SALE 1909 Raphael Tuck Embossed Easter Postcard.
Take a look at this beautiful antique embossed Raphael Tuck postcard for Easter, with "Joyful Eastertide" greeting. There is a wonderful yellow and wine colored cross that almost feels like silk, but I guess it's just in the raised line design like the silver background. Wrapped around the cross, there are beautiful delicate flowers in a creamy yellow and mauve to purple like color, almost a blood color which would indeed be fitting for the Easter season.
Someone has torn the stamp off the back, taking just a bit of the paper there where it is postmarked, and there is "minimal" wear around the edges, but actually, it is in great condition for a postcard more than 100 years old.
Mailed from St. Louis in 1909, this postcard also bears the Raphael Tuck marking and seal, and it is just stunning! For sure, if you love antique holiday postcards, you will want to add this one to your collection.
