Vintage 1949 3D Rust Craft Mothers Day Greeting Card/Box Cherry Blossoms Trellis:
$38.58


This is an extremely rare Rust Craft, 3D style Mothers Day card, from 1949. - Illustrations provided by the Rust Craft Artists' Guild. First off, please take a look at the last two pictures first, to fully understand the method used to create the Card's overall visual. I temporarily inserted a pinkish/orange Slurpee Straw between the mostly clear plastic sheet with the Trellis, roses, picket fence, grass areas and initial walkway imprinted on it, to better visualize the three individual layers of artwork utilized to create the 3D effect. This was novel in the late 40's. Note the Border area, the clear plastic with artwork and the artwork on the 3rd layer (showing the house, tree, bushes, hills and yard). Amazing, for its time. To be clear, the Trellis, roses, picket fence, grass areas and initial walkway are all printed on a thin sheet of mostly clear plastic and give (for 1949) a really neat sort of 3D effect to the overall picture and it looks like Cherry Blossom branches, leaves and flowers surround the card border. Note that The "MOB" signed the card. Her four children. This card is approx. 8 x 9 in and does come with its original box. All will be sent to you from our pet free, smoke free and C-19 free home. (Pssssst....... won't let us type out the precise name of the V. = the china virus)
