Notelet set featuring Del Monte Oaks, 1920 by William Seltzer Rice (American, 1873–1963). William Seltzer Rice moved to Northern California in 1900, just before the region’s Arts & Crafts movement ignited. A talented watercolorist, Rice taught at various schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. He became devoted to block printing because the prints better suited the Arts & Crafts ethos of making artwork available to a wide audience at modest cost.
Ten small blank notecards (3½ x 5 inches) and white envelopes in an acetate-topped decorative box with text about the artist or artwork.
