Mrs. Stewart's Bluing was one of the products the company I worked for represented. It was a very slow seller, since it was one of those old-timey products, but it worked. In fact I have a bottle that I use occasionally.

Hey Vince -


I saw one of those (the red/white/blue one) at the Grand Rapids APS show a while back.

Was seriously considering buying it, but got side-tracked....(more than once! LOL)

Wish I'd gone back for it.

When I was in school, we used that product to "grow" crystals on a piece of aluminum foil. I have not seen it on shelves for years.

It's still around. You can buy it on Amazon though now it comes in a modern plastic bottle.

re: Mrs. Stewart's Bluing

Bumping up this thread started by Vinman over three years ago. I recently filled out my set of Mrs. Stewart's Bluing adverting sheets. When I started to acquire these I thought there were only three sheets. I acquired the first three and then discovered there are two more for a total of five. The last two issued in 1942 and 1944 were the creations of Luther Ford's son who was a stamp collector and thought the sheets were a good advertising medium. Luther Ford of Minneapolis, MN bought the rights to the product from Albert Stewart in 1883.

Vinman posted images of sheets #1 and #2, so I'll start with sheet #3 of the original series and then sheets #4 & #5 issued in the 1940s.

The sheet with the 'Penny Blue' also exists with the correct Penny Black.

There are a number of varieties too, including missing Penny Black/Blue.

A fascinating and classical series of Cinderella stamps.
