D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Trade Card: Mother dog to left, three eager pups to right at dog house. Mother with mouse under paw. Along upper edge “Take Wood’s Sasparilla 100 Doses One Dollar.”

Currier & Ives produced an estimated 200 different trade cards. The cards were kept in stock and then later imprinted for local businesses that used the cards as advertisements. Many of the cards are smaller, though less detailed versions of prints produced by the firm.
