DIXONS STOVE POLISH LG. CHROMO AD BLACK AMERICANA
This is a wonderful large 16 by 14 inch chromo ad. for Dixons Carburet of Iron Stove Polish. It was published in 1858 by Sarony Major & Knapp a famous large New York city Lithography firm. I believe this was a proof print as it came out of a large scrap book we bought years ago that was all prints from this firm. It seemed to be a job book with things they had been doing. This is early for a nice color chromo print in a large size like this and the subject matter of the African American Slave Nanny trying to Make the Young white child Black is as good as it gets.
