Amami Film Stars

Issuing Company: Prichard & Constance (Wholesale) Ltd., Makers of Amami Shampoos
Country of Issue: England
Year of Issue: 1930s
Color/B&W: Brown Tone
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 3 1/2" x 5"
Issued as insert with what product: Shampoo

Notes: Checklist probably incomplete. Unnumbered. Not all of the subjects in this set are film stars. Some definitely are, as some refer to films they have been in. It appears that Amami Shampoo ran a series of Beauty "contests" in a British newspaper and many of these subjects were either winners or contestants.

In the checklist below, the two unidentified cards do contain identifications on the cards, but are too hard to read from small scans on the internet. In the list, the subjects with "(Miss)" shown, are described as such on the card.

Thanks to Eric Panther and Richard Minns for help with this checklist.
