(3 1/4 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original antique Burrow-Giles Lith. Co. trade card from the 1880s. It shows the calamity that arises when a Victorian house-wife forgets to lock out the goat after polishing her stove with Rising Sun Stove Polish. "Mrs. Murphy, Did I Not Tell You if you Used The Rising Sun Polish to Keep Out the Goat."


Royalty the Rising Sun,
In the east on fiery car,
Strong his daily course to run,
Is with welcomes hailed afar.
Nature with his radiance bright,
Glowingly her form arrays;
Sings her songs of sweet delight,
Unisonant in his praise
Nations dwelling far and near
See with joy his golden beams,
Throwing back dark night, appear,
Over plains and hills and streams,
Vividly his beams suggest
Every bright and cheerful thing;
Perfect, of its kind the best,
One, the POLISH that I sing,
Lo! afar you find it famed,
It the praise of all hath won;
So this Polish has been named,

The card is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, general light stains.
