Vermont advertising fan, Putnam Fadeless Dyes and Tints, hand held, screen is lithograph. The shield shaped colorful fan screen size is 7" by 7 3/8". On the front is the "proud" peacock and the verso has advertising for Putnam Dyes and Tints and Putnam Dry Cleaner. Marked on the bottom right is "Printed in U.S.A." At the bottom left is Patent No. 2052180. Circa 1937. At the top is "Compliments of Donahue's Cut Rate Quality, Courtesy, Service Poultney Vermont." I believe this to be a standard fan printed for Putnam (Monroe Chemical Co.) and then offered to stores which were retailing their products. The fan handle is tapered wood and fastened to the fan screen with staples. Colors are good and edges are crisp. However, there is a crease across the middle, visible from the backside. See photos of other Putnam Due fan we have listed and collection of advertising fans.
