[Broadside napkin]: Souvenir in Commemoration of the Chelsea v. Fulham Football Match Played at Stamford Bridge 4th January 1919

London: Printer, Burgess, 1919.

Price: $600.00

Unbound. Souvenir broadside napkin. Approximately 14" x 14". Printed in black with a captioned central image of the two teams with floral border in pale blue. Contemporarily mounted on salmon-colored cardstock. Small tears and faint bleed through from glue used in mounting, considerable foxing, good or a little better. Souvenir of a football match.

Souvenir napkins survive to some degree, but seldom in nice condition, because of the thin material and because they were usually stored folded. We acquired a few napkins where the owner had the forethought to mount them, probably almost immediately. This one is more elaborately printed than most. Unsurprisingly, *OCLC* locates no copies, and indeed only seven individual items by this printer, each represented in a single example but for one, with two copies.
