Beautiful covers here. I really like them when they are with a fancy design.

I have been collecting the Canadian ones for a number of years now and they were discussed on a previous thread at:

Sure is nice to see others as well.

I will have to look up my US and other foreign advert covers.

Regarding the White Rock Water cover from 1914, do you mean to tell me that there was bottled water that far back?

Even though this stamped envelope is mint, it is effectively demonitized as it has printing in areas not currently allowed by the DMM specs.

Smauggie: Here's a bit of history about the addressee of your Michigan Stove Co. cover addressed to J. & J.G. Low Company of Chelsea, Massachusetts:


Quote:
Situated in Chelsea, Massachusetts, this tile company produced very high quality earthenware pictorial tiles between 1877 and 1907. The company was founded by John Gardner Low, an artist, who had trained in Paris, but who was a native of Massachusetts. He started his ceramic work in the Chelsea Keramic Art Works but soon founded his own business in partnership with his father, John Low. Thus the company was called the J. & J.G. Low Art Tile Company. During its inception, the company included the talents of George Robertson, one of the family members of the Chelsea Keramic Art Works. Most Low tiles are marked on the back with date and copyright as well as with the title of the image.

One of the best artists working at Low was Arthur Osborne (1855-1942) a designer and low relief sculptor active there during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. He emigrated to the U.S. from England to become Low's chief modeler. His works are sometimes marked A.O. on the back of Low art tiles. Osborne was born in Faversham, Kent in 1855 and emigrated to join the firm in Chelsea in 1879. He departed America in 1898, leaving the Low Company in order to start his own business in Faversham, England. Osborne there produced plaques called "Ivorex" for many years before he died in 1942.
