Thanksgiving Turkey on Spit Postcard

Thanksgiving turkey postcard from the 1920's depicting a turkey roasting on a spit in a fireplace, titled "Thanksgiving Joy."  This card doesn't have a manufacturer or publication date, but it was mailed in 1922. 

The colors on this embossed card are bright and it's in clean condition, with just a tiny bit of wear at the tips. The writing on the back is faded, but it's a charming note from "Mother Olson," who must have run a boarding house for university students. 

This card would be a great bit of decor for the home at Thanksgiving, or include it as part of a gift for a hard cooking Thanksgiving host or hostess!

Measures: 3 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Grandma by the Pot Bellied Stove Birthday Card

Old fashioned scene of Grandma by the Pot Bellied stove and a funny little Birthday greeting.  Funnier yet is the handwritten greeting inside - chiding the recipient for her "middle-age spread" - Not very acceptable message today!

Measures:  5" X 6 3/4"

Christmas Postcard

Vintage Christmas postcard of a family sitting around a fireplace. Mother is using a spinning wheel, the children are praying and father is reading from a book.

This translates to "God who holds the children dear. Look to me, little as I am. Happy New Year!" This is a beautiful piece of Christmas or New Year Ephemera. 

This card is in Excellent condition. The back is written on but not postmarked. It is a Whitney Made postcard.
