What the MOTH found -- Tobacco Silks

Vintage and antique tobacco silks

Check out these nearly-antique tobacco silks the MOTH brought home. He's good! He didn't know what they were but he knew they were something special.

Miniature oriental rugs made of flannel felt

These are flannel (also called felts), and like the printed silks above, they were also included with tobacco and cigarettes as promotional items. These are printed in faux oriental carpet patterns and intended to be used in doll houses. I'm seeing them in my little shrines and whatnot.
