Description 
This tiny black and white striped box contains a folded invitation to see new fashions from Paris at "Ferle Heller 2 East 46 St.-New York". Text: More than the small Geishas who are dancing on the moon/ More than the serious and childish Javenese with their gold finger nails and dreaming eyes/ More than the Bayaderie with her Wonderful grace/ more the the Houris from Persia/ More than all lovely women in the world are/ the Parisiens this season in their beautiful hats and dresses. Ferle Heller is hurrying back from Paris with the last word in hats and dresses. Do come in and see them after February eight."
