SISTER by J.P. McEvoy – Buzza Motto – 1927
Deep in my heart, I hold the glow
Of all the joy we used to know,
Each little smile, each tender touch
That meant, we never knew, how much,
When all the world was new and fair
And we were young and didn’t care;
And now it seems the thought of you Is like a song forever new,
Deep in my heart
by J.P. McEvoy
SISTER reminisces days gone by; memories now held special and expresses a deep love for the time spent together during their childhood.
.SISTER was published in 1927 by The Buzza Company. The motto is a colorful lithograph illustrated with a beautiful scene of bluebirds in flight outlined with a lattice of pink flowers. Touches of gold foil highlight the motto’s design and the frame’s pattern.
Touches of gold foil highlight the motto’s design and the frame’s pattern. On the back is a handwritten sentimental note signed and dated – “… Lenora Art Family, Year 1927.” In the day mottos were often signed when given as a gift to another. Today the tradition continues. SISTER is in good condition for its age and the frame, glass and dust cover (worn) are original. The brass hanger appears to be added several years later.
SISTER is an excellent gift and when hung your thoughts are there to you sister to read. She will treasure it for life.
