A bird in a gilded cage / [Joe Natus?]. Lambert: 120. 190-.
Often known as "Pink Lamberts" because of the
dye used in their manufacture, Lambert
cylinders, manufactured by the Lambert Co. of Chicago, came in a variety
of shades of pink as well as purple, brown and black. The earliest issues, released
in 1901, were the first cylinders made of celluloid, which made them much
less breakable than wax cylinders. Lambert cylinders were produced until
1905 and are scarce today.
