Each section has numerous numerous samples of the different fabrics, their inventory numbers and their names. 10 sections in all, each one has 9 to 30  examples of the fabric. GREAT REFERENCE.  Very colorful.

 

Waverly Decorative Fabrics, New York

 

Has been packed away for many, many years, needs to be aired out.  "packed away odor".   Overall it is mostly clean, in good vintage condition;  lightly soiled washable pages, corners bent, typical handling.  Salesman sample.  The FABRICS are colorful and interesting designs, top of the line product for 1950's!

Please check out the photos and scans I have; this is a very interesting example of  textile history.

 

Where can you get it?  I am going to list it for sale in my ETSY shop; www.etsy.com/shops/nancesnostalgia this afternoon. or contact me at nnostalgia@earthlink.net I just wanted to share with you while I am trying to gather some listing information plus figuring out price. This is one of those items that is hard to put a value on I may need to list it on eBay (not a huge fan of that for this......) constructive pricing feedback is welcome!
