Touch of History

The Jan. 12, 1925 article introduces rubina as well as several other noteworthy items. The mention of the color "onyx" is very interesting. We have no confirmed information as to what it is, so we leave that to your imagination. For your convenience we have boxes in two misspelled words: "own" should be "owl" and "key" should be "keg".

We have a surprise bonus this month--the introduction of blue willow. To our surprise, it came in amber and emerald glass done in gold.

In general these articles speak for themselves and some items mentioned are shown in adjacent copies of advertisements.
