Lot of 5, 1920s Movie Lobby Cards - For Restoration
click for more pictures for item 56565d
We came across these as part of an estate that we bought some items from. We purchased the contents of a shed and these were inside that shed.
These have significant damage to them but we did some research and apparently, there are paper restorers who can restore these to a much better condition. Is it worth it? Not sure but there are some pretty neat and rare lobby cards here. The majority of these are from the late 1920s and 1930 - just when talkies were replacing silent films in the theatres. Many of these silent film stars were the biggest in show biz at the time but could not make the successful transfer to pictures with sound.
We don't know what these are worth but consider them for what they are, damaged relics from a long time ago. We could not find any equivalents of these specific lobby cards on the Google searches we did but that does not mean there are not any others out there. We thought there would at least be something.
These are original Lithographs which makes them that much more interesting.
Amount of damage varies greatly and includes dirt, stains, tears and in many cases, entire pieces are missing completely.
