Image for Leather Postcard Easter Greeting

Leather Postcard Easter Greeting

By: N/A

Price: $8.00

Publisher: 1907

Seller ID: 0034

Condition: 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. View more info

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. View more info

German Best Wishes Postcard Bird and Flowers

Price: $8.95

Publisher: Germany, 1917

Seller ID: 0123

Condition: 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." View more info

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. View more info

Seller ID: 0173

Condition: 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. View more info

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. View more info

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. View more info

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 allowe... View more info

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 ... View more info

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 r... View more info

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 t... View more info

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 indicat... View more info

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. View more info

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 th... View more info

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... View more info

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
