The light cream background on this antique postcard has light creases and stains, but miraculously enough, the pink jacquard fabric is pristine as can be! I normally wouldn't offer a card with this much staining but it has an interesting historical note: Not, - Made in Germany. World War I didn't start until 1914, but tensions obviously were already building in 1907 when this publishing company copyrighted this design. The card itself was mailed in 1910 from Astoria, Oregon, to Oakville, Washington. Now, I wondered about the strange punctuation in the "Not Made in Germany" title and as luck would have it (coupled with my OCD propensity for research) I came across a blog about abstract games. There was a board game from the turn of the century called "Not Made in Germany." It's an England versus Germany game. My notion, which could be completely wrong, but I'm offering it, is that the tag line "Not Made in Germany" was already copyrighted by the board game company, so this publisher had to put in the fake punctuation to alter the phrase enough to legally use it. Whatever the reason, however you punctuate it, the "Not Made in Germany" postcards are rare. I found one on a blog and one on an auction site. Just under 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
