Rural Cottages, Travelers On Hold-to-light Htl Vintage 1909 Christmas Postcard:
$20


Up for offer is a beautiful vintage Christmas postcard. On the front is a lovely lithographic illustration of rural snow-covered cottages. Travelers can be seen passing by them. What makes this card very special is that when you hold it up to a lighted lamp, the light shows through the windows of the church, the cottage windows, the Christmas greeting below, and the full moon above. Give yourself a treat and supersize image 1 so you can better see the masterful artwork. If you look closely you can see how the card has been die cut to allow for the illumination. Printed in pre-WWI Germany, this postcard has been postally used, and has a 1909 cancellation across the one-cent stamp on its divided back. What a lovely, unique and scarce postcard! Some lucky buyer will walk away with this one--will it be you?
