Vintage c1909 German Color Lithograph Valentine Postcard – Heavily Embossed - Blonde Girl and Brunette Boy Cupids in a Cloud – Addressed and Un-posted
Chromo-lithograph color artwork is un-signed. There is a publisher's logo for "SL & Co.", and "Made in Germany" on the back. Un-posted but hand-addressed simply "Paul Orman, City", (the nephew of my husband's grandmother). Only the initials "Q.B." are in the message section.
PHOTO NOTE: The photos distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person. Minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION: Standard-sized postcard is in excellent condition. Any flaws are visible in the photo scan. The white border may have some age discoloration. The back has a brown cast which may be original. The diagonal white mark across the top of the large heart is slightly raised. If it is a crease, it does not extend through to the back-side. The lighter areas on the face of the large heart appear to be high-lights, but could be wear.
