Monogram M 1940's...

the infamous M monogrammed imprinted 
candy-coated chocolates...
M&M’s


made their debut in the 1940’s

(although technically the imprinted M 
on each piece didn't appear until 1950, 
several years after their debut)


this violet M was one of the popular 
1940’s monogram styles

and the frame is a 1949 style of artwork


as for the M&M’s...

violet was replaced by the color tan in 1949
tan was replaced by blue in 1995


but this violet monogrammed M lives on


*all M&M’s used were for research purposes only
ummm...until they were consumed




it's just embroidery, have fun with it!
