Welcome

I finally have a big desk to clutter up with useful vintage things. Now this vintage front desk penholder from some Motel or Hotel keeps a pen handy and in reach.

The copy reads
"Welcome!
Why not telephone the folks back home to let them know you arrived safely."

The little phone is ceramic and does not actually operate.

What a cruel hoax! They get you thinking about the friends you miss and then the telephone doesn't even work???? Red carpet, indeed.
