Thurber's Reading Dog

A sound creature in a crazy world is how James Thurber thought of dogs. One of America's greatest writers of humor, Thurber [1894-1961] was also an artist who celebrated dogs in many of his inimitable drawings and cartoons for The New Yorker magazine. His short stories, essays, fables, and drawings have been collected in over thirty books. "Thurber's Reading Dog" was originally published in 1940 in his book Fables for Our Time. It countinues to amuse in its quiet absurdity.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.
