Woodwork Patterns.

Racine, WI: Whitman Publishing Co., (c. 1930). Oblong octavo. (12)ff. Each leaf provides a different design, with instructions for removing the stencils—then to be used as guides for the emergent carpenter—and for assembly. The kit includes an arm chair, a soldier, a table, a squirrel-shaped door stop, a Nosey Nellie ring game, a movable elephant, frog- and rabbit-shaped napkin rings, a spool-holder, a picture frame, a paddle wheel boat, dog book ends, and a camel. Whitman Publishing also issued a kit for masks of movie stars (Keaton, Chaplin, et al.) in 1931, suggesting a similar date for the present product. Staple-bound in decorated wrappers showing mild toning, else near fine. Item #33342

Price: $250.00
