Vintage Pantone

colors-6 colors-4 colors-1colors-4 Color study from 1692 by an artist known only as A. Boogert.  Looks like the original Pantone swatches.  I’ve seen this before with color wheels and theory. Time to Google. Until then, the rest of the yummy color blocks are located at Colossal

Pickin’ UP Stuff

Another antique market find. The Zanol Product Company made a little bit of everything including needles. Inside of the card is an even tinier envelope filled with sewing needles.

Fell in love with these Victorian trade cards from Dilworth’s Coffee. Edward Dilworth Latta was one hell of a traveling salesman. He built a southern empire in not just one industry but several. Surprised Starbucks hasn’t created ad campaigns like this… collectable trading cards. These are just down right gorgeous.
