  AUCTION OF VINTAGE BOOKMARKS
BOOKMARK AUCTION - How does it work?
The prices of the bookmarks on this page are being reduced on a weekly basis. Without exception
and gradually down to the bottom - until only the shipping costs are left! You may wait until your favourite
bookmark is low enough in price, however, it may be also gone before you can buy because others might
have been waiting as well. Thus, it is a sort of auction and you need also a little luck.
Please check out frequently to catch your favourite bookmark for an attractive price.
Good luck to everybody!

SET OF 4 VICTORIAN STOCK BOOKMARKS BY U.S. CARD CO., PROVIDENCE, RI - 1880-1890s
Beautifully illustrated animal bookmarks, complete set of 4 bookmarks. Stock bookmarks are mostly illustrated bookmarks produced
by card producers which have been offered to companies as a promotional item. The name and the address of the company have
been printed subsequently on the already printed bookmark sheets. Thus the card company was able to employ a well-known artist
to design the bookmarks with high expenses and sell the bookmarks to several companies to reduce the costs. The bookmarks shown here are sample bookmarks and they have probably served a representative of the card producer to show them to the clients.

Chromolithographed scraps with brilliant colours like these two were produced by using printing stones for each colour

at that time. Non-bookmarks are items like trade cards or postcards which are used as bookmarks though they have not
been produced for this purpose.

Europe. This company doesn't exist anymore. The still existing business Naville & Co. is a press distribution
agency with over 1200 points of sale in Romandy (the French speaking part of Switzerland). It can be guessed
that these bookmarks were produced in order of the house Badan and were distributed to public as a free
giveaway for customers of the Naville & Co., who had much more walk-in customers as Badan.

Set of 2 elegant WATERMAN / JIF BOOKMARKS (front & back) from 1929-1935 
Waterman Patrician fountain pen was introduced in 1929 and it was the first Waterman pen to receive a model
name instead of a number. What made the Patrician a great pen was its construction quality: it required more
than 300 handcrafted operations and was produced in relatively small numbers, not on a high-speed
assembly line

SET OF 3 SWISS SUCHARD CHOCOLATE & COCOA ADVERTISING BOOKMARKS FROM AROUND 1900
Very rare embossed, chromo-lithographed and diecut bookmarks from the turn of the 19th century.
The Swiss chocolate company started in 1826 in Neuchatel and was the largest chocolate producer at the end of
the century. The outer form of these bookmarks correspond to so-called stock or overprint bookmarks which were
produced by German companies in sophisticated processes to cover the demand for quality advertising book-
marks of the era from 1895 onward. They were produced as ready-made blank bookmarks which could be
(over)printed by the advertising text of divers companies
(courtesy of Georg Hartong: Overprint bookmarks, TBS News July 2014)
Our bookmarks here, however,  were specially designed for the company Suchard as can be recognized by the
use of the company name integrated in the illustrations.  Customized stock bookmarks were produced for very
large companies only and were rather rare as compared to the simply overprinted versions.
