LOT/2 1890-1910 MERKEL MOTOR CYCLE & LOVELL DIAMOND CYCLES ADS ADVERTISING RARE:
$27

LOT OF 2 ADVERTISING PIECES, BOTH PRINTED ON VERSOS. TONING AND EDGEWEAR, THE RARE MERKEL MOTOR HAS SOME SOIL AND CREASING AND CORNER LOSS BUT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF ANY MERKEL LITERATURE VERY DESIRABLE.
#1 MERKEL MOTORMerkel Motor Cycles Approx. 6 ¾”x4 ¼” card with rounded corners, some creases and closed tears. Illustration of the side view of a Merkel Motor Cycle “Built by The Merkel Mfg. Co. Milwaukee Wis. Verso is the front view of the cycle with features including single lever control, frame exhaust muffler, steel rear pully, etc. Reliability Simplicity…… Mechanically Correct with special inducements to agents. I can’t be sure if this was an advertising card only or part of a larger piece. There is no evidence of a staple or string tie so likely a stand alone card. I was unable to find much information regarding this company other than confirming the existence from about 1903-1907 at the outside. One source said 1905-07 but I did find earlier advertisements so I am extending it to longer time frame. Scarce illustration of this early short lived motor cycle.
#2 LOVELL DIAMOND CYCLES SMALL AD PROBABLY FROM A BOOK AS THERE IS A LISTING OF LOVELL'S LITERATURE SERIES ON THE VERSO. EVENLY TONED AND CLEAN UNDATED, BUT PROBABLY1890'S.
