Scottish Tartan Ware Birthday Book, C.1900

A very nice tartan ware covered ‘Little Brighteye’s Birthday Book’. This book is inscribed “To Gerty from mother, Oban, Scotland August 1900”. On the front page the copyright date is 1899.

The small transfer scene in the oval frame is of the bay in Oban, Scotland. The tartan ware plaid is from the M’Pherson clan. This charming small book has a cloth spine with the front and back covers covered in tartan ware that has had protective layers of lacquer. This small book measures: 4 1/2 inches high, 3 3/4 inches wide and is 1/2 inches thick.

The book was presented to the keeper in 1900 and has writings up to 1930s. The dates have inscriptions to list marriages, birthdays and passings stopped near the time that WWII was beginning. This is a lovely souvenir and piece of recorded history for the family. On the facing page to the date of the event there are ‘phrases’ to read and wonder by.
