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. View more info

As always it has to pass the calendar writing problem -- I won't buy them if they have writing, unless of course it was owned by someone famous. The paintings are beautiful, each one is in color and is a dustjacket fro... View more info
