Keepsake



I wonder what this was meant to be originally. It's about 2 inches by 4 inches and just seems the wrong shape for a bookmark.
Maybe it's a keepsake being used as a bookmark as the phrase reads: "May you many birthdays see and each year more happy be" which is pretty sweet really.
It's obviously machine made and I wish I knew when because it has this old feel to it but it clearly can't be that old.
I guess that's part of what I love about finding these things hidden in books, their mystery.

Bollinger

I finally got round to scanning something new, I have a pile of things to scan so might get caught up a bit with these bits and bobs.
I love this letter, here Sir, have some champagne....
Why don't I get letters like that?
Or is it the equivalent of a book club? Only with champagne?
I saw an advert for a chocolate club once, I did well to resist I think....
