A Happy Easter Squeaker Postcard Peeps 1912
1 A Happy Easter Squeaker Postcard Peeps 1912
1912 
Novelty postcards are fun, especially the older ones with squeakers. It makes for a puffy card that I can't imagine sending in the mail, though fortunately, this one never was mailed. All you have to do is press and you can hear these little peeps on Easer morning. The card has a message on its divided back to Miss Grace Wolfinger. The message reads "With best Easter wishes from Mr. and Mrs. Gess (or Hess) April 7th 1912.

Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
2 Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
Unknown 1909 Very good 
This is a truly unique postcard, as there are two operating wheels which allow you to change both the month and the day. Both work very well, but you have to grasp the slim edges with your nails to do it. Quite a novelty and very pretty in pastel. The card was mailed with no message to Bertha Randall of 310 W/. Smith Road, Medina, Ohio -- right here when I am! Only fault is an erasure at front of green mailbox where name of sender had been.

German Best Wishes Postcard Bird and Flowers
3 German Best Wishes Postcard Bird and Flowers
Germany 1917 Very good condition 
This is really a pretty card with bright colors and virtually no wear, as it was never sent through the mail. The cardstock is exceptionally heavy and the design appears to be pasted on. It's a raised design which gives it an extra dimension. On the back it says Series 1700 Made In Germany. The divided back shows the recipient to be Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The message side says "A Happy Birthday Jan. 30, 1917 From E."

Leather Postcard Easter Greeting
4 Leather Postcard Easter Greeting
1907 Leather Good 
Leather postcards were quite the fad in the early 19th century. What appears to be stitching around the edges of this one is not -- it's faux stitching. Many leather cards tend to be humorous, but here we have a nice Easter greeting with a pretty girl on an egg. There is no message -- just the address to Miss Josephine Hickey of Scio, Ohio. Note small stain over the H which caused the ink to run. Otherwise very nice.

Leather Postcard Here's My Postal Card Mailman Mailbox
5 Leather Postcard Here's My Postal Card Mailman Mailbox
1906 Very good 
Novelty postcards are fun and this leather one is perfect for a collector of postcards -- as it expresses the idea of trading cards with firneds to build a collection -- "Here's My Postcal Card Send Me Yours, I Am Collecting Post Cards." Under this is a line for adding one's name and Charles Patton took advantage of it. He mailed the card Dec. 3, 1907 from Warren, Ohio to Miss Edina Vanderslice of Garrettsville, Ohio.

Lovelights Soul Mates Kissing Couple in a Light Bulb Postcard 1910
6 Lovelights Soul Mates Kissing Couple in a Light Bulb Postcard 1910
1910 Very good 
The kissing couple in an Edison light bulb is part of a series. I forget what the others are, but this one is sweetly racy, though you may have to look twice to see why! The card was sent to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio by someone from Berea, Ohio who illegibly scrawled their initials. The message is slightly racy too but is quite readable -- "Isn't this a peach?" Love it!

Novelty postcard Reverse Writing in Mirror
7 Novelty postcard Reverse Writing in Mirror
German DWIG Very good 
Cute novelty postcard which was never sent and has no writing on the divided back. The message reads "Before your mirror, for a while, Hold up the card, T'will make you smile." I HAD to hold it up, but I'll leave you guessing as to what it says! The card is clean with just a few tiny spots of edge wear.

Park & Tilford's Temptingly Delicious Chocolates & Bon Bons Trade Card and PostCard
8 Park & Tilford's Temptingly Delicious Chocolates & Bon Bons Trade Card and PostCard
New York, New York Park & Tilford's Candy Very Good 
A pretty image for a New York City candy company which produced a combination trade card and post card. The message "Park & Tilford's Temptingly Delicious Chocolates & Bon Bons Are The Best" runs across the bottom of the card leaving plenty of room for a message. The card shows a divided back and has not been written on, nor postally used. In 1899 Park & Tilford's were a high end grocery store, but by 1912 were receiving accolades for their industrialization which allowed them to make better candy faster. The card is clean with a small loss of color to lower left corner of face and some toning to the back. Will arrive in plastic sleeve.

Postcard Birthday Greetings Mother of Pearl
10 Postcard Birthday Greetings Mother of Pearl
Unknown Location Unknown Publisher No date, but likely early 1900's Very Good Condition 
What a pretty card this is. The box which contains the birthday greeting is actually a card pasted on the larger one, including the green bow. Inside the oval is inserted a beautiful touch of mother of pearl. The card is also nicely embossed at decorative corners and at the "frame" around the mother of pearl oval. There are two penciled names on the back, but they could be easily erased. Though card is not dated or postmarked, it's likely from the early 1900's due to the fact that it was printed in Germany. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Postcard Flagstaff, Arizona Kopper Kard
11 Postcard Flagstaff, Arizona Kopper Kard
Salt Lake City, Utah Kopper Kard Co. pre-postal code Fine condition 
This card is really attractive.The embossed metal captures the beauty of the Arizona Desert and is just oversized enough to do it justice. Card measures 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" which makes it too large to fit a postcard sleeve, but will arrive in a small cello bag that fits it perfectly. There's no date here, but the publisher's address shows no postal code, much less a zip code, so it's clearly vintage.

