The Diamond Dyes 45 Color Sample Swatch Card, Wells, Richardson & Co Vermont, c. 1910s

Regular price $35.00

Just so pretty, I can't resist these when I come across them, which is pretty rarely. Forty five dyed fabric swatches, some cotton and some wool it appears, with excellent names under each for other colors each dye could be used to make: fawn, peacock, canary, sandal, cerise, prune, etc. Plus a great little pointing hand at bottom left and "directions for odd colors" on reverse. Early 20th century, and I think very frame-worthy, though made with a fold down the middle, so it can also stand on its side.

8 1/8 x 7 and in good antique condition, swatches are bright and crisp.
