Thank you. It kind of reminds me of old currency. I am a little surprised that they messed up the date on the card.Amazing! The rarest business card I have is from the ‘50’s and is for a tattooer in Chicago. Not as old or as pretty as this though
You have got to tell us how it lathers.sarimento1 - Your shaving pictures are awesome. They'd look great in a 'coffee table' book.
Here's a puck of that famous 'Yankee Soap' everyone talks about, though I think this one was made about twenty years or so after the J.B. Williams & Co. business card was printed. View attachment 1325581
EXCELLENT!! Love the price list!!This is the oldest 'Williams' collectible in my collection. The 3"X5" card has an incorrect date of establishment (1845) printed on the front. The flip side of the card has a price list and makes mention that J.B. Williams & Co. has been in business for thirty years. View attachment 1325440 View attachment 1325441
I was going to ask this yesterday. This is pre LLC. Companies were partnerships or pooled investors. It looks to like the Williams brothers wanted to go their separate ways and J.B. found some investors to buy them out.i wonder if there was some sort of corporate re-org in 1845.
originally company was advertised as williams & bros.
