Unused Antique Victorian Greeting Card for Easter Presentation
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: Die cut, floral, unused, charming, perfect, hard to find! Yep, all adjectives to describe this adorable Victorian era Greeting Card! For presentation at Easter, the front of the card is a cutwork/paper lace design - just below it is a chromolithograph of a cross and a white floral - not a lily - looks like a cross between a Daffodil center and a Daisy. The card opens to reveal a reproduction die cut of angels, a poem and a glittered panel to cover the original sentiment. The poem reads "He conquered death And brought life and immortality to Light. There's a message 'mid the trees Waking now to life anew, There's a whisper in the breeze And in springtide's gentle dew, Life is evermore victorious, Trove for aye is sovereign glorious; Easter breathes to every heart Winter shall at length depart." Poem by Margaret Hayscradt. New side tie for the spine as the original ribbon had disintegrated. Comes with an envelope that is slightly larger than the card.
CONDITION: Excellent for its age - can be gifted once more.
SIZE: When closed, 3" wide x 4-3/8" high.
FINAL COMMENTS: Keep, display, download the graphics, gift - the possibilities are endless! With modern day cards commanding hefty prices - why not gift ANTIQUE for about the same price! The card is every bit as collectible and wanted as the present itself!
