Antique Five Year Diary from eBay

This beauty came from eBay. The seller kindly made an exception to the US Only shipping he offered and has already sent it to me in Sweden.

I have always wanted one with monthly indexing and the 3D page edge effect is something I have never seen before. Cannot wait to get it. Thanks Barry!

  1. Oh, that is lovely! Do you know roughly when it was produced? It reminds me of the kinds of diary my grandfather used. 🙂

    • It is gorgeous! I have wanted one of those with the monthly index labels for ages but I keep missing out! I would say just from the pictures it could be from the 1930s to 1950s. I will know more when I see it and it may have some dates inside on a calendar or holiday page that will be more of a clue.
      Would that be about right for your grandfather’s one?
