However, in those days calendar customers were reluctant to purchase images created by a women, and the company asked her to only sign her early work "Kenyon". But she soon signed an exclusive contract with Gerlach Barklow due to her work being so successful for its calendar images and sales. A great addition to your collection. Measure 6 5/8" x 9" each with blue felt-like backs. CONDITION: Fine condition with minor edge, corner and moderate handling wear. Please use the included images as a conditional guide. Guaranteed to be 100% vintage and original from Grapefruit Moon Gallery. ****************
