When The Cats Away Mice Will Play - Penny Farthing Bicycle - Trade Card, c. 1800s


(3 x 5 In) This is an original antique trade card from the 1800s. It shows two Victorian women helping a third balance atop a penny farthing or high wheeler bicycle, "When the Cats Away Mice Will Play". The back advertised Arbuckles' Ariosa Coffee- Cost More and is worth more than other brands of coffee.

The card is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, some paper stuck to the back side.
