Antique Chromolithograph English Die Cuts Scrap Girls & Boys


Add to Cart:

Please note that this is real, full size antique scrap, not a miniature.

20 years ago my grandfather gave me these exquisite chromolithograph die cut scrap pictures he'd kept in his cellar since the 1920's and 1930's.

My grandfather was a candy maker and bought these embossed scrap pictures to use inside panorama Easter eggs. He gave me the ones he still had left. He told me that after the war, these pictures became impossible to find because all of the factories had been bombed during WW II.

If you've never seen a panorama Easter Egg, it was an egg, made of sugar or chocolate that was hollow. A round hole was left in one end and covered with plastic or glass - if you looked inside the egg, you saw a beautiful scene that looked 3-D filled with pictures of flowers and children playing and all sorts of things!

The scrap pictures themselves are absolutely exquisite. This sheet is of darling little children - girls & boys!

The top row has three pretty little girls - two sets of each. The first is in a demure blue dress, red and white striped ankle socks and little white shoes. She's holding a bouquet of flowers and has more flowers in a basket on the grass. The middle girl is wearing a sunshine blue dress with a white petticoat peeking out. She's also holding flowers and looks like she's about to curtsey! The last little girl is in a pretty red & whit dress with matching red shoes and white anklets. She's holding a big bouquet too!

There are two sets in the bottom row of three little boys. The first boy is wearing gray knee pants, a yellow shirt with a jacket & ascot tie. He's holding a bouquet of flowers - maybe for a little girl?? The middle boy is all in blue with white shoes and blue socks. The last little boy is all in red and white with a brown tie and white knee socks. He's holding a big blue bouquet.

These are pretty enough to be framed if you're not an ephemera collector or would make absolutely adorable and unique paper dolls !

The sheet measures 9 1/2" long and 6 1/2" wide. Each child is about 3" high x 1 5/8" wide at the bottom. This sheet was imported from England. It's marked MLP printed in black inside an oval as the company name and is also marked with the #776.
