This is an original 1919 double-page, two-color print ad for Columbia Records from the Columbia Grafonola Company.

Period Paper is offering a special collection of original double-page print ads. In order for us to safely ship these items flat and for you to display them in their entirety, we developed custom archival packaging just for these desirable items. Each ad is protected by an oversized black acid-free 3-ply board and encapsulated in archival resealable bags. Plus, we use special custom shipping materials to guarantee safe arrival, flat, so that the items can be easily displayed in the packaging we provide. The cost of this protective packaging is expensive which makes the pricing of these items higher than our single page ads. As they are original double-page spreads, they have the typical staple marks along the center crease. However, these are probably the finest double-page spreads available anywhere.


This 92+ year old Item is rated Very Fine. No aging. No tears. No water damage. There are staple holes in the original center crease--please see image.
