Black and white border image with a fierce looking Viking. White drawings on a black polka dot background, a central figure is surrounded by leaves, two griffins and a pair of dragon-like birds. Quite a conversation piece is this vintage, copyright free border image.
A Store of Stories for Children was also a wonderful source of vintage images. It’s from 1888, published by Skeffington & Son and written by Frances Clare. No illustrator was credited.
