This is a lovely set of three Thanksgiving postcards from the T-21 series which has as a copyright symbol a large N in a triangle. Each card has a caption at the top in gold "Thanksgiving Blessings" with various fruits in gold to either side of the caption. Each is copyrighted E Nash on the reverse.

At the bottom is this verse "I'm sorry for this old turkey; I can hear him pray: But taint my fault, I didn't invent Thanksgiving Day." CONDITION: There is slight corner wear along with some foxing to the reverse. The corners are rounded. There is writing on the reverse in pencil, but the card was never stamped or canceled.
The second card depicts a young girl with arms upraised to a large turkey gobbler. At bottom is this verse "Eat, drink and be merry - to-morrow you may die Applies to Turkeys as well as to you and I." CONDITION: There is slight corner wear including bending at the very tips.
