Scope of Collection
The Albany County Historical Association’s collection of Acorn Stove trade cards, distributed during the late 19th century by Rathbone, Sard & Co., were used to advertise Acorn Stoves to potential customers. They are color lithographs and depict images of men, woman, and children. Our collection also includes a trade card printed with an 1881-1882 calendar.
