Description

Small, wallpaper covered folder used to hold family documents. The folder is one of a group of twenty-two created by Olive Percival of Los Angeles, California. This folder's label, handwritten by Percival, indicates it held "Lineage Data" from geneologist T. M. Strobridge. The folder, commercially made to hold envelopes or other small documents, is made from tri-folded, heavy-stock paper and has metal edges on one side. It has been covered in an Arts and Crafts style floral wallpaper with a pattern of stylized branches with multi-colored leaves and small red flowers on blue background. It is roller-printed in three greens, two blues, brown and red on ungrounded paper.
