Singer Ad Card

Ah, the wonder of owning a Singer Sewing Machine in the 1920s!  I love this trade advertising card - mostly because of the gorgeous yellow warbler... but also because the ad promises you can make the dress of your dreams in one "happy afternoon!"  Just love that.  The original card measures 4.5 by 6 inches.  Note that at that size, the egg is depicted at "natural size" and the warbler is at "3/4 size."  Isn't that sweet?
