Silk Fan
According to Cynthia Fendel (info) 28 May 2007:
"Your Cliff House fan can be easily dated between 1904-1909, since I have many 1904 St. Louis World's Fair fans in that exact style.
These fans can be described as a Japanese fixed fan with a printed silk leaf stretched over a metal frame, with a black lacquer stick."


Blue Oyster Cult

Sample Cigar Box Label
This label was a sample label included in a book to show merchants labels that could be purchased for the inside cover of cigar boxes.
