Complete set of 24 Beistle Fortune Verses

Ends 11/02

This rare set was made by Whitney of Worcester, MA. The company went out of business in 1943. Except for their post cards, Whitney almost never marked any of their output making identification dependent on familiarity of their imagery. This set, especially in this condition, seldom surfaces. 

(Were you as surprised as I was that this set brought such high dollars? This ended at $372.87, a result FAR higher than I would have forecast.)
