The Cascarets Candy Cathartic trade card
is shown above (the before image)
and below (the consequence)!
It is a Mechanical card, in that SAND
is the device which moves...
It fills the chamber pot that the child is sitting on.
It is also a Metamorphic, or Before and After, trade card.
The obverse shows the constipated child.
Flip it over and you can watch the SAND flow into the pot..
The Product (Cascarets) Worked!
Because the action in this trade card so obviously
mimics the actions of having taken the candies...
I think it is safe to say ths is a Privately Issued trade card.
Cascarets most likely spent a hefty portion
of their allocated advertsing budget
to have this card made.
The card consists of TWO, heavy stock paper boards -
Where a liner with sand is held.
The paper stock is die-cut with an opening
to show the SAND.
ALL IT TOOK, WAS A LITTLE INGENUITY!
