c.1917 Kromo Gravure Trading Cards

Box 4 - 50 cards - Measure 2-1/8" x 3-7/16" - Detroit, MI

Kromo Gravure Box Sets 1-4Thank you so much to Larry Houghtalin who contacted me late in 2008 regarding a 4th box set of Kromo Gravure cards.  This was the first I'd heard of Set No. 4 and while I wasn't able to pry the cards away from Larry, he was kind enough to take the time to scan them all for us and allow me to share them. So, thanks very much, Larry!

 I give the date as about 1917, and while that is very likely the date for Box #1, the presence of Jackie Coogan probably sets this a little later (early 1920's most likely).  Thanks to Larry this page shows off all 50 cards out of Box #4, now we're going to have to see if we can find any anywhere!

I've yet to do more than make brief mention of these on the main Kromo Gravure page, but obviously the appearance of these calls for an overhaul somewhere down the line. 

As always, any names highlighted in blue will lead you directly to original biographies of that particular star written especially for this site.
