May I offer......
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: From France, here's celluloid Greeting Card with a handpainted spray of florals to the front. Reading "Bonne Fete" on the front cover (Happy Birthday), the card has a blank paper interior to replace the original inside paper that was too far gone to keep. The spine of the card is held fast with a bit of pinky-peach rayon ribbon tied in a bow - the ribbon serves to hold the plain paper insert in place. The back of the card is also celluloid.
SIZE: 3" x 5-1/2" approx. when closed.
CONDITION: Everything is pristine though the original back cover does show indications of its age - light scuffs/marks only.
FINAL COMMENTS: What a way to gift a unique treasure to a loved one! This card is more than likely ONE OF A KIND and who doesn't like receiving something that no one else has! No envelope as of now but if I find one to fit, I will include it with the purchase. In any event, the card will arrive in a glassine envelope which can be used for presentation.
