Here's another vintage ink blotter, on the heels of the Dormison blotter featured earlier this week.
My guess is that this card dates to the late 1930s or 1940s. The type has a slight bit of Art Deco feel to it.
Hormotone, prescribed for amenorrhea and dysmenorrhea, was produced by G.W. Carnrick Co. of Newark, New Jersey.
Regarding G.W. Carnrick, I found this curious full-page advertisement within a 1906 issue of "The American Journal of Clinical Medicine." It seems to pertain to a spat between the current and former companies that Mr. Carnrick was involved with.
Here are other ink blotters that have been featured on Papergreat:
- McCall Chair Co. of Cornelius, North Carolina
- Wampole's Creo-Terpin (from Ensley, Alabama)
- Cal-C-Malt, for sound teeth, improved appetite and robust health
- Worcester, Mass., mayoral candidate Charles F. "Jeff" Sullivan
- Ticonderoga pencils (with Frances Tipton Hunter artwork)
- Shafer's Flowers of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania
- Dormison, which "helps break the anxiety-insomnia-anxiety cycle"
