French Trade Card
Q This attractive chromolithographed trade card is for a haberdasher and milliner in Toulouse. It seems likely that the cart drawn by the donkeys is associated with the shop advertised but what was contained in the large white sack behind the driver? Feathers seem unlikely but straw for bonnets is a possibility. Does anyone know the answer?
