Publisher Ed. Wolf

 No Text.

3" x 4 1/2"
dated 1882
 A Stock Trade Card whose theme and color scheme fits right in with Valentines.

The "Ed. Wolf" in question is likely Edward Wolf of the Wolf Brothers, who went on to form the International Art Publishing Company with brothers Isaac and Gustave, and Samuel Garre of the Art Lithographic Publishing Co., later in the 19th century. That company produced postcards. They are best known for their postcards illustrated by Ellen Clapsaddle.

Items marked by Ed. Wolf are rather rare. I have seen other cards that have had the same dimensions and have been similar in appearance, even having the same 1882 copyright date. Those like this one shown have been the only cards I have seen bearing this publishing name.
