In the nineteenth century, the company of Palm & Fechteler was a major supplier of elegant decorations for horse-drawn carriages, coaches, and buggies. The firm advertised its wide variety of transferable designs — including ornamental shields, emblems, mottos, and monograms, ranging in price from $1 to $10 — in catalogs rightly described as "indispensable to every carriage maker and painter."
This selection of more than 800 striking designs from the firm's rare 1882 catalog includes crests, coats of arms, and a wealth of other eye-catching motifs — many incorporating dogs, handsome steeds, lyres, trumpets, eagles, cranes, lovebirds, sheaves of wheat, winged horses, wild beasts, mythical creatures, and scores of other imaginative images. An inexhaustible source of inspiration for artists, illustrators, and craftspeople, these attractive, copyright-free designs are ideal for lending a touch of Victorian-era ambience to advertisements, brochures, newsletters, posters, and a host of other projects.
