More lovely vintage postcards. These celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
These very pretty postcards were printed in Germany.
This one dated 1908, with the little girl, is from a German-American Novelty Art Series. Her cart is filled with a horseshoe, mushroom, shamrocks, and some, unknown to me, blue flower. Both the girl and cart are embossed. Gold foil is used to detail her dress, cart, and horseshoe.
This card dated 1914, is so pretty. Once again, those blue flowers. Maybe they are forget-me-nots? Gold foiled embossed lace anchor the corners of the card. Horseshoes are gold foil and embossed across the top.
St. Patrick's Day Greetings heads this 1908 postcard. Beautiful golden harp is in front of a green flag. A cute white top hat sporting a pipe and bit of shamrock are tucked in its hatband. Shamrocks float gracefully upward on the card front. Gold leaf details the harp, flag staff and shamrocks.
