Fonotipia (Italy) / c. 1913

Design: A very beautiful design, with gorgeous red rubber-stamped imprinting. While the hard-edged frame in the upper segment does not stylistically match the flowing Art Nouveau border in the lower segment, the 'wings' (at either side of the lower segment) echo the visual effect of the angel's wings above.

History: Image courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland.
