Music Boxes Paillard New York Victorian Folding Diecut ChromoTrade Card
Paillard Music Boxes Victorian Folding Diecut Trade Card. An exceptionally lovely folding trade card for M. Of New York, "Manufacturers and Importers of Musical Boxes". The lid of the diecut box-shaped card lifts to reveal the inner workings of the box and its "playlist". The lid was lifted once too often and is now detached, much like so many actual 19th century music box lids after a few too many sherries and a round of rambunctious parlor games.
Hinge cleanly split so the card is now in two parts. Removed from an album, with glue points on the blank back. IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OVERSEAS BUYERS, PLEASE NOTE.
