Hereby presenting an excerpt from Punch, or the London Charivari magazine (July, 1869). It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.
“Imogen’s jewel-casket contains two or three handsome Bullas, one set with stones of lapis lazuli, one with rubies, and all with those charming devices in raised gold letters, AEI, PAX, LUX, VIS, &c., &c. Also an immensely thick and massive gold circlet for the throat, in exact imitation of the cord round the neck of the dying gladiator – Etruscan armlets and fibulae of every possible pattern and device, rings for every day in the wekk with the name of the appropriate god engraved on each (as Saturn for Saturday, &c.), and as for Greek daggers and Roman pins for the hair, they are innumerable!”
