“Herzlichen Glückwunsch, zum neuem jahre!”
“Warm congratulations to the New Year!”
We’ve traveled to Germany to offer New Year’s wishes, albeit belatedly, with a beautiful little card bringing good luck. The design shows a leaf in green, secured by a golden horseshoe, and in the center of the leaf, two ladybugs; all framed by a golden cord fastened at the top ends by four-leaf clovers. The card appears to be signed on the inside and shows a message on the last page from the sender, but we need someone fluent in German to translate.
New Year’s Card in German, embossed on front cover. Circa 1900.
