La Lime Qui Dure, Nicholson, U.S.A.

<< >>
Description (Brief)
Flat, rectangular card advertising the Nicholson File Company of Providence, R.I. It has a red front with green border and an image of a nail file with a product box. The reverse is white with red and black print, and has a calendar for 1937. This was likely an ad for a French-speaking country, as the front reads, "La Lime Qui Dure" and "Une Lime Appropriée Pour Tout Travail" meaning "The File that Lasts" and "A File Suited for All Work."
