This coaster, sitting beside my keyboard, holds my coffee each morning. It has also held more than a few glasses of wine, sodas and smoothies. It's made from the printer's plate for my grandparents' wedding announcements in 1925.
It reads (in mirror image):
Mr. and Mrs. Reese Jackson Williams
announce the marriage of their daugher
Mr. Robert Porter Sawyer
on Thursday October the first
nineteen hundred and twenty-five
Coaster made from printer's plate, 1926. Digital Image. Privately held by Nolichucky Roots [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE], 1999.
