Wonderful for a winter vignette!
Here you have an instant collection of blue hued moonlit snow cards from the 1940s. Four cards are in this grouping. This way you get 4 that you know will work well together in a vignette for a table, shelf, to hang or sit on the mantle like they used to do in Christmas past. I'm seeing them in person and put these together! (: Unusual to find cards this old in such wonderful condition.
Beautiful blue, gray, & cream hues with some browns and brick brown reds. Lots of tree/twig silhouettes also tie these together along with snow covered houses and churches. The yellow glow of home light out the front door & window of one match the city lights in the village and the moonlight over the church steeple. All cards are used, no envelopes. Three are in very clean, wonderful vintage condition, no tears, creases, or foxing. Super condition. The fourth card, the largest with the twig and snow covered arbor (last photo), has some holes in bottom right front. (white area in corner) Otherwise beautiful shape with die-cut opening with house showing thru.
Largest card measures 5" by 5 14/16". Smallest one (roof top nite scene with stars) measures 4 1/2" by 3 1/2". Great group to give as a gift for the lover of vintage.
My fav part of these, besides the mellow muted colors, is the matte patina and texture of this great old paper. You can buy new cards with nice old scenes but you can not duplicate the ambiance of great old paper that has seen many Christmases! Just no comparison.
All are french folds which means the paper is folded in half then on itself again. So, the front and the back end up being double sheet. Makes them sturdier should you want to stand them up.
As always from SeaSeaRider, smoke-free! Many of these cards in my shop were so lovingly cared for. Hard to believe they are 60 years or older. If you want an instant collection with different colors/ theme for a decorating vignette, CONVO me and I can photograph some that coordinate well together. I have alot and it will take me quite awhile to list all! Here is the link to another card in my shop if you want a 5th for this vignette.

For the price of a nice new card you can get one filled with vintage nostalgia! These old cards are great to send. If there is a pencil signature, you can often erase . If ink just write "and" then add your name. (: Sure to bring a smile. Great for table decor, put on a shelf, tuck in the frame of a mirror, place on the nightstand by a guest bed, add to gift baskets, baked goods, hang on the tree, or string them up like they did in Christmas past. I have a boatload of beauties I'll be listing for days. (:
Shipping is for mainland U.S. Convo for Alaska, Hawaii with zip, also for shipping OUTSIDE U.S.
Visit my 2 new shop sections: Vintage Christmas & Christmas cards. I can easily combine shipping on more than one card and I try to do that on all my items if they can be shipped together. Convo and I can reserve and adjust shipping OR if you don't want to wait to hear back, you can check out and I can refund thru PayPal.Will be listing alot more over the next few days & weeks.
Also BIG SALE on my vintage SEASHELL prints from the 1960s, both blk/white & color . I also have vintage Valentines and other ephemera, letterpress, books, bird & botanical prints, real OLD shells, old bottles, and my original mixed media art. Much SEA-inspired!
