American Toy Marble Co. Letter

Recommended Posts

A cool letter from American Toy Marble Co. dated February 1899. From A.L. Dyke general manager. This letter is really unique in that it is marketing marbles for girls.

The letter reads:

Feb. 2, /99

Dear Sir:-

We are writing you in reference to our new penny marble, in fancy colors, and of which we are sending you a sample via this email.

This marble is bought largely by little girls to bounce on the walk. We call this marble our #7 Fancy colored bowler, packed in bags of fifty at $4.00 per M. A barrel will hold 60 bags.

Would be pleased to have you give them a trial,


American Marble & Toy
