Today's #TradeCardTuesday is quite the sticky situation. This advertising card was produced by the Tenexine Company of Boston, Massachusetts to promote its line of Egyptian Te-nex-ine glue. The item is undated, but was probably created between 1880 and 1913.

This card is part of Hagley Library's Fingerman ephemera collection (Accession 2009.213), a collection of mixed-format ephemeraassembled by collectors Arlene and Gerald Fingerman. Advertising cards and labels compose a large portion of this collection, but it also includes billheads, blotters, bookmarks, business cards, catalogs, checks, envelopes, flyers, letterheads, newsletters, packaging, postcards, and stamps.

The collection has not been digitized in its entirety, but you can view a curated selection of materials from it online now in our Digital Archive. Just click here!
