Postmarked 1910, this embossed Easter postcard offers "A Loving Easter" as its greeting. The scene forefront is a lovely little girl with long wavy hair and a big pink bow. The girl holding a white rabbit and sitting in a field of lilies is much more than a pretty picture for those who like to look at the symbolism behind the art. The trumpet-shaped white Easter Lily is said to symbolize "purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter." This child seems to repeat many of the same attributes as the lily. Rabbits, known for their fertility, are often symbolic of the new life of spring and the new life that Easter represents. But, even without considering the symbolization, the postcard really is a pretty picture!

There is light wear to the gilded edges. The corners are somewhat soft with the top right corner having minor damage. Overall, the 100 plus year old postcard remains in Very Good Circulated Condition.
