This label is in good shape and it is vintage, not a reproduction. I guarantee that. I start all my auctions at .99 cents as it is an auction and I just never cared when I went to live auction and the auctioneer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a bid.

Among the items saved by Loraine Dury of Green Bay, Wisconsin. She was an artist and teacher who lived from 1902 to 1979. I know from estate items that she took a lot of art courses in the early years and also always displayed art in her classroom. So, I believe she used these labels to show her students. I was told by the niece that Loraine used these also for drawing paper and sketch paper (the backs) in classroom. Loraine’s niece was here once again last Thursday morning with more advertising and art items.

I am more than happy to combine postage to save money. Just let me know and I will invoice you when you are finished bidding and wish for me to send the items. Then, I will combine postage and send to you, and send final invoice. If any questions about this, please email me.
