Easter Joy Attend You; Little Girl Breaking out of Egg Holding Pussywillows (postcard)
1 Easter Joy Attend You; Little Girl Breaking out of Egg Holding Pussywillows (postcard)
New York; Berlin International Art Publications Co. 1900-1914 Very Good 
Cute Easter postcard used but never sent -- and was never meant to be. The divided back shows a message which reads "Write me a letter love and send me your photograph." The address portion also has a message, "For dear little old Nance with fondest Easter love from Grandma J." Very cute image. No date, but company was in existence only from 1895-1914. Light toning to back. Will arrive in plastic sleeve.

Language of Flowers Postcard Series; Violet, Lily, Sweet Pea, three cards)
2 Language of Flowers Postcard Series; Violet, Lily, Sweet Pea, three cards)
Unknown Very good 
This is a charming postcard series titled the Language of Flowers. From it we have three cards numbered 555, 556, and 563. None have been postally used. There is no date on any, but two of the three came from the same recipient (we have many of hers) and her dated cards range all from 1906 to 1914. The floweres are identified in the upper right corner along with their meaning in the language of flowers. These include violet,"faithfulness"; lily, "peace"; and sweet pea, "wish you joy." The lily card is addressed in pencil to Sophie Nundahl, Perry North Dakota with this message, "Haven't any more Easter greetings, so will have to send you this one. Clarence." The violet card just has Sophie's name and the words "from 13-3", which may be March, 1913 which makes sense if it, too, was an Easter card. The lily card was addressed to Emmett Olson, Frazer, Minnesota.

Northwestern Versus Notre Dame 1948 Football Program
3 Northwestern Versus Notre Dame 1948 Football Program
Notre Dame University 1948 soft cover Very good 
Beautiful condition and a fun collectible no matter which side's your favorite (well, maybe!) The game was held at Notre Dame Stadium November 13, 1948. The program measures 8"x11-1/2" and has 84 pages. It's interesting that the leading advertiser is Chesterfield cigarettes. Not only do they command the back cover, but also paid for a two-page color spread inside. Studebaker and Coca-Cola likewise sprang for color advertising. Pictures of the campus, staff, and Notre Dame players abound, as do photos of the Northwestern team. I did a little research and it seems that the Fighting Irish ended victorious with a perfect season matched only by the University of Michigan Wolverines. The championship ultimately went to the Wolverines, but at least on this day the Notre Dame Fight Song filled the autumn air with joy!

Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show 2004 catalog (and Newspaper)
4 Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show 2004 catalog (and Newspaper)
USA UBS Main sponsor 2004 February 13-17 Card cover Very good 
This is not an auction catalog. The treasures are placed in booths where vendors answer questions, offer information, and in the end seal a deal that make both seller and buyer leave happy. What's interesting of course is the items presented in the catalog as advertising. All are on golssy paper and in full color. The newspaper was from the Palm Beach News highlighting art, jewelry and antiques not only over the counter, but also in seminars. A few titles are these: The Inside Story -- Behind Some of the World's Great Jewels; The Connoisseur's Heart -- the Joy of Living With Antiques and Art; and Collecting Faberge. The catalog shows a bit of wear to cover's edges, but is clean and tightly bound. There are some names written at the front, but none cause a problem. The catalog measures 9" x 11" and has 83 pages.

Raphael Tuck & Sons Very Good 
The greeting here is meant for Valentine's Day, but could be sent anytime -- "To fill your heart with joy and bliss, Love's greeting, dear, I send with this." Pretty card was published by the great Raphael Tuck & Son (Art Publishers to their Majesties, the King and Queen) as part of Post Card Series No. 11 entitled "Floral Missives." The card is embossed and the rim of the oval frame surrounding the little flower girl is raised. The card was not sent through the mail,but is penciled on the divided back thus, "To Bertha From Madeline." I know because of other cards from this same collection that the recipient was Bertha Randall, Medina, Ohio, likely around 1910

Interiors: North Carolina Museum of Art, September 17-December 3, 2000, Paschal, Huston
13 Paschal, Huston Interiors: North Carolina Museum of Art, September 17-December 3, 2000
North Carolina North Carolina Museum of Art 2000 First Edition Card cover Fine catalog Very good dust jacket 
Beauty, surprise, joy and fear are some of the responses to the the over-riding theme of Interiors by the artists who created this catalog. Each one brought something different -- a colorful parlor, a pretty closet in Cape May, the inside of two cars,a dollhouse, a Nazi death camp and more. Works are all in color throughout unless the scene required darkness. The catalog is designed with a gray card cover and a nice cream color dust jacket which shows just a few small light marks. Catalog measures 6" x 9" and has 58 pages. Appears unread and is a thing of beauty.
