Calendars made to hang on the wall or to be displayed on a desk top have been popular since the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Many were printed with advertising as part of the artwork and were given away as premiums. Calendars illustrated by famous artists or with guns, gunpowder, or Coca-Cola advertising are expensive.

Taking calendars for granted is an easy thing to do. After all, most people don't give them a second thought until they need one and it's not readily available. So what actually makes a functional item like a calendar collectible? The first factor is the illustration.
The beginning of a new year seems like the perfect time to explore our collection of vintage calendars. Unlike advertisements in newspapers or magazines, which were likely to be discarded right away, a free calendar could potentially hang in a home or business for an entire year. The more attractive the calendar, the more likely consumers would be to display it on their walls, which gave companies a powerful incentive to create colorful calendars featuring beautiful illustrations.
