|The picture shows a view of all (17) Different Small Old Celluloid Novelty Items in this lot. There is a wide variety in this accumulated lot. These items are not dated but they are all old. Included in this lot are the following items:|
There is a hand held celluloid fan. It has (20) blades with many piercings and painted flowers. It is all here, but apparently the ribbon that was once in it is gone and someone was redoing it but never finished. It looks like the flowered blades are currently out of order. There appears to be no damage and it will look great once again after it is assembled correctly. The fan is not marked and the maker is unknown.
There is a large clothing or shoe button hook. It has a celluloid handle with a metal hook. It is marked ''PARISIAN IVORY - TRADE MARK - FRANCE''.
There is a long letter opener with a metal blade and a celluloid handle. It has some advertising on the handle that is very faint. It reads ''COMPLIMENTS OF FAIRCHILD BROS. & FOSTER''.