Postcard Flamingo With Actual Feathers (early 20th century)
12 Postcard Flamingo With Actual Feathers (early 20th century)
Unknown Location Unknown publisher No date, but early 20th century Good-plus 
This is without question the most ephemeral postcard ever. The body of the flamingo is covered with a variety of actual feathers in an array of colors. The card is very nice overall, but does show a few tiny soil marks at the area of the neck just next to the feathers. I don't dare try to do anything about it for fear of damage.Tthe only other fault is a small flat crease to left lower corner. Card has a one cent postage stamp, but it was never marked. There's no indication of date, but I do know one thing that helps. The recipient is Bertha Randall -- I had a lot of cards sent to her and almost all had a 1900-1912 postmark. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Postcard Hunting Near Akron, Ohio Couple Kissing, Rifles Next to Fence (1910)
13 Postcard Hunting Near Akron, Ohio Couple Kissing, Rifles Next to Fence (1910)
New York, N.Y. United Art Publishing Co. 1910 Very good Condition 
I love this card! A young couple is caught kissing in the woods while both rifles are leaning against a fence -- though the young lady IS holding on to hers! The card is postmarked Akron, Ohio and was written on the divided back on September 6, 1910 by a hunter! His message reads, "Arrival all OK, but have not been hunting yet." It was sent to Lorain, Ohio. Card will arrive in brand new plastic sleeve.

Postcard She Sells, Sea Shells SIGNED by Artist L.E. Hick 1907
14 Postcard She Sells, Sea Shells SIGNED by Artist L.E. Hick 1907
Germany 1907 Very good 
Cute little girl selling seashells from a basket. Pastel shades and a tongue twister too! "She sells sea shells. Here are the sea shells she sells!" The card is signed on the lower left corner L.E. Hick, '07. I am not too familiar with this artist, but I have seen Hick cards with a Japanese scene, once again though it was someone selling something. This card is not postally used, but it has a name on the address portion of the divided back -- Arleigh White. The message reads, "Arleigh, do you remember me? I would like to see you. If you can't read what is on the other side of this card ask Paul to read it. Rose K." Card is clean with just a little darkening at the lower left corner. Will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Postcard That Opens Best Birthday Wishes
15 Postcard That Opens Best Birthday Wishes
Published in Germany Unknown Publisher circa 1915 Fine condition 
I do beleive that this is the prettiest postcard I have ever had. Not only does it have a ribbon and paper lattice-work on the front, but it also opens to reveal two pages. The first just reads Kind Regard, but the second one says, "May Fortune smile on you today, And may she never grow colder, And be beside you all the way, As each year sees you older." The card is in fine condition. It has writing on the divided back, but was not sent in the mail. On the left side is the date 1-2-15 and on the right is this: "To Mrs. Gumferd from Lillian and Emily Schreitle." Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Silk Fringed Card
16 Silk Fringed Card "With the Sender's Love" Little Girl and Jump Rope
Unknown Unknown Unknown Very Good 
I love these silk fringed cards, especially when they depict a scene with people -- which this one definitely does. Though her shoes look more like flower girl shoes than jumping shoes, the cute little wearer in the candy striped dress poses with her jump rope. At the bottom it reafs "With the Senders Love", but there is no message on the back. The card measures 4-1/2"x7-1/2" including the gold fringe and is very clean and nice.

Tinted Postcard Earl Carrol's Vanities Showgirl
17 Tinted Postcard Earl Carrol's Vanities Showgirl
Los Angeles, California Earl Carroll's Vanities 1940's Very Good 
Looks like Halloween judging by this 1940's era postcard featuring an Earl Carroll showgirl. I used to have an actual collection of this stuff (yeah, really) --programs, menus postcards etc.) from Carroll's days as a showman/producer/restauranteur who owned a rather racy L.A. nightspot (Earl Carroll's Vanities) on Sunset Blvd. known for its gorgeous performers. I knew a lot about him at the time, but all I remember now is that he died young (in his 50's) in a 1948 plane crash. The card has not been used and will arrive in a plastic sleeve. This one is may favorite due to its deeper color and most bizarre costume. I think it's got a Carmen Miranda vibe going on!

Of the three cards I have I think this one is the most elegant. Card has been discounted due to light foxing to left side and top edge. Otherwise very nice and unused.

TRG Postcard Merry Christmas Elaborate (circa early 1900's)
20 TRG Postcard Merry Christmas Elaborate (circa early 1900's)
No location stated TRG No date stated Very Good Condition 
This gorgeous unused postcard is a thing of beauty, a little gift to give or keep. The card is heavy (for a postcard) due to the metallic-looking portions and the padded red fabric trimmed with red ribbon that makes a bow in the upper left corner. The center section shows a Christmas tree beneath which are the words "Merry Christmas." The outer frame is a bronze color and the center is gold. The card is very textured and very clean with just minor wear. No writing on the divided back. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve. 
Price: 24.00 USD
