1889 N122 Gail & Ax "Novelties - Girls on Objects" Near-Complete Set (23/25)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $540

Extremely attractive near-complete set of twenty-three (out of twenty-five) N122 Gail & Ax "Novelties - Girls on Objects" cards. This set consists of die-cut shapes, such as mirrors, sea shells, and playing cards, with an image of a woman set against a fancy background. All cards present as Excellent or better, with bold colors and flawless surfaces, but would technically grade more modestly due to various flaws on the reverse, including small spots of paper loss or glue residue. This is a superb near-complete set of this fascinating and unusual nineteenth-century set. Total: 23 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $540
