Got a third fly swatter so it looks like I now have a collection. I think when you have three of something it becomes a collection.
This is type they had before the plastic ones used today. It uses a material like the that of a window screen. Minimum wind resitance which not only makes it faster but gives the fly less warning. Flies can sense a air pressure coming down on them, it is a natural defense as lots of animals like to eat flies but sadly there are never enough to eat all the flies. Back to this exciting swatter of flies I see it has stitching as opposed to staples to attach the trim. That makes me think that it is early 1960's at the latest.
I have a fancier one I posted earlier and the fly shaped one. The fly shaped one may just be a decorator piece but it looks neat. I prefer a proper vintage fly swatter myself.
