Item/Description: Vintage 1973 Amway stationery kit “Worlds Together - Folding Note Collection.”
This rare and hard-to-find vintage stationery set consists of 32 UNUSED notecards and 34 UNUSED foil seals (all of the original 32 notecards are still present, along with 34 of the original 36 seals - thus there are still two extra, additional seals more than there are note cards).
The set consist of a variety of four (4) different delightful artistic designs, each of which is accompanied by a famous quotation. There are a total of eight (8) folding note cards per design (totaling up to 32 note cards).
Each notecard can be securely closed and sealed with the strikingly attractive gold & red foil seals that are also a part of this nostalgically retro set (there are 34 seals).
The four charming illustrated design images as well as the upbeat, positive, and loving messages which fittingly accompany each design are all inked in deep maroon which is stunningly offset against a vivid wintery white paper backdrop.
The heartwarming images & the sentimental quotes which accompany them are as follows:
*A youthful girl & boy are seated on a swing that is suspended from a majestic tree - “My friend is one who takes me for what I am” - Thoreau
*A little girl is sitting by the side of her beloved shaggy dog, hugging him with one arm and sharing an ice cream cone which she holds in her other hand - “Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness...” - Bronte
*A pair of birds with wings spread in soaring flight - “Love sought is good, but given unsought is better” - Shakespeare
*An elderly man seated in an antique rocking chair, with his grandson lovingly perched on his lap - “To love is to place your happiness in the happiness of another” - Leibnitz
The foil seals contain the imagery of a a gold and orange globe/sphere surrounded by the wording: “Worlds Together.”

Condition Summary: Like new, UNUSED excellent vintage collectible condition! When this set was brand new and “fully complete”, it came with 32 note cards and 36 foil seals. Now, in it’s “almost complete” condition, it retains all of the original 32 note cards and 34 of the original 36 foil seals (which is still two extra from the 32 notecards).
*All of the original 32 note cards are present and in pristine, “as new”, UNUSED condition.
*The foil seals are also pristine, with 34 remaining of the 36 seals that originally comprised this set (though that still leaves TWO EXTRA seals, since there were only ever 32 note cards to begin with)!
*The two (2) protective packages (the interior fitted “holder” of the stationery and the outer sleeve holder of the interior contents) are both completely intact. The interior stationery holder is like new. The exterior casing is in very good to excellent condition, with only noted condition factors being paper rubbing along the outer edges, and some paper rub off on the back side from when a rubber band once held this closed after the “Worlds Together” seal on this had been broken open.
