Product description

Original 1947 calendar - Venetian bridge scene with motto - 71st birthday gift
 
An original vintage calendar from 1947, measuring approximately 13.4 x 23.8cm (5.3 x 9.35in), with colour print depicting a Venetian scene with bridge, glued to a thin leather-effect embossed brown card backing with matching calendar tab cover and the printed motto "BE CHEERFUL. / What sunshine is to flowers, / Smiles are to humanity", plus hanging ribbon.
 
This is one of a group of original 1947 calendars of various designs which we have acquired as a job lot. These calendars are old shop stock and therefore unused, although they are not in mint condition, having been stored for many years in less-than-ideal conditions. This particular calendar therefore has some marking (including glue marks around the print) and discoloration to the card with bumping and creasing to corners, together with slight discoloration to the print and to the hanging ribbon; the tab is discoloured with age, with "December" being marked and a little wrinkled, but is otherwise in good condition.
 
It would nevertheless provide an authentic finishing touch to a period room setting - and would make an interesting and unusual birthday gift for anyone who turns 71 in 2018!
