One World Needle Book, Germany, ca. 1920s

I love the graphics on this needle book and it's one world message. It's made in Germany, which has me stumped. Could this have been made during the Third Reich? It doesn't seem likely. That's why I date it circa 1920s.

But the plane near the Eiffel Tower and the bus seem more like 1930s vintage. Hmmm. Has to be the 1920s...Egypt was the rage. King Tut's tomb and all that.

It's quite nice inside, too.

Bridge Tally, ca. 1920s

Bridge tallies are one of my favorite things to find at a paper doll convention. The colors and artwork are wonderful.  Amazing how common these tallies were at one time.

The Chestnut Vendor, 14th Street, woodcut, ca. 1930s

This 4x4 print appear to have been removed from a book; there's no printing on the back. 
It has a perfect November kind of mood about it.
