Ink Blotters were popular from the 1800s through the 1950s when fountain ink pens were predominant. The ink would stay wet for several minutes, so a blotter was used on signatures, etc. to absorb the excess ink. They are soft and absorbent on the back and the front was often used for displaying advertising. Similar to calendars, matches and business cards, they were a favorite give-a-way media for advertisers from the late 1800s through the mid 1950s. Most were used and tossed. Survivors with interesting advertising are scarce.
These say, Talman Construction Co. ~ Grading Excavating ~ We Move the Earth. Each has a 4 digit phone number in Wilmington, N.C. and graphics of a bulldozer and Earth mover. The detailed colorful side graphics are a wonderful example of 1940s and 1950s pinup art. Be sure to look below at the quality of the front graphics. Definitely one of Pin Ups Classics! No folds, No nips, No fading, No nothin. Perfect Unused Condition. Genuine 1950s item.
