Raphael Tuck & Sons of London is well-known to collectors of vintage postcards and greeting cards. Tuck created beautiful items like this four-panel Happy Birthday card.

Postcard-sized panels depict plants and flowers in autumn colors (including a touch of metallic gold). The baby blue fringe surrounding the panels picks up the small bits of green and teal in the artwork.

The 5" x 3-3/4" panels read:
With loving Birthday Greetings
With Best Wishes for a Happy Birthday
Many Happy Returns of the Day
Many and Ever-Happy be the Birthdays

Condition Notes:
-There is a penciled inscription on the front "To Lillie - August 5, 1887"
-Previous price is penciled on the front lower right corner and a hint of another in the upper right.
-There are a few scuffs and pin-sized depressions (not holes)
-Fringe is in very good condition, especially for a 120+ year-old!
-The slender cords that tied the card closed are shortened and slightly frayed
-Colors are rich and unfaded,

Please consult all photos. I am happy to answer questions or send additional pictures.
