Ariosa Coffee Victorian Card ~ Free Graphics

by Julie J on October 15, 2014

Here is a Victorian advertising card for Arbuckle’s Ariosa coffee. The front of the card includes an illustration of four birds. Three of the birds are nestled in deep grass and one bird is about to fly off (or is perhaps returning to the others in the grass). From the information included on the back of this card, I assume the birds are quail.
