A Dupont Gun Powder tray (circa 1915) with Osthaus English Setter picture. Text is hard to read but has green "DuPont Powders" logo at top left and in black "Generations Have Used du Pont Powders" at foot.

The second image is a page from my wife's exhibit of English Setters (on my website) which shows matching cover design and card by Du Pont showing Osthaus images.

Third image has very early advertising cover in colors with an English Setter.

    Back when I collected postcards there were two cards that always eluded me. One was a signed Kate Greenway and the other was the DuPont Dogs. Very,very nice !

    Savoychina1 - Thanks. I bought the complete set at auction in the 80s and it was around $1,500 even then.
