Treasure Chest Thursday: Greeting me each morning


This coaster, sitting beside my keyboard, holds my coffee each morning.  It has also held more than a few glasses of wine, sodas and smoothies.  It's made from the printer's plate for my grandparents' wedding announcements in 1925.  

It reads (in mirror image):

Mr. and Mrs. Reese Jackson Williams
announce the marriage of their daugher
Iva
 to 
Mr. Robert Porter Sawyer
on Thursday October the first
nineteen hundred and twenty-five
Portland Oregon




Coaster made from printer's plate, 1926. Digital Image.  Privately held by Nolichucky Roots [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE], 1999.
