Description

Lot of 5 antique romantic and Valentine's Day greeting postcards, dated from 1909 to 1912. All are written on and all but one are posted. All are printed with color lithograph printing; 5 are embossed, two have gold ink. All exhibit some elements of Victorian and / or Edwardian design.

Of special note is the card with purple flowers and the message "Though Far Apart yet Joined by Love." It has a red, white and blue and gold border, and it also has a symbol you might associate with something negative, but rest assured this card predates that connotation several decades. It is a very old symbol originating from India that is quite benevolent and considered to be a sacred and auspicious symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism and dates back at least 11,000 years.

Condition on the fronts is reasonably good. Some cards have wear to edges and corners. All have some yellowing, some fading of the writing.

I photographed all of these cards in enough detail that you should be able to ascertain the condition, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. The contrast in the photos is just a little bit higher than in real life to make them more readable.

Great for your collage / card-making needs! Great imagery.
