The garden gnome started in 1847 in Germany and lives on today. That makes this and other Gnome postcards all the more interesting. These mythical fantasy creatures brought good luck and watched over gardens and farms. Today they live on in gardens and even travel advertisements!
This postcard features two Gnomes working on delivering their colored eggs. One is tossing eggs from the roof of a home. Great colors and numbered 881 so it is part of the series of the other card I just listed. Gold embossed details on the ornate rounded door and window. Postmarked 1909 with writing on the back this card, like many others was made in Germany. Condition is very good.
