Notes: "There have been four variations of the Pocahontas Press device since it was first designed by Suzette M. Zurcher for her press in 1937. This one is her current preference. The form above the central design represents a couple of stylized Indian feathers, honoring the proprietor's ancestress, for whom the press is named." © James Lamar Weygand
