Here’s a cute collection of 1940's birthday cards to my grandmother. No one ever suspected that she saved these cards in a box under bed until they were discovered 35 years ago. Taking a whack at a croquet ball, the little girl with the blue feather in her bonnet sends birthday wishes to Mother - a Regular Pal. It’s a Buzza-Cordoza card, but the gold foil that shows through the cut-out corners has left tell-tale stains. Still cute. Dated 1947. It’s 5-3/4 by 4-1/2 inches.
The yummy chocolate cake with lots of candles is a fold-out card dated 1944. Printed by Rose Moderne, it also measures 5-3/4 by 4-1/2. The little lamb for Grandma’s birthday is signed for me by my mother and dated 1949. Just 5 by 4-inches, it is a Norcross card. The shy little girl is also a Norcross card the same size as the lamb card. It dates 1945 and comes with the original envelope. Love ‘n Kisses is another small card signed in my own childish hand with a note to Nanny on the back. The last card with a puppy leaning over the fence with birthday wishes is a cut-out dated 1943 and also a Norcross card. It measures 5-1/2 by 4-1/2.
