Sales Demonstration Card Set for Eagle Old Dutch Process Pure White Lead Paint.
Eagle-Pitcher Lead Co.
n.d. (ca. 1920)
Set of sixteen 3" x 4" glossy paint chip cards and two transparent house cards in a stamped brown leather pouch.
A scarce and interesting sales tool from the Eagle-Pitcher Lead Co., makers of Eagle Old Dutch Process Pure White Lead paint. The salesman would take out a transparency of a house that looked similar to the customer's home, and lay it over each paint card to show them what the house would look like painted with that color. The back of each paint card is printed with the name of the color and information about the tints used to produce it. A wonderful and unusual pocket-size sales kit in great condition!
