This gorgeous romantic silk postcard " To My Sweetheart" was made in France,sold in England It is circa 1912-1920. The embroidered pansies design has been done by machine on a cotton organdy type base.The colours are very fresh and bright with no loose stitches.There is very minimal foxing on the cream embossed outer frame which has a good crisp decal edge.The card is unposted but has been written on in ink.

It is becoming harder to find these silk cards in good condition with no rusty stains and foxing;so this is a an exception.In fact in my whole collection this is the best example.I think it may be in part due to the cotton base rather than the silk base on some of my others.Maybe the board is a better quality which is why it is not foxed.

Generally the card is in good vintage condition. I have another romantic silk card postcard in this section of my shop
