Brefkort, Serie 141 – c. early 1900s. Image is embossed /raised, pale gold ink on sleeve and in floral frame, not mailed.  The rose is textured and bright almost metallic look with fabric, probably silk.  Something like “Yours in death” or “Yours until death” in Swedish.

Brefkort, Serie 141 – c. early 1900s. Image is embossed /raised, pale gold ink on sleeve and in floral frame, not mailed.  The violets are textured and bright almost metallic look with fabric, probably silk.  “Forget me not” in Swedish.

Lines were across the whole back for the address, so the sender resorted to writing on the front. Post marked 11/27/1906. No publisher information.

“COPYRIGHTED 1909 BY JULIUS BIEN & CO., N.Y.” 8503 – reverse indicated “Birthday” Series Number 850

No publisher information, reverse indicates printed in Germany, 693.  Not mailed, estimated early 1900s.

Not mailed, estimated early 1900s. The reverse indicates it is a “post card” in many languages so this probably had a wide distribution or was sold in a location where people speaking many languages passed through.  Based on their shoes, I would say the art is Dutch because those are some tulip field wood hoppers if I ever saw a pair.  The rhyme is German though.

A.S.B 344, not mailed. Made in Germany.  Raised / embossed image with gold metallic ink.  Circa early 1900s.

Ser. 222, postal date stamped 4/17/1908 but I can’t read the city name.

A.S.B 351, made in Germany, mailed but it was sent in an envelope so there is not date stamp. Estimated early 1900s. Sent to Cora Albert, Tonica, Ill.

Dear Cora wish you a happy birthday From Carl & Wilmetta

“No. 3221” is written on the back in pencil, it is otherwise blank. It was glued in a scrapbook and then torn out at some point. Not dated or mailed.
