A wonderful pairing of this 1931 book and four antique silver spoons featuring actors of that time.
This London published book features 215 pages of biographies of more than 100 stars of the screen of that era. The book also features film reviews, a who is married to who section, an obituary section, and most fascinating of all to me, a handwritten note from a mysterious disgruntled star.
The note, as far as I can decipher, reads ''How dare he say my mark is _______. I'm not going to ask for an apology, but I do demand an explanation, I''m not at ______ (every/many). Is it _________? An uncouth and stupid attack''. Someone was upset perhaps at one of the reviews. A mystery to be sure.
The four antique Oneida Silver Plate spoons feature an embossed likeness of the stars, with their printed name, as well as their signature along the length of the spoon. Each of the four actors are featured in the book. A rare find indeed.
The book has some foxing on the pages as well as discoloration of the front and back cover. I'm assuming this is from being handled and frequently read. The spoons have an incredible shine and luster with very little tarnish. The bowls of the spoon have some very minor scratching.
The book measures 7.5'' x 5''. The spoons are 6'' in length.
