This reverse paint advertising piece is in colors of red, black, tan and white mostly.

The image is of a couple in their rocking chairs in front of a fireplace, the person on the left appears to be reading, the one on the right is working with a spinning wheel.

This was advertising for Dr. Catherine Robinson, D.C. of Zearing, Iowa. Often given as gifts to their clients, these have become collectibles over the years.

Reverse painting was a popular form of decoration for many years, it’s a pretty neat art form.

It is small, measuring about 5.25” across x 4.25” up and down.

At the bottom, there is a little metal tray that slides down that held a calendar, it still has the month of December 1939 in it.
In remarkable condition.
