Image for Postcard Couple on Skis Spying Through A Window

Postcard Couple on Skis Spying Through A Window

By: N/A

Price: $8.95

Publisher: European, Likely Norway, Unknown: Unknown

Seller ID: 0443

Condition: Good


It's a cold and snowy night and a young couple on skis can't resist a peak through the window where another couple are embracing. The colors are very attractive, as is the the little tableau we get to watch. The card originated from Norway, as the two stamps are marked Norge, but of course that doesn't mean the card is Norwegian made. The divided back offers no clues, as the message & address are written in a foreign language. The card is quite good, but does show some foxing on the back and a tiny bit of corner wear. Will arrive in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Condition: Good


This one is actually titled Viviane et Merlin which of course refers to two mythological characters of literature. It's a strange card in some ways as he appears very frail and vulnerable, while she, though young, seems the opposite.The setting is a floral bower and they appear to be alone. The card has a divided back and a German stamp and Berlin postmark.The message appears to be in German. The card is very clean and nice with just a small bit of corner wear. Will arrive in a plastic sleeve/ View more info

A pale green border offsets this pretty image of a young couple who may be saying goodbye. The handsomely dressed woman is seated on a bench with her luggage at her feet. The man rest his hand on her shoulder as if to communicate regret at her departure. A tiny bit of wear to two top corner tips only fault. Though of European origin, the card's sender was from Youngstown, Ohio and the recipient from Warren, Ohio.The card was postmarked June 6, 1910 and the message reads "I will drop you a few lines and thank you for the letter. Hoping you all kinds of luck out in Niles. Send my best to all. Yo... View more info

Price: $10.95

Publisher: New York, Hamforth & Co.: 1907

Seller ID: 0646

Condition: Very good


This is a rather unusual pose given that the couple are sitting on a piano with their feet on the keyboard cover! The image is in black and white and the card in very good, clean condition. The date is 1909 as there is a copyright statement in the lower right corner of the image. Yhe card is postally unused, has a divided back, and there is a name on it which I can;t quite make out accompanied by the date June 18, 1907. View more info

Vintage Postcard, Calling Cards, Victorian die-cuts Hands and Flowers

By: N/A

Price: $15.00

Publisher: Germany, Unknown: 1910

Seller ID: 0695

Condition: Very good


This is such a pretty grouping of a vintage postcard, two calling cards, and two Victorian die-cuts, brought together by a common theme -- hands and flowers. The silvery postcard was sent to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio in 1910 from C.W.R. who wrote the flamboyant message upside-down. The two calling cards appear to have been homemade by affixing die-cuts to an already printed card. The larger one is 2"x4" and the smaller 1-3/4"x3-1/2". The die cut design is lifted up to reveal the names -- Mr.& Mrs R.H. Fombaugh and Maggie Fombaugh, respectively. The areas around the designs have toned, but... View more info

Price: $8.95

Publisher: International Art Publishing Company: Circa early 1900's

Seller ID: 1480

Condition: Fine


Very crisp, clean card with sharp corners and no stamps or messages except for a long ago owner's name penciled on back. The name, Sophie Nundahl, helped me date it to the first decade of the 1900's. I have many cards of hers that have postal stamps. This card is a pretty little "rhapsody in the blue". Will arrive in protective sleeve. 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

Postcard H. Gervex The Bird of Venus Nude Woman Lying in the Tide

By: N/A

Price: $14.95

Publisher: Berlin, Moderner Kunst: Unknown

Seller ID: 2159

Condition: Very Good Condition


Beautiful card showing a young nude Venus lying in the tide as it moves toward the shore. The four dark brown corners provide a frame for the pastel colors and the spume of mist which engulfs half of the sky. Through that mist you can see the arm and a tress of her long red hair. The card is lovely with no writing on the divided back. The logo at the bottom corner spells MBK beneath which is the number 2481. Only faults are two small light spots that appear to be shadows of something adhered to it, though there's no damage to the paper. The English title of this card is The Bird of Venus. It's...
