A Pyography pattern ad and other Misc Gibson Ads and Ephemera

Flattr this!

I found this advertisement for a Gibson Girl pyography pillow to be most interesting. This ad promises to send the buyer a Naan Plush Pillow Top in gold, tan, or light green, stamped with the Gibson girl design shown and ready for burning! This also has a special offer for a pyography kit for only $1.65. Sold by Thayer and Chandler, Chicago IL.

I wonder if any of these designs, finished or unfinished, still exist?

Also pictured is an advertisement for a series of Gibson prints, featuring the double “Telling His Fortune”, suitable for framing.

Again, a sketch of “The Flirt”, and a color portrait sketch.

Finally, a photograph of the artist himself, Charles Dana Gibson, at work in his office.

These were all on the CD that my boyfriend’s dad dropped by last week.

About The Author

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
