Letterforms provide mola makers with an array of decorative shapes to incorporate into their designs. The letters on this mola are turned in various directions and not meant to be read, although they may have been copied from an advertisement, coin, or product label. Note the incorporation of printed fabric, a popular trend in the 1920s and 1930s.
