Description

This unusual Christmas Greeting card from the early Edwardian era is green with an antique white background. Two sides have a green border with Lily of the Valley trailing from top to bottom. A lovely bouquet of Lily of the Valley centers the card, under which is written, in gold leaf, "Friends Ever".

Inside is a Greeting "For a Bright and Happy Christmas" and a beautiful signed H.M. Burnside poem:

"The sweet and gracious
time is here,
To every gentle heart
so dear,
Its promises with
you remain,
Till Happy Christmas
comes again!"

This lovely card is in very good vintage condition. There are no rips, tears, bends or stains. Inside is signed from Mildred to Iva with no other writing. There is no indication as to where it was printed, but these cards were usually printed in Germany. It has been in my family's collection since the 1950s, at which time it was found at an Estate sale of two sisters that were well into their 90s, one of whose name was Iva.

A very special greeting card in fabulous antique condition. A great gift for the collector of antique/vintage cards and postcards.
