity of the image. Two wonderful color scenes inside -- one at the back of the front cover showing the beach and the second inside the back cover showing the Heinz Model Kitchens in Pittsburgh, PA.

Atkins Saws In The Home & Atkins Silver Steel Dado Heads (Vintage Advertising Brochures from E.C. Atkins & Company)
4 Atkins Saws In The Home & Atkins Silver Steel Dado Heads (Vintage Advertising Brochures from E.C. Atkins & Company)
Indianapolis Atkins Saw Company No date 
Though some would argue that Diston Saws, made in Philadelphia, were the finest handtools of the 19th and early 20th centuries, others would rank products made by the E.C. Atkins Co. of Indianapolis right up there with the best of them. This wonderful brochure entitled Atkins Saws in the Home gets the point across with both its cover graphic of a smiling man using a hand saw and this snappy copy: "Mr. Happy Man says a saw that 'chews' may cost less but the saw to choose is an Atkins. The Finest On Earth." Though the trifold brochure is undated, it appears to be from the 20's or 30's. It measures 4x9" folded, 12" by 9" when opened and 12x18" when extended to full size. The graphics of the full extended page are fabulous --wonderful images of the various saws produced by the company in black and white against a light grey background banded in the same blue as front cover.Copy includes Hints for the Home Workshop, Useful Facts & Figures, How To Care For A Good Saw, plus info on the company and its motto -- "For the man who does things." We will also include a smaller brochure advertising Atkins Silver Steel Dado Heads booklet printed with the name Waco Tool Works of Chicago. This, too, is a trifold, but measures just 3-1/2" x6" closed. Both are in very good condition with just a small bit of soiling to outer fold of larger brochure and a speck of paper loss at a couple corners when fully extending (see photo). Goof gift for an antique tool collector.

Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
6 Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland, Ohio Broadway Photo Company turn of the 20th century Cabinet card Very good 
Cute little person in a very big chair. May be a rocking chair. There are no names on the back and no dates, so I'm guessing this picture was taken around the turn of the 20th century. The Broadway Photo Co. was located at 1150 Broadway, Cleveland, Ohio, but research hit a dead end from the start. The card measures 4-1/4"x6-1/2" and is very nice and clean with no wear to edges

Celluloid Photo Album with 26 Cabinet Photos
7 Celluloid Photo Album with 26 Cabinet Photos
Unknown location Unknown publisher Circa late 19th century, early 20th Hard cover Very good condition 
The celluloid picture albums are so pretty. This one has gilded page edges, a pictorial celluloid front cover and velvet over boards at spine and back.There is also a gold clasp which works beautifully. Inside the pages (heavy cardboard) are 26 cabinet photos and none at the back for carte de visites, so you could add. The sad part is that there is no way of finding out who these people are unless someone recognizes something or someone. The album measures 8-1/2" x 10-1/2. There are two tiny chips to the front, but you can't touch them. It's as smooth there as it is all over.
