Ephermera at its best! Here is an amazing find from the Edwardian or 1920's era, still in its paper wrapper, a set of 6 printed place cards combining into napkin rings. An envelope printed with a charming ditty, gives the clue and instructions of what awaits inside.
The place cards / napkin rings are printed on card stock, in the Art Nouveau style of scrolls and flowers. There are 6 cards, each in a different color (red, gold, green, blue, lavender, and orange). Each card is slotted, (with one already folded), to show the how-to directions.
The name card measures 9-1/4" in length x 1-1/4" wide. At the center of each card, a plain oval for hand writing the name of each dinner guest. After the place card is folded at the proper points, the ring can be slipped over the cloth napkins.
Set is unused and in very nice condition. Some light foxing to the envelope.
There are two sets of 6 available. Buy 1 or both sets.
