About this work


No. 18 in a series of 22 cards issued by the Dr. Jayne Company, probably in the 1880s. The cards were published one a year for 22 years. This card shows a young girl in a frilly pink cape having her palm read by an old gypsy woman in a red hood and grey, fur-trimmed cape over a table with a green cloth on which playing cards, coins and books are lying. An owl is on a perch behind her and a tabby cat in a basket in front of the table. The card advertises Dr. Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge, Dr. D. Jayne's Expectorant (containing opium) and Dr. Jayne's Sanative Pills. These were supposed to cure general debility, worms, fever, ague, bronchial or lung troubles, cold, cough, sore throat, pleurisy and whooping cough.
