F. E. Olds was a manufacturer of musical instruments founded by Frank Ellsworth Olds in Los Angeles, in the early 1900s. The company made brass instruments, especially trombones, cornets, and trumpets. Olds was joined by his son Reginald Birdsall (R.B.) Olds in 1920. The company was purchased by Chicago Musical Instruments after World War II, and went out of business in 1979.
Small, first prize-winning figurines on display at the Los Angeles County Fair. The figurines appear to be in the shape of deer. There are small plants next to them, as well. Signs on the display read, "First prize," and "Marion Adams." The items are set on a tiled table and propped up on wooden blocks.
