   This old Reward of Merit features a color litho scene of a young Victorian woman with a parrot, the surrounding ornate area printed with gold inks, age 1870's. It looks to have once been removed from a scrapbook on back, which was all the rage in the 19th century. A beautiful piece. Bachellor is an alternative spelling of Lillian's surname. Also see another Batchellor related piece here, found this with card.

Debra Clifford Ancestorville Genealogy      Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook.
