1911 Thanksgiving postcard with High Relief Airbrushed Image and Flocked Fruit Add-on - image 1 of 3

This 1911 Thanksgiving postcard has a lot going on. In addition to proclaiming Thanksgiving Greetings, there is a turkey in high relief draped over a gold-trimmed circle with the greeting. Below the circle, there are embossed fruit and vegetables that have been airbrushed and overlying some of this are several pieces of round fruit that are done in flocked material over the original image. The turkey is airbrushed brown with a red wattle and white tips to its feathers. The card is in good condition for its age and postal use with bright colors and no wear to the high relief portions of the image. As with some of the higher end high relief cards, there is a second layer of paper over the back of the card so that there is a more smooth writing surface.

The back of the card is divided and the card is postally used. The paper layer over the back has age yellowing. The card has a canceled stamp and two postmarks, neither of which is completely clear. The date is 1911 and the card is sent from somewhere in Ohio, but the city is illegible. The card is printed in Germany.

The card is addressed to Mrs. Henry Richard 619 Douling St. ??Kendallville Indiana

The message reads: We are all well. Hoping you are the same. Why don’t you rite(sic)? how is ben getting along. Give me his address. Your sister Mary.

I can ship many postcards for the same price as one as they are very light. If you purchase several, wait for me to send you a revised purchase order reflecting an appropriate shipping price before making your payment.
