Here is a group of FOUR, brightly colored wreath decals, just in time for the holidays! They are window transparencies -- unused and gorgeous! All in PRISTINE condition, "New Old Stock" and complete with their paper separators, along with the manufacturer name and directions for using them.
They are decals, a trademarked type called TRACO TRANSPARENCY.
The manufacturer was Frank Paper Products of Detroit, Michigan. We could not find out much about this company, but Lewis Frank was listed in the 1921 Lockworth Directory of Paper, Stationery and Allied Trades - so these are earlier 20th century decorations.
Below the wreaths is stamped TRAVER CORPORATION CHICAGO -- in 1924, the Traver Tool Company opened. I could not find how Frank and Traver may have worked together to produce and market these decals, but from the markings, that is suspicious.
I remember as a child we would slip decals like these into a pan of warm water, slide them off the paper backing and position them on our kitchen windows. Of course they could not be reused, and had to be scraped off the windows once the holidays were over.
SIZE is approximately 7 inches across.
A great find for any vintage holiday decoration lover -- especially those that were made with no intention of being reused next year!
