Antique Colorful Victorian Greeting Card W/Envelope


I am pleased to offer an antique greeting card measuring 5 3/4″ X 4″.  Front features three layered pieces with multi-colored raised floral designs throughout.  Top piece features attached back pieces creating a 3-D effect.  Inside reads “Over The Sea – Hasten thee landward, gentle breeze, Steady and straight over sunlit seas; Find the maiden who stands dim-eyed, Gazing afar from yon casement wide.  Tenderly lift those locks so light, Touch, like a hand, her forehead white, Breathe a sign in her dainty ear, Bring one kiss for her lips to wear”.  Card is unsigned.  Envelope is embossed throughout the front and is hand marked “Mr. William Peabody” on front.  Quite a delightful piece.

In good condition showing only light wear throughout.  Envelope shows light staining and some tears.  Wonderful card displays well and would make a fine addition to any collection.
