Happy Thanksgiving, 2014

Illustration by Dynevor Rhys, The Delineator, November 1931.

Dynevor Rhys did some of the loveliest illustrations and covers for The Delineator and other magazines in the twenties and thirties. This is from an advertisement for “Her Majesty” silverplated flatware and dinnerware by 1847 Rogers Brothers. You may recognize the design of the dinner spoons, etc. (Click here to see another Rhys ad and illustration.) Oddly, Rhys did not illustrate the silverware pattern. Instead, the ambiance of an elegant dinner party is evoked.

May your day be just as peaceful and serene.
