As mentioned earlier, my husband and I are building a vintage postcard scrapbook — one postcard at a time. The album covers 100 years from 1860 to 1960 and has many slots yet to be filled. In the spirit of the season from now until New Year’s Day, I’ll share cards from my collection. Scroll down to see previous posts.
Too bad this one doesn’t have a date stamp. The postcard was never mailed. It was kept in pristine condition until it came to me, perhaps tucked away between the pages of a book. There are clues to its age to be found here if you look closely. For one, the tree has candles. Going by the line of the gowns, I’d say it has a late Art Nouveau quality to it. But not quite. The lettering and bold colors say something different. To me these artistic elements suggest it’s in the transition period moving from Art Nouveau to Art Deco. The Art Nouveau style went to about 1910. The hair styles here suggest early 1920s. Deconstructing is fun. Oh so many clues!
