Agent book is heavily faded and chipped, frayed corners and edges, sunned edges. According to the University of Rochester, Mina (or Minnie) Brunswick (1849-Rochester, September 9, 1925) was listed in the Rochester city directories as a producer of fruit plates or nurserymen's plates from 1888 through 1920. Her first advertisement, in the 1889 directory, reads in part: "M. Brunswick & Co., (Formerly with D. M. Dewey), Manufacturers of Hand Painted Fruit and Ornamental Plates." Rochester University further states that by the 1910s Brunswick appears to have been the last producer of hand-painted (stencilled) plates in Rochester.
