Bottom left has a typical Frederick Remington mounted cowboy holding his Winchester rifle and waving his hat. Bottom right depicts an Indian in a red & white blanket with red shirt holding his Winchester rifle waving at the cowboy, with a teepee in the background. Through the center is the usual Winchester advertising and beautifully detailed pine branches with needles & cones and the tiny vignette of a raebuck. Bottom of calendar has additional advertising. All the calendar pages are missing although the brass rivets are still present in the corners. CONDITION: Very fine. Colors are vivid & bright with all writing & vignettes sharp & clear; there is a fold near bottom band and a few small edge tears not dramatically affecting the image.
