SUBJECT: A charming vintage postcard entitled "Chums," postmarked 1907 and published by Valentines, with the photograph credited to Charles Reid. This postcard was mailed from Boston, Massachusetts, to Elsie Larson in Waltham. "Don't forget Wed. R.R.S.," reads the enigmatic message. I think it's unusual that the girl sitting on the dappled grey mare was permitted by the photographer to keep wearing her pince nez glasses for the picture, and I love the careful hand tinting work meant to enhance this already idyllic scene.

HORSE NOTES: This pretty grey cob mare or large pony sports the banged (cut short) tail of the era and a too-snug halter, but check the super zoom scan to see her interesting white linen browband and simple chain lead rope. Good thing she's got her face deep in the feed bucket - that chain would leave one nasty burn if she were to startle and take off.

ITEM DETAILS: This used vintage 1907 postcard measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches. It is in excellent condition, with minor corner wear, a lightened strip along the bottom edge, and age-related darkening visible on the back. It's free of creases, chips or stains.

SHIPPING & HANDLING: Paper items are wrapped with care in acid-free sleeves, placed between sheets of cardboard and shipped in secure packaging within two business days of purchase.

VINTAGE: All vintage and antique items have unique histories and are offered for sale in exactly the condition they were found. They are sold “AS IS.”
