This artist creates a Cuisinart of abstract mirror designs borrowing bits from Victorian, Edwardian, paisley, and art nouveau. She also draws orphan cars, and adapts a few very old ads. Most of her work is hand drawn with twists, vines & Celtic knots.

I scanned this ad from a 1907 magazine because the combination of horror and humor deserves to be part of history.
I scanned this ad from a 1907 magazine because the combination of horror and humor deserves to be part of history. Along with Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben, little Miss Kornelia Kinks was apparently designed to appeal to a white audience by depicting an offensively caricatured African-American girl.
As to where they sold this stuff-damned if I know. I can't see white OR black people wanting to buy any product advertised like this. Which may be why Ben and Jemima survived as advertising icons, and Miss Kinks has been all but lost in the dustbin of American history. Korn Kinks were sold from 1890 through 1910. They had a lot of promotional items including postcards, and decorated tins.
