PHOTO NOTE: The photo/ flash distorts the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. Hand-colored bas relief paper mache cards do not photograph well. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person. Stains and other minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are much less noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION: PLEASE EXAMINE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. Unused, but vintage greeting card - in excellent condition for it age, but not perfect. Colors are vibrant and image clear. NO creases or folds, and only light margin or corner wear. Egg-shell cast is partially original but probably darkened with age discoloration – some light smudge marks on the Paper Mache, mostly around the edges. Inside pages are age discolored, but other wise clean, undamaged, and in good condition. ANY FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
