On offer for sale is a wonderful framed collection of six embroidered greetings cards from World War One. The recipient of the cards would appear to be the daughter who would have framed these during the same period as the cards. Embroidered card such as these would have been quite expensive back then especially with rationing and shortages of supplies. This piece feels like a time capsule from WW1, as everything is original including the frame from that same period in time. The cards are all embroidered and two of then are in the design of an envelope, and the one in the top right corner also has a printed date etc. in the background area (Best Remembered 1915). The condition of the cards are original and show some expected discolorations and creases, but no more than would be expected for a piece of this age....These cards would likely have been mailed home to England back in the day during WW1. The original frame, which the cards show no sign of ever being removed from since they were put in there, shows wear and usage marks. The original backing paper is a little tatty, but still retains its original old framers label. The edging around the cards has a nice embossed design. Approximate dimensions of the cards are 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches overall, and the frame is approx. 20 inches by 15 inches. Please check out all of the images to see the wonderful embroidered detail work in these vintage WW1 Greetings Cards. I really can't convey enough good things to say about this piece, it's just a very special piece which has a lot of nostalgia and history behind it. As with all vintage items such as this you should not expect them to be perfect as they will show normal signs of age such as wear, usage marks and discolorations.
