1890s Victorian birthday greeting card appears unusually somber - a boy in Colonial dress holding a small blank envelope, with the recipient's name and Saint Louis address filled in with black ink, and surrounded with an ornate spiral border on a black background. The back is also unusually somber for a birthday greeting - an ornate Victorian vase and flowers design on a solid black background.
PHOTO NOTE: The scanning process distorts the clarity of the images displayed, particularly in the gallery view. The muted "grainy" look is definitely a distortion. The clarity is excellent when viewed in person. Slight creases, small blemishes, minor defects and light soiling (in any) are exaggerated by the scanning process, and much less noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION NOTE: In excellent condition for its age. Small spots of scuffs and color loss here and there in the background, mostly on the back. Rounded corners have some wear. Those flaws visible in the pictures are much less noticeable in person.
