1940s Parsons Desk Calendar

It was my birthday on Friday, and a few of my lovely friends went down the same route with presents and I ended up with several amazing vintage stationery pieces. I wanted to share these items with you, and I’m starting with this Parsons Desk Calendar which Ashley bought me.

Here it is in all it’s glory on my old school desk, accompanied by some of my birthday cards (stationery and cats… That’s a given)

And here’s a close up, you turn the wheels on either side to change the date, like so:

I’m told it’s 1940s. I done a bit of searching and I can’t find anything out about Parsons… Not sure if it was a stationery company, or a different kind of company that gave these out as promotional gifts. Does anyone by any chance know anything about them??

Either way, I think it’s completely gorgeous and it’ll definitely have it’s place on my future dream desk 🙂

Thanks Ash! x
