This Japanese cardboard advertisement probably dates to the 1930s. The ad on he color side is for "Kurabu Ren Hamigaki" (basically, "Club Refined Toothpaste"), with a mention about the same brand's celluloid toothbrushes, while the two-color side is for "Utena Cold Cream". This card doesn't seem to have been cut from a box or something else, and so may have been part of a store display.
There is general wear and dustiness, with several smudges and a hand-penned notation on the color side as well as wear at the edges and corners, but there are no tears.

W4 3/16" (106mm) X H7 3/8" (187mm).

General Note about Shipping:

For all our items, we set the shipping according to the fastest and most economical method. Generally, we set it as Air Mail if the shipping charge will be around fifteen dollars or less, and as SAL (economy airmail) if it would be over fifteen dollars via regular airmail. Nonetheless, we are always happy to change shipping methods if faster (and thus more expensive) or cheaper (and thus slower) shipping is desired. The shipping options

We are glad to combine multiple items for shipping, and of course will discount some of the postage charges for each item after the first one. Please note that the shipping discount is not large for heavy items, but for small, light things we will discount the shipping charges by 40-100 percent, depending on how heavy it is and how it needs to be packed.

We ship at least once and very often twice a week, and so most of the time items will be in the mail within no more than 10 days after we have received payment. We also always send a brief note informing buyers when their items have shipped.

Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.
