These large format cigarette cards of paintings by Arthur Wardle were issued by John Player in the 1930s. Each original, vintage card is mounted onto a black background and completed with an off-white, acid-free, double mount in a chunky, solid wood black frame, fitted with crystal clear acrylic ’glass’ and ready to hang.

Arthur Wardle (1864-1949) was well known for his detailed paintings of dogs that perfectly capture the character of each breed. It is believed that he was self-taught and at the age of just 16 he had his first work accepted for exhibition at the Royal Academy in 1880, where over his lifetime he exhibited 113 works.
