This rare Victorian trade card pokes fun at Oscar Wilde and the Aesthetic movement of which he was champion. Our Oscar is shown dwarfed beside Jumbo the elephant, made famous when he was purchased by P. T. Barnum. It’s said he stood 4 meters (over 13 feet) tall. He is the mascot of Tufts University in the Boston area, where his taxidermied remains were on view for a time until they were destroyed in a fire.
