Title: Vintage Postcard Lady in Pink Red Feathers In Her Hair SIGNED A. Astt
Book Condition: Very good
Publisher:  Unknown 1900-1909
Illustrator: Astt, A.
Seller ID: 0778
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."
