Forget-me-not at the home store

One of those pre-printed, antique-style home decor items. This appears to be nearly identical to this source, and perhaps it will become standard piece of clip art like this old Olympia that I've since seen on rubber stamps for sale at the craft store. Has anyone in the 'sphere started amassing a collection of old advertising art like this?

The assembly is certainly a fiction, since the text underneath the typewriter appears to be copy from a gardening catalog advertising Forget-me-nots.

I quite like this image. Long live old engravings!

Not sure I like this. It makes a fine initial impression, but when you look more closely, as you say, it's a fake that makes no sense.
