Grif Teller - Pennsylvania Railroad 1932 - $40.00
Grif Teller (American),
Pennsylvania Railway poster; 17 3/4" x 24 1/2"
Signed and dated 1932 on the bottom right corner of the print.
The painting shows a great Giant of a locomotive barreling straight to the onlooker at great speed! Makes one wonder what it must have felt like to be a passenger in one of the many cars carried along at that pace. The strength of the massive Engine is very evident in this painting! This print would look absolutely fabulous mounted in a frame of that Golden Era of the Iron Giants!
Mounted on dark posterboard; the board looks of the same age as the print. Minor wrinkles in image and minor nibbles on border (as any unframed poster of this age would show). No sun damage, has not been near direct sunlight. Has a bit of a golden "patina"- from age and from having been in a smoker's home.
Folding Hair & Nail Kit - $10.00
Circa 1910-1930. This little kit is covered with a Cabbage Rose patterned Chintz. No need to carry a big handbag with this sweet item! The items inside are all celluloid: Fine comb, Cuticle pusher & Fingernail Cleaner. The mirror is beveled and in fine condition, as are all the other items in the kit. The fabric is worn at the corners, but not as worn as it should be for its age! The fabric is quite soft, smooth to the touch, and has a polished surface. The celluloid items are smooth and free of any celluloid disease, dirt, or crazing.
