 Hi Mick,

I like your "Weight's" enamel, superb image. This "Weight's" showcard posted was exhibited at the Player's exhibition at Nottingham Castle some years back. It has a similar theme (Carnival - Circus) to my two die-cut showcards at beginning of this posting.

 Hi Mick G

Your right it is late 1920's The "Weight's" one posted is another by the well known illustrator Tom Brown and dated 1907 - 1908.

 These are the last pictures I have of the Player's  "Weight's" cigarette brand, but fairly certain there would be other's out there.

 This is another Player's "Weights" die-cut showcard recently purchased at Elsecar. This one is dated 1916 and produced by Mardons of Bristol. It just shows how popular this particular brand of cigarettes was, with such a variety in advertising.

 Another Player's "Weights" by that well known illustrator T Browne sent to me for posting by Dave (Broadie). Interesting text on the rear dated 1910 and from Player's archives.Would be nice in a frame.
