I love this little ampersand (it's 1.5"), but what is it good for? Any ideas? Maybe I should put a pin on the back of it?
I'm also unsure of the era from which this little jewel hails, but I'm certain some of our more typestyle-savvy Pony Pals™ can offer a guess or two. The 1930s?
The background is a detail of a "The Crusher" vintage polyester shirt by Highlander, circa 1965. "Must not be ironed!"
I love this version of the ampersand because it so elegantly reveals the "et in ligature" origins of the symbol.
