About this work


This is a novelty cut-out calendar for 1897 from Lever Brothers advertising Sunlight Soap. Our copy has already been cut out and pasted together. It looks like a cupboard made from light wood with a chair in front on a red carpet. When the doors of the cupboard are opened they have a calendar for 1897 printed on their backs. Three shelves of crockery and jars of jam are revealed (printed in black). There is a glowing testimonial on the reverse and instructions for using the soap for cleaning clothes.


[Port Sunlight] : Lever Brothers, 1897.
