George Washington's Birthday Beistle Centerpiece
This George Washington's Birthday centerpiece was made in the U.S.A. by Beistle. It unfolds with a red, white, and blue accordion 1/2 basket on each side. There are notches and tabs to hold the basket open. I only tucked in one corner when taking these photos so I would not bend the tabs or notches more. One side of the diecut states "Patents - July 14, 1925 - July 27, 1926 - July 27, 1926 - Made in U.S.A. - The Beistle Co.". The diecut shows George cutting down the cherry tree. It is 8-3/8" tall x 7-1/2" wide x 1/4" deep when closed and 7-1/2" deep with both sides open.
This diecut has been used. There are light creases on the tabs but they are still very strong and hold perfectly.
