About this Item

Probably a salesman's sample album showing original designs for napkins or handkerchiefs, all with decorative, generally colorful and representational artwork. N.d., circa 1930s. Oblong album, 29 by 34 cm. 17 samples, including the one on the front cover, and one sample which is essentially repeated, with minor variations. Stylistically there is considerable variety, from folk art-ish and cartoon-ish to more fluid and fluent Art Deco stylized imagery. We don't know whether Méry was the artist or the name of the company, or both, but clearly these are samples of commercial artwork. That is not pejorative, for the images are delightful, evocative and even humorous and fun at times. Here there is the further intensification of the original watercolors. The papers the large square watercolors are laid on are brittle, as the norm of such albums. Chipping to thw wax paper pastedown on the cover. Bookseller Inventory # 005145

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
