Treasure in the Attic: Old poster was used to generate salve's sales

March 28, 2011

Question: My mother received a poster from her mother around 1910. It's entitled, "The Afternoon Caller," by artist J.L.G. Ferris. Dated 1895, the poster was a freebie when purchasing a can of Cloverine salve from a door-to-door salesman. The framed poster hung in my parents' home up until 1958, the year I received it. It now hangs in my daughter's dining room. Do you have any idea of its value? - P.L.W., Vincent.
