It was used during the 1920's in store windows of Winchester Stores, Winchester Repeating Arms own line of hardware stores. This panel set advertises the Junior Trap Shooting Outfit and. The release date was June 24, 1920. Panel sets, consisting of five 40" x 19" panels, were introduced in March 1920 and continued through approximately 1928.Originally printed on one side of the thin cardboard panel Winchester quickly saw the economy in printing on both sides and double sided panels were introduced in September, 1920. The scenes on each side of the panel were targeted for display during specific weeks designated by Winchester. Each panel was made to be slipped into a wooden five panel frame, also supplied by Winchester. It appears that Winchester produced at least 29 one sided sets and 47 two sided sets. The best reference book on this subject is the Winchester Rarities by Tommy Webster and David Kowolski.
Some of the sets that I have for sale are pictured in this book and identified in the description. I typically show photos of one or both sides of the panel set from that book when possible. Some of the panel sets I have for sale were not shown in the book as they were not available at the time of publication. The panel sets are colorful and present a breathtaking image when arranged in order.
The individual panels are fragile due to the lightweight construction. Edge damage from inserting and removing from frames is common but such damage is typically hid from view by the wood frame. Those that are not on foam core should be protected as such for preservation. Or displayed in a frame if you have one.
