In excellent vintage condition – colors are still vibrant, packaging is relatively clean and intact; Placemats measure 15.5" wide by 10.5" high, and are signed “Galindo”.

Gold foil sticker reads “Monogram of California, San Francisco, 40 PLACEMATS” with Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco cable car illustrations.

Don Galindo (1925-2012) was a painter and commercial design artist, a seventh-generation Californian & lifelong SF Bay Area resident, Navy veteran (Korean War), and longtime art professor. His work encompassed a variety of styles, many with a cartoonish whimsy. We were fortunate to buy his personal collection of vintage party ware samples (that he designed) at his estate sale.
