Added Value: Things found in books part eight

I’m not sure what this is! It measures 4.5 x 2.5” and is on a piece of thick paper with embossed figures. The ‘dancing ladies’ remind me of a Kate Greenaway illustration. 

Found in Sydney's chums by H. F. Gethen with illustrations by Gordon Browne. Published by Blackie & Son Limited c1920.

What is it? Could it be a wallpaper sample? Any ideas? 


  1. I remember bookmarks looked like this years ago. It isn't a bookmark?

    I don’t think so, both ends have been cut so it would have been longer and it just doesn’t ‘feel’ like a book mark.


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
