The Victorian Scrap

The Golden Era of the Printed Relief

From the 1870s to the early 1900s scraps or reliefs brought endless hours of joy and pleasure to both adults and children. They were bought for pocket money and cherished, like hidden treasure, to be enjoyed and dreamed over.

Albums were full of many types of reliefs which ranged from animals, flowers, clowns, politicians, postmen, policemen, clowns and a great many other subjects of all kinds and sizes.

The sheer imagination of the printers, artists and designers never cease to surprise the present day collector.
