3-15/16 x 6-1/2 inches approximately. Lovely color lithograph of three female angels holding hands. Brown border and verse beneath angels: "Faith, Hope, and Love, Easter renew!" No publisher info. I would date card from c1890-1910 and would say it's an English card. Good-quality paper, but not cardstock.
Not signed, but there are a couple of numbers and a squiggle on the back in pencil. Corners are soft and have diagonal creases to bottom two, bit missing to top left. All have rubbing and some top paper layer worn away as do other parts of the margins. There are a couple of small beige/dark brown spots which look like a printer's mistakes. Card has normal age-toning, particularly to back and thereare residue from some old glue and lifting to four corners of back.
Lovely angel trio image that would be a wonderful addition to anyone's angel collection--great to mat and frame.
Please look carefully at my photos which speak more to condition than my words could. Colors area bit darker than my photos show. If you require more info about this item, please e-mail me. Card ships with cardboard protection and will be sent First Class, either Letter or Package rate, depending on final envelope size, thickness and weight. If sent Letter rate, tracking information is not offered by USPS.

COMBO SHIPPING: I will be happy to combo ship, but must charge a modest handling fee (typically between75 cents to $1.00each forlightweight items andup to $1.50 each for heavy items suchas magazines and books added to the package). doesn't offer a fee discount on combo purchases and treats each item as a separate order with the full listing and FVF fees applied, so I mustincorporate some of those expenses within the total price of the item.If you are purchasing more than one item from me, please wait for a revised invoice, as the automatic one that sends shows full shipping foreach item, and not the discount combo pricing that I offer.
Timely payment is expected. If there will be a delay, please email to let me know.
