This still life was set up on my painting taboret that has a glass top for mixing paint, so it shows the reflection of the blocks in the glass.

This painting is a mix of alphabet blocks and a Disney Minnie Mouse block. The alphabet blocks are a set that I’ve had from childhood and I think they were made by Halsam Company of Chicago, Illinois. A larger set of the same blocks were produced earlier by The Embossing Company of Albany, New York which was later purchased by Halsam so I’m not sure which company actually produced this set. I don’t have the box that these blocks were packaged in so it’s not clear who actually made them. If anyone has more information about these it would be interesting to learn more. The Disney blocks I’ve discussed earlier and I have more documentation for them.
