Morning fellow holiday enthusiasts! Some wonderful finds, click on the photos and links....So much to show and tell you about...
up, a 1956 Christmas ad for Prince Matchabelli perfume..because every
woman deserves a crown...and white gloves...and fur...and pearls. (And some would say now more than ever!) See
more from Flickr Friend Salty Cotton's outstanding vintage Christmas
magazine ads collection here. It's followed by an oldie but goodie always worth looking at again....
From a previous auction at SERIOUSTOY.COM, the 1890 Loughlin Bros PRETTY VILLAGE #2. Really outstanding lithography--although one house was missing from the set. And finally, courtesy of LOC, Bain News Service, "AT Christmas, A Show Window"--photo taken between ca. 1910 and circa 1915---and doll collectors will be in heaven.
Sliced and diced into close-ups for your viewing pleasure. Again, click on the photos and links.
