1935 ADV INK BLOTTER FOR THE EXECUTOR TRUSTEE & AGENCY CO OF SAX4
We have on offer an original 1935 advertising ink blotter for the Executor Trustee & Agency Co of SA Ltd
Advertisers & manufacturerswere quick to realize that given something as simple & utilitarian as an ink blotter, that by adding their promotional advertising to these items, would greatly assist in the marketing of their products & services. Many of these promotional advertisng blotters were given away with the sale of their products, especially venues such as trade fairs & Royal Agricultural Shows ( especially in Sample ShowBags)in our capital cities & regional areas.
These colourful & interesting ephemeral items are now an anachronism in our modern lives & as such reflect a most interesting & desirablecollectablein a period whenpeople used to WRITE LETTERS using ink wells & dip pens!
The blotter is in good unused condition but has some corner bruising. Given the fragile, ephemeral nature&soft absorbent textures of these productsadvertising blotters are becoming increasingly hard to access on collector’s markets.
