This wonderful and scarce embossed Halloween postcard was done by GD&D, or Gottschalk, Dreyfuss and Davis, who operated from 1904 to 1915, in London and Munich (marked on back left side). In 1915, Davis left the group and they became just Gottschalk and Dreyfuss, so we are able to date this card to no later than 1915, and its series 5073. In addition, it has a Winsch back, as they are called, so perhaps we are seeing the work of one of the John Winsch illustrators here.
It features an incredible silhouette through a window that the little girl in bed with her black kitty cat can see as her clock strikes midnight, with JOLS, a full moon and a scary witch. It was never used or mailed, so is in good condition with some scuffs on the front and vibrant color and detail. It will come in a rigid clear sleeve so you can display it. Great subject matter on this one!
Please see the photos as they show the condition and detail well and use the "Click to Expand" on the bottom of the pictures to see them fully.
