CHARMING EMBOSSED BEST WISHES ANTIQUE / VINTAGE POSTCARD
I think the scene on this best wishes vintage postcard is positively charming as is the verse. A spray of multi-coloured carnations holds the center spot on the card and is framed with two vignettes, one a lady sitting on a log by the water’s edge and another pastoral countryside scene. The verse brings wishes of health, wealth, fame and blessings – something we can probably all use a bit more of.
Postally used the card has a cancel from Halifax Nova Scotia Dec 20 1911. Very good overall condition with strong colours and good corners and the embossing adds a lovely feeling and sense of elegance to the card.
CREATIVE TIP – place this card in photo corners and affix it to blank card stock. This allows you to write a message of your choice on the inside and the receiver can add this card to their collection or perhaps even frame it.
