I have two sets of laminated dinner place mats featuring the artistic talents of the great actor Lionel Barrymore. These were probably issued in the 1960s and don't look as if they've ever been used.
Each set comes in a folder that contains 4 place mats (each with a different scene). Each set has the same 4 scenes.
Lionel Barrymore (1878 - 1954) was one of the most famous stage and screen actors of his day. He won the 1931 Academy Award for Best Actor (in "A Free Soul"). He is probably best remembered for his roles in "It's a Wonderful Life" (playing the villainous Mr. Porter) and in "A Christmas Carol" (playing Ebenezer Scrooge). He also played the role of Dr. Gillespie in the very popular series of movies about Dr. Kildare.
The multi-talented Barrymore also was a novelist, composer, and artist. With respect to his art, he had actually studied painting in Paris between 1903 and 1907. He was well known for his etchings.
Asking $ 5.00 for two identical sets of 4 placements (in other words, $ 5.00 for 8 placemats).
Please respond with name and phone number. I will call you. Thanks.
