Victorian Image From Parker’s Tonic: Sweet Little Girl In A Pitcher

Very sweet Victorian image. A very large one at that: 8 x 5 1/2 inches. I got this one recently on eBay, This colorful die-cut was too cute to pass. It’s an advertising for Parker’s Ginger Tonic by Hiscox & Co.

This tonic claim?: “So powerful and pervasive is the action of Parker’s Tonic that it attacks and dissipates chronic diseases”. Well there’s your miracle cure. Not to mention that this company also produce the “famous” Parker’s Hair Balsam that “never fails to restore the youthful color to gray hair”. Just that. Where have you been all my life?

Anyway back to this piece of Victorian image. On the back it boost both products I mentioned and also advertise that one of these pitchers can be obtain for only 6 cents (6 one cent postage stamps). I wonder if the real thing was as beautiful as that paper pitcher? And how big was it? I need to check out if I can find this piece on eBay. Must be rather rare.

You are free to use this Victorian image on your website, blog and even POD. This is a public domain image, free to use.
