This piece of vintage ephemera is a salesman's sample for a promotional calendar company. The embossed frame art print pictures two lovely women in flowing gowns in a nature setting. One woman holds a lyre, the other has a bouquet of flowers at her hip. The scene is framed in a gilded, embossed frame. This antique calendar art would be part of a set of calendars presented to a customer for their promotional advertising calendar order. A paper monthly calendar would be printed with the company's name and attached to the bottom open rectangle in this wall hanging. Vendors would give these promotional calendars to customers during the Holiday season to use in the coming year.
This lovely vintage ephemera piece was intended as a wall hanging and would have hung by a ribbon or string through the top hole. The calendar measures approximately 11 7/8 inches tall and 7 5/8 inches wide. It is in very good vintage condition with some mild soiling as is to be expected of a piece this age and a small crease on the bottom right corner (see photos). The bottom of the print is marked "Printed in Germany" with the number "62788". The back of the calendar has no reference numbers. This special piece of vintage ephemera will be shipped sandwiched between heavy cardboard and mailed First Class shipping unless otherwise requested. Because of the delicacy of this item insurance is required and will be reflected in the shipping price.
An amazing German print for giving as a gift for Mom or to frame to accent any home decor.
