Flair!

I receive this publication  about  activities and advertisement for Bryan/College Station and surrounding cities.

They have been printing originals from the 1950s collection of Visual Merchandise Displays of New York City.  They are so outstanding I thought you might like to see them. Please be sure and click on each one to see the details .scan0001

The Flower Cart. It was over 6 ft tall, three dimensional cart with basket of jeweled branches and flowers, and also jeweled ribbon with trim.

The Dutchie,  She is about 5 feet tall, hand painted  flat figure with full round head and egg baskets. Decorations of fabric, ribbon and jeweled felt flowers.

 

scan0005  Fountain of Lilacs is 8 1/2 feet tall, the base is wood with three dimensional decorated fountain of paper mache and jeweled wire, Wires bursting with jeweled lilacs, It is highly decorated.

Spring Urn is 8 1/2 feet tall.  Urn of blat construction painted to simulate Wedgewood, trimmed with gold. Manzanita tree with treated flowers of lilac or wisteria. Branches decorated with mirrors.

 

The Flair is published 4 times a year and the displays are always seasonal.  The Flair is 13 1/2 inches tall, so you can imagine how beautiful these pages are.

Wish you could see them in the publication and just imagine them in a store window in New York City……

Headed to Bunko with my good friend Sharon, so this is it for today. I don’t have time to visit any blogs, so I will say hello to all my friends and I will see you soon.
