About these Cards
24 card set issued out of England, 1926.
Each card measures 1-3/8" X 2-3/8 inches.
I haven't seen all of these yet, but they were so unusual that I couldn't pass on the small batch of cards shown on this page. Apparently, most of the actresses—or at least most of those I've seen—prefer small dogs that they can lift and hold. Young Norma Shearer is the extreme here. The reverse side of her card notes she is in "possession of the tiniest dog in the world. It is so small that it can be carried about in even a water tumbler." And that's what is shown on front!
