    A birthday present I bought for myself. This is a cloth fly swatter with a wood handle and wire frame. It was originally held together with thick metal staples and it has few newer standard new size staples added to it.
    As for when it was made I fear I have to guess but don't want to be quoted by others on a year so it is possible it was around in the Great Depression, WWII or the start of the cold war.
