I know every ephemera collector wants it perfect, without blemish, without any issues after over 100 years, and I can't always do it, but this time I have it for you! This gorgeous antique card set with bright, colorful lithograph die-cuts onto the pop-up lacy Dresden paper was left for over a century in it's beautiful embossed original envelope, kept away from light, heat, moisture, etc. so it really is in the best condition.
No pencil signatures, no tape to the back, no bends or tears... perfect. Just as you see it. Very hard to find them in this kind of condition, especially as the paper they used then is so thin. The accompanying envelope was addressed to the original intended in beautiful script but that is all, and there shows some age to the envelope, but not the card at all.
Measures in the envelope about 8" x 5 1/2". Very rare condition and a great find with the envelope, circa late 1800s likely German in origin.
