12 ANTIQUE HALLOWEEN POSTCARDS WOLF CO

Item Description:

12 Original Early 20th c. Collectible Halloween Postcards. All were published by the Wolf Co. of Philadelphia. This firm was founded by the brothers Edward, Isaac, and Gustave Wolf in 1879. They became leading importer, publisher, and manufacturer of art novelties in the United States. They were also well known for their advertising work in chromolithography as well as fancy embossing. They eventually established a branch in Berlin to do much of their lithographic printing. They became a large publisher of holiday and greeting cards, but in 1895 they and the Art Lithographic Publishing Co. founded the International Art Publishing Co. as a subsidiary to take over their postcard and souvenir production. Edward Wolf and Isaac Wolf, Jr. would remain Directors of the Philadelphia firm. Ellen H. Clapsaddle, who had been contributing work to their subsidiary, was hired by Wolf & Co. in 1906 as a full time illustrator. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate
