1 "Seated at the organ I was weary and ill at ease" The Lost Chord Vintage Postcard
New York The Knapp Company Unknown Near fine 
This is the prettiest card I've seen using a line from F. Earl Christy's poem "The Lost Chord." Most of them are in black and white with a rather disheveled background, though more of the verse. This shows only the first line -- clearly it's part of a series -- which reads "Seated one day at the organ I was weary and ill at ease ..." The small center graphic is lovely and makes for an understated, elegant card. It has not been postally used and there is no writing. It's numberd 381.

Best Wishes Postcard Floral with Water Scene
2 Best Wishes Postcard Floral with Water Scene
Germany Unknown Very Good 
An explosion of flowers surround a bucolic scene of a cottage with a path leading to stepping stones on the water and a woman following them out to the reeds. This card gives very few clues as to where it's been as it was never mailed and has no writing. It's German and lightly embossed. Small spot of wear to upper right corner only fault.

Die-cut Valentine Postcard May Happiness Be Thine Hearts Girl Fence
5 Die-cut Valentine Postcard May Happiness Be Thine Hearts Girl Fence
Unknown Fine 
What a beautiful card this is -- more greeting card than postcard, as there is a poem on the back and no stamp box. Beautiful die-cut edges give it a lacy look and the edges of the design, including the hearts, are embossed. There's no date and no evidence of origin, but it's a beauty and was clearly treasured. The poem reads "I send this word to you my love, It will always hold true, As long as you love me, my love, I surely will love you." Could be a Valentine, but could also be a romantic missive any time of year. The message on the front is "May Happiness Be Thine"

Patriotic Postcard My Country Tis of Thee Stars and Scroll
7 Patriotic Postcard My Country Tis of Thee Stars and Scroll
Germany International Art Publishing Co. Unknown 
What a cutie for the Fourth of July, or even Memorial Day. It looks like the work of Ellen Clapsaddle and there are attribtions of this is in the marketplace, but I have gone over it thoroughly with a magnifying glass and cannot find a signature to confirm it. Nonethleess it's a sweet image with the banner reading the first few lines of "My Country 'Tis of Thee." Love the way the little patriot is standing on a pile of stars! Great graphic. The card has a divided back and was never maile. Penciled message reads "Bertha From Madeleine." Tiny bit of corner wear, but otherwise crisp.

Pretty in pink and looking over a four-leaf clover -- perfect image for a Best Wishes card. There no date on this one, but I have many cards with the name Sophie Nundahl on them, so it's circa 1913. Divided back, but no message and postally unused. Looks like Sophie just penciled her own name in.

Postcard Sincere Wishes Fountain, Flowers, Pretty Girl
13 Postcard Sincere Wishes Fountain, Flowers, Pretty Girl
1913 
This card is so pretty and one I have never seen before. The dress is low-cut, but there is a demure quality to this pretty girl as she leans against the fountain and trails a branch in the water. The front says simply "Sincere Wishes." Very nice condition, perhaps because it never went through the mail. Will arrive in protective plastic sleeve. The divided back shows that it was given to Sophie on May 1 -- May Day! -- 1911 "with best wishes from your friend." One wonders ...

18 Too Tired to Write So Good Night Postcard. Woman in Nightgown Dresser with Mirror
Unknown Unknown circa 1910 Very good 
The perfect card for people who don't like to write messages! This one actually has one and it was mailed from Seville, Ohio to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio -- not too far! It reads with misspelling, "Are you coming with your Ma when she comes. Ma doesn't feal quite herself this morn. (last sentence unreadable)" The sender may be Nelle Horn, as this name is written in the upper left corner. Card is undated but clearly. given furnishings and clothing on the front, it dates from around 1910. The card is in great conditon save browning to corners from having been kept in an album.

Vintage Postcard Lady in Pink Red Feathers In Her Hair SIGNED A. Astt
20 Vintage Postcard Lady in Pink Red Feathers In Her Hair SIGNED A. Astt
Unknown 1900-1909 Very good Astt, A. 
Pretty postcard, a work of art likely by A. Astt who signed it in the lower right hand corner. Unfortunately, all efforts to research this artist failed. It looks to me as though the lady has a sunburn, but she is nonetheless fetching. The card is very clean with a touch of wear to bottom corners. It was postmarked in Ohio, but the stamp covers part of the date, so it derives from 1900-1909. It was sent to Austintown, Ohio. The message reads "Arrived home safely Sunday p.m. Have canned all my peaches. I got 7 quts. out of that. Got 2 qts. tomatoes and some butter ?. Haven't canned plums yet. Please write soon and send me recipe for India relish as my husband likes it very much. Thanking you for your kindness, I remain, ?. P.S. There were just eight people to service when I wasn't home."
