This is a rare embossed signed Frances Brundage postcard, which has a 1913 date stamp on it. What makes it so rare is the date stamp of 1915 which reads: World's Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco 1915. This date stamp is advertising the upcoming Pan-Pacific games.
The front of the postcard features Father Time and a young girl; A Happy New Year is shown on the upper right side. Frances Brundages' signature is show on the lower front edge. The back of the card as a one cent stamp and the two dates, which have been postally stamped. There is writing on the entire back. The left edge reads: "New Year Series-Artistic Postcard No. 1301. Printed in Germany. The lower left edge reads: G (in a painter's palette), with the word Trade Mark.
The overall condition is fair, with a bend in the lower left edge, a small bend in the upper left edge along with small black marks on the upper portion; this appears to be black ink used in the postal markings on the back. There is paper separation to the left of Father Time (see photo), which is 1 ½" long.
The postcard is 5 ½" across & 3 ½" top to bottom.
This is a rare signed Frances Brundage postcard advertising the Pan-Pacific games of 1915. This would be a great addition to any postcard collection.
