condition: like new
size / dimensions: 10 inches in diameter
The only reason this calendar survived like it did (basically new) is that it was kept in a box for 117 years box (box included) . It was probably meant as a gift the was never received. Obviously, the calendar was never used.

Against the backdrop of the calendar is a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier entitled “The Quiet Room,” a poem about the importance of peace and quiet in order to find God.

The starburst design is really neat, with a gold sun sending out rays in all directions. The original red bow tops off the calendar.

All 12 months and days are represented.

The calendar measures 10 inches in diameter and is just like it was back in 1907.
