antique Birthday cards....so charming ....so sweet♥

Beautifully illustrated early 1900s Birthday invitation postcard ..... adorable little girl sitting at table with her dolly...birthday cake and roses on the table..... "Come and join me at my birthday party.....Date....... I will be..... years old......Name.....Address....."

this humorous circa 1920s art deco flat card, litho on heavy stock~ has golden details, it reads,


these two flat cards, dated 1928 have similar (wonderful) classic deco graphics and are likely from the same card line, they both have minty green, shades of pink, blue and black printing as well as golden edge details......

#1 has a little bird cage and pretty flowers...I love how the cage is empty and the blue birds are perched outside :) it reads
"On Your Birthday ....Today I'd like to say 'Hello', and 'Good for You', and 'Hope You'll know A year of gladness and success and health and luck and happiness"

#2 beautiful roses, it reads, "Birthday Greetings ....I wish You Happy Birthday! I'm hoping, too, somehow, That you'll contrive To be alive A hundred years from now" .....it was given 82 years ago!

another charming flat, heavy stock card from the same era, this little blue card has birds which are caged and uncaged! "Happy Birthday, Friend ...Since 'abody has 'abody Who really is a friend ...On a Birthday shan't 'abody Happy Greetings send?"

so cute ~ this little birthday greeting has die cut detail and is on heavy stock~
as with the other cards it is charming right down to the pretty font, colorful details and sentimental greeting

"Happy Birthday Little Girl!"

"I've a very special greeting
To a very special Miss
For a very special Birthday
With an Extra Hug and Kiss"

you can find a wonderful selection of old and original keepsake Greeting Cards ~old store stock available in my little etsy card shop!
