Treasures From The Washington Book Show
Here are a few of the items purchased at the Washington book show .The Art Nouveau Renate plate is hand colored. Does anyone recognize the artist's cipher? Richard Schimmelpfeng Just sent me the information requested.
Lew, the Renate plate is by Armin von Folkersam, 1861-1917. The "o" has an umlaut, i.e. Foelkersam.
On impulse I purchased this1920's direct mail flyer for Davies Super Dry Cleaning in Evanston Illinois.
The Fisher rebus caliing card is from the 1890's
This is another mystery plate .Does anyone recognize it?
