As mentioned earlier this month, my husband and I are building a vintage postcard scrapbook — one postcard at a time. The album spans 100 years from 1860 to 1960 and has many slots yet to be filled. I’m sharing my new and old cards up to New Year’s Day. From here on out they’re all New Years’ themed. Scroll down to see previous postcards.
I just love this sparkly lithograph. It’s in excellent condition, the paper more like cardboard than my other cards. It doesn’t show in the scan but here and there it’s decorated with gold paint or very thin foil similar to leafing. You see it as a sparkle around the candle flame, the stork’s eye, the pointed tip of the scythe, and a bit on the baby’s hair. The card must have been tucked away safely in a book for the gold to hold up for nearly 100 years. I’m going to guess pre-WWI. 🙂
