During lunchtime today (at exactly twelve o'clock p.m.) I took this photograph while the sun came barreling down in hot waves of unhindered light. Drenched in noonday brightness, this pale beauty has been anointed by the height of summery solar power. Carved into a debonair flower design, the color is creamed corn. The make is Bakelite. The year is 1928. The style is art deco. That is all.
