Red-Man Quality Products
Peru, IN: W.C. Redmon, Sons & Co., 1940. Wraps. Spiral. . Very Good Plus. Lovely trade catalogue with metallic color illustrations of hampers and baskets of a wide variety. 4to. 29 by 22.5 cm. Unpaginated, 15 leaves (30 pp.) With two copies of four page price list also bound in the spiral.The cove has a faux wood finish with stripes of a metallic silver green as backdrop for the title and other lettering. In the center is a profile bust of an Indian, the company insignia and a play on its name of "Redmon". It is the metallic quality of the silver and other colors that distinguishes this trade catalogue and make it of interest as a printed object in and of itself, beyond what might seem the mundane things it is featuring. The fancy fruit and Easter baskets stand out for the combination of colorized photos of fruits within the colorful assortment of baskets. A few illustrations depict housewives of the period using the baskets, and there is one green tinted photo of women at a grocery holding yellow and green colorized baskets. Scarce, with only copy found on OCLC FirstServe in Indiana Historical Society. Light use.
