And not long after that, I discovered this advertisement for the very same gorgeous thing in one of my vintage magazines:
I guess it only makes sense that this should happen. I mean, I LOVE vintage - and I collect old magazines, so it stands to reason that I might find some of my things in the magazines I buy. But I still get a major kick out of it every single time.
The coupon with which one would have ordered it is seen below:
Mine is framed, and that means I paid less than one-sixth the total price 39 years later - and somebody else had already done all of the work! (From Family Circle Magazine, February 1973).
