An original advertising showcard for Ullathorne's - The Only Heel Ball Which Gives A Permanent Polish.

Heel balls were black waxy materials used by shoemakers and others to blacken the edges of heels and soles of boots and shoes in days gone by. 

This rare showcard with it's beehive illustration has the usual scuffs, marks and scratches as expected from a well used item of this age and material but still displays well. 

Printed by Henry Blacklock & Co.

Circa 1910
