Divided back, unused, embossed postcard. Series 209. Printed in Germany. Publisher and printer unknown. Circa 1907 – 1914.
From our Ethel Main Collection, this card has a trade mark logo of either publisher or printer (or both) that is unidentified at this time: showing below, a capital G inside a rectangular artist’s palette with brushes “attached.”
The front of the postcard shows a pretty typical moonlit tableau of a church in a snow-blanketed country setting, with Christmas bells hanging on the left and poinsettias in the background. Nice though! The verse reads:
May richest gifts of Christmas cheer
Bestrew your path to=day.”
The card was addressed to someone’s mother, and the sender wrote: “Hoping you will have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Love, Helen Main.”
