MetadataShow full item record
Three blotters almost 4" x 9" for the months of October, 1926; August, 1927; and October, 1927. The blotters advertise "Remembrance Advertising." Apparently the maker of this series is C.W. Bloom of Brown & Bigelow on Milk Street in Boston. $36.69 from Carolyn Dias of Norfolk, VA, through eBay, August, '02.
Each long landscape-formatted blotter has a fable on the left. The October, 1926, blotter is a second copy. I had the blotter already. August presents a lovely crow in peacock feathers, with the moral "Borrowed feathers do not make fine birds." October features a bear and a wolf. The latter has a chicken stuffed under his jacket. The moral here is "Honesty is the best policy." I have no idea from which fable this scene or moral may have been supposed to come. The specifics of "Remembrance Advertising" enumerated earlier are no longer mentioned. I am getting close to bringing together the whole year of Bloom blotters!
