This is a rather localized item (Cleveland, Ohio area), but of interest to people who show horses, or have family members who did at one time.

It also includes a horse show prize list as a separate tri-fold brochure .Both items are very clean and the graphic on the cover of the main program is wonderful.Program measures 6-1/4"x9-1/4" and has 40 pages.

By: N/A

Price: $14.95

Publisher: Barberton, Ohio, Unknown: 1911

Seller ID: 1125

Condition: Very good


At first glance this appears to be a giant pig -- which it is. But it's not just any old pig. This pig belonged to O.C. Barber, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, who succeeded with many businesses before launching this early effort at agribusiness. The card is postmarked Barberton, Ohio July 27, 1911 and sent to Mr. Sherman Lee of Seville, Ohio. The message reads, "This is one of O.C. Barber's thoroughbred pigs. He is a big one, isn't he? Tom Bairstow." Very clean and nice and easy to read. Will arrive in plastic sleeve. View more info

Publisher: Detroit, Michigan, The Zenner-Raymond Disinfectant Company: 1898

Seller ID: 1284

Condition: Very good


The bright color of this ad and its matching envelope caught my attention immediately, but after reading it it occurred to me that I have never had anything produced by Zenner-Raymond until now. The ad is complete as you see it, printed only on the front, and fits inside the envelope which measures 3-1/2"x6". Love the bold exterior message: Zenoleum Sheep Dip Is Not Poisonous." The postmark reads Detroit April 28, 1898 -- the ad was created from an 1897 study conducted by the State Agricultural College at Fort Collins, Colorado. Nice addition to an agriculture collection View more info

Postcard Portuguese Couple in Unusual Cart

By: N/A

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Portugal, Unknow Publisher: Unknown Date

Seller ID: 1502

Condition: Very good


This is an unusual card from Portugal. A wealthy couple sits comfortably in wicker seats in a cart that looks as though it glides on runners like a sleigh. But why? No snow! Also, where does the driver sit? And which man IS the driver? Perhaps they just walk alongside the cart -- it's guaranteed to be in the slow lane! Overall, the card is charming, perhaps because of its oddities. It has not been used and will arrive in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Publisher: Unknown Location, Unknown publisher: No date, but early 20th century

Seller ID: 1919

Condition: Good-plus


This is without question the most ephemeral postcard ever. The body of the flamingo is covered with a variety of actual feathers in an array of colors. The card is very nice overall, but does show a few tiny soil marks at the area of the neck just next to the feathers. I don't dare try to do anything about it for fear of damage.Tthe only other fault is a small flat crease to left lower corner. Card has a one cent postage stamp, but it was never marked. There's no indication of date, but I do know one thing that helps. The recipient is Bertha Randall -- I had a lot of cards sent to her and almo... View more info

Crisp, beautiful card with sharp corners and no writing on divided back. Not postmarked. The back of the card offers this information: "Feeding time in the world's only oceanarium! Some of the hundreds of visitors are shown gathered on the top deck to watch the porpoises leap high out of the water to take food from the hand of the feeding attendant. Porpoises, being air-breathing mammals consequently have to come to the surface to breathe and some times in their eagerness to be fed will leap as high as 8 to 9 feet clear of the water.
