19th Century Cabinet Card of Woman with Mirrors and Brushes on Dress

When I posted a similar cabinet card a few weeks ago, I thought that this form of late 19th century advertising was a complete anomaly, but apparently there was at least one other company that decided to cover a woman's dress with various tools of the trade.

This one is for Wood Bros. Pharmacy in Elmo, Missouri. The woman has bottles, brushes and mirrors all affixed to her dress. Currently available on eBay through seller "genest".
