This otherwise rather drab birthday post card is brightened up with the addition of coralene beads and glitter on the face of the card. The embellishment is on the flower sprays that pour from a circle on the front. The card reads "Birthday Greetings" and on the bottom of the front, is the verse, "Forget me not as I shall ever think of You." At the bottom of the card in very hard to read script is Design Copyright 1912 by A. Horwitz New York.

The card had bumped corners as the only flaw.

The reverse of the card is imprinted with P. S. Dresden, Series No. 4803, Printed in Germany. There is no evidence that the card has been mailed in spite of the presence of an address. There is also a brief message penned in a delicate and very decorative hand.

Message reads May 31, 1913 With all good wishes for your Birthday From your daughter Opal.

GENEALOGY: The card is from Opal and is addressed to her mother Mrs. D. M. Bell 630 Seminary St. Danville, Ill.
