Hong Kong: ca. 1910. Ephemera. A wonderful graphic on a fireworks packet label, the globe image floating in a sea of multicolored clouds. The fireworks were presumably for export to Australia, as the central image shows China in the upper left quadrant and Australia in the lower right quadrant. The image conveys a cooperation that continues today, albeit strained.
Printed in pink, blues, yellow and red, with an attractive stylized border. Text in Chinese at the top of the label. 5 7/8 x 11 5/8". Some very slight chips on the left & top margin. Very good condition. Item #26821
