    This was my absolute favorite 1940s novelty print ever! Celtic themed with knots, winged horses, a stylized wheel of fortune! Sold last year.

    Great colors and great fashions thus far.

    Original issue 1990s J. Peterman, Rose's butterfly comb from "The Titanic". Wish I had never sold this!
