Le Porte-Allumettes - 1932

'Guia Practica del Trabajo Manual Educativo' by Ezequiel Solana, which was published by Editorial Magisterio Espaņol in Madrid in 1904, contains for a wall mounted 'Rinconera' (Corner), based on the form of the Pyramidal Hat. The wording says 'hung on a ring on the wall it can be used at school to hold clarions, blackboards and other small objects.' It may, perhaps, be called a Corner because that is where it would be hung to best advantage.

'At Home Tonight' by Herbert McKay, which was published by Oxford University Press in London, New York and Toronto in 1940, contains diagrams for 'A Tidy', intended to be fixed to a wall with a drawing pin.
