This vintage, celluloid covered ink blotter is a 1921 calendar as well as an advertisement for the B-D CO Thermometer which is shown on the front. The Becton, Dickinson & Co. of New Jersey made other medical items such as Yale Needles and Ace Bandages. The months September through December are on the front and inside on the first blotter page it has March through August of 1921 and January through June 1922. It has one other blotter sheet besides the back sheet, all in unused condition. It was made by the Whitehead & Hoag Co. of Newark, New Jersey. It is all held together with two celluloid covered button paper fasteners. This would be nice framed for a wall hanging.
Overall it is in very nice condition with no damage to the celluloid and the blotter pages show only light soiling and edge wear. It measures about 7 5/8" by 3".
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
