In Box 3, Folder 19.
Originally catalogued as French, by D. Hutinet, but the source of this attribution is unclear.
Daniel Low was a jeweler and seller of diamonds, watches, jewelry and silverware, according to imprints on related cards.
Summary:
Verso is blank. Card apparently has been cut down to remove the advertiser's name and address, which appear on similar cards in collection and which are slightly larger. The whole series of cards uses an international theme, with costumed figures and images of stamps to reinforce the theme. No evidence of a "D. Hutinet."
