German postcards of the early 19th century are a thing of beauty, many such as this one, show heavily embossed and colorful designs.

It was not postally used, but as you can see, it does have a penciled message which reads, "Nov, 29, 1916, Dear Friend, Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving Day, Yours, "A". It was addressed to Miss Sophie Nundahl, Rutland, North Dakota. View more info

All dressed up for Christmas in a red coat, a fur-trimmed hat, and a muff. This card is German and is embossed which is why the penciled message on the back is virtually unreadable. It was sent, however, to Miss Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The date on the postage stamp is likewise obscured, but it appears to be 1908. Card will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Price: $10.00

Publisher: 1908

Seller ID: 0050

Condition: Very good


An ornate design with a shiny gold background and embossing make this one a standout. There is a slight postmark to the front, so the price has been adjusted for same, but it's still a beauty with just a little corner wear! Note the kids in the whirl of smoke from Santa's pipe. There's no indication of origin, but there is a printed notation on the back that says St. Nicholas Series No. 3. The message on the divided back reads "How did you find everybody in Logansport?

I love this card -- I've seen it with a gold background, but never silver until this one came along. The young woman holding the fireworks looks like a Gibson girl. The card is embossed, though lightly, has a divided back,and has never been written on, or sent in the mail. It's in excellent condition -- near fine -- and derives from the first decade of the 20th century, though is not dated. It will arrive in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Price: $12.95

Publisher: Raphael Tucks & Sons: 1906-08

Seller ID: 0010

Condition: Very Good


There's much to like about a Tucks postcard and this one is no exception woth its heavy embossing, especially on the clock, and it's decorative border and gilding. The one shows very little wear. The last digit of the postmark date is obscured, but I think it's either a six or an eight. The message just says From Mabel, but it sas written to Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. I seem to have a lot of Spophie's cards! View more info

Very pretty card in pastels and very imaginative too. The card is embossed and clean and attractive. It was sent Feb. 11th, 1910 to Bertha Randall, Medina Ohio from her cousin who lived in next-door Seville. The message, written in pencil, reads, "Dear Cousin, Will be there with bells on. Will get there about 4:10 or 4:20. Mabel." This is an interesting message for two reasons. One is the slangy "be there with bells on", a comment which remains part of the vernacular today. The other reason is the specific times quoted. Mabel must have been taking the interurban from Seville, Ohio to Medina,... View more info
