Hello Again,
Another purchase from yesterday. This I picked up at an estate sale at the house of the family that owned the ' Durgin Park ' restaurant, in Boston.
( I also bought a wonderful watercolor there, which I'll post tomorrow ).
This is a great piece, about 9+1/2" long, 5+1/2 " wide, with a flower at the top, a star, and the letters ' PEO ', ( I was wondering if the 'E' was actually an ampersand?).
Any ideas what the 'PEO' might mean?
I hope it rings a bell with someone.
Thanks,
Tony.

    Hi, Tony! Hope you're doing well in snowland, and that your Kat on Terrace is not frozen. : ) Do you think that this might have once been part of a door knocker ensemble? Since the flower unit has to direct support, I thought that this might be a possibility. Take care out there in the snow! Regards, miKKo

    Thank You for the love and comment miKKo!
    Alas, the snow has melted and the scent of Spring anoints the air
    we still haven't seen the sun, but it's lovely.
    and Marianne/Marti, she's an indoor kitty,....(too many coyotes around:)
    I'll think on the door knocker idea, molto grazie!
