Maker: R__ C Francis ___, Fulton __, NJ
Leather, Hard Wood, and Textile Ribbon
63” length with 6¾” long samples
Ref. No. kit12
These 53 samples from an original offering of 58 are housed in a pliable deerskin roll. Each molding numbered freehand in ink. Bundle also stamped or stenciled five times as to maker or business which I could not fully discern. The freehand word “Fulton” is readable, and the two freehand letters below “Fulton” appear to read “N.J” though that notion is uncertain. Circa, 1850 possibly N.J. origin.
