Lovely Vintage Merrick Thread Ad from the Late 1800’s

Free Vintage Spring Pictures and Clip Art

Welcome to Day 25 of 25 Days of Vintage Spring Pictures and Clip Art! HAPPY First Day of Spring!! 🙂

I couldn’t decide if this adorable Merrick Thread trade card ad should go into my Easter vintage image series or this spring series. I decided to keep it in the spring series because thread isn’t very Easter-ish. This late 1800’s trade card is one of my favorites – I really have a ‘thing’ for sewing antiques. Interestingly, this very thread and thread company was the subject of a Supreme Court ruling when J & P Coats tried to sue Merrick because they had a similar label on the end. J & P Coats didn’t get anywhere with it – considering the company name MERRICK THREAD CO. is right there on the outermost ring of the worded label. I have a hard time imagining that lawsuit making it to the Supreme Court in this day and age. 😉
