Incroyable de Paris Shoe Sales


1890?  Two monochrome hidden-picture trade cards advertising "Incroyable de Paris" stitched shoes for women and men.  4⅜ x 3".  Paris: Imp. F. Hermet.  $14 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '18.

TH and "The Old Man and the Ass."  I think I have found the hidden picture in these; click on the separate link-opener to see it resolved.  At first I thought these were most likely stock trade cards, but reflection on the fact that the advertisement takes the complete verso and two parts of the front of either card, I decided that they more a particular creation of Incroyable de Paris.  Incroyable offers very inexpensive stitched shoes.  Might these contrast with wooden shoes?
