    "Ephemeral Art – Here today and gone tomorrow"

    Will be held on September 28th, 2014, at 7:00 PM EDT


    To attend, follow this link:

    The program provides an overview of the evolution, distribution and imagery of 19th century advertising trade cards with a special focus on horology. These cards were an integral part of many Victorian homes, often appearing in prominently placed albums. The art work provides an interesting view of turn-of-the-century American life and industry. This program was presented at the 2014 NAWCC National Convention by Pat Holloway.


    Pat is currently a program manager with a global professional services firm. Much of her spare time focuses on early American dollar watches, primarily gathering examples and gleaning information from late 19th century advertising to provide insight into everyday life. Pat is an NAWCC Fellow, serves as Chair of the National Program Committee, is a member of the Horological Arts Chapter, Secretary and Newsletter Editor of Chapter 15, and Newsletter Editor of Chapter 139. She is also a member of Chapter 124 and the Capital Area Watchmakers and Clockmakers Guild.

    Cool beans! The Vintage forum is awash with vintage advertising art. Pat should post some of her ephemeral art! It would promote attendance.

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Not sure of the 'ephemeral art' borders but I've been always fascinated by the service papers (is there a special name for it? ) placed in the English pocket watches' lids:

    In the States casemakers were the usual source for case lid papers. Mostly they are guarantees of X years of no brassing.

    But I do have a dollar watch that gives a watch replacement warranty discount ... $0.25 would get you a new watch

    Ah, proof the grey market has always existed! LOL

    The address is right in the middle of the old downtown Boston... quite posh for a $0.25 pocket watch.
