Cries of London - Gingerbread

    IMPORTANT NOTICE DO NOT ASK ME FOR THE VALUE - Here's why - I get about six gazillion emails each year asking me for the 'value' of these prints. Don't be such idiots! For This is a PRINT! There are a billion copies of it. It is unlikely to have a very high value at all - and you are unlikely to have an 'original print'. If you really want to know then take it in to a dealer - don't ask for a value from someone on the internet. I have published these for the sheer joy of sharing them with the 7 people in the world who apparently have not seen them - the other 5,999,999,993 apparently have and only want to know their value. If you have a genuine query about the history or the era then contact me otherwise If you are one of the morons out there who seem to think I have put up this site simply to provide you with a free appraisal service - you risk getting a very scathing message back from me.

    The picture is called Hot Spice Gingerbread, smoking hot. - Hot, Spiced gingerbread was one of the most popular sweetmeants of the time. Indeed, ginger, in various forms was greatly sought after, particularly because it was considered to be particularly wholesome. In addition ginger was also thought to have many valuable properties of a medicinal character, which no doubt helped its widespread sale.

    Although each call was probably quite individual this is one of them;
    Gingerbread! Hot Spiced gingerbread! Buy my gingerbread. Its all hot, nice smoking hot. Come buy my gingerbread, hot spiced gingerbread!
