VINTAGE 1930s THE WHITE HOUSE DELICATESSEN WOODBLOCK LETTERING GREETING ART CARD
VINTAGE 1930s THE WHITE HOUSE DELICATESSEN WOODBLOCK LETTERING GREETING ART CARD:
Card may vary in color in person as all iphones, apps, smartphones, tablets, computers, tables, monitors show colors different. Honestly, I cannot ascertain where The White House Delicatessen once was as I researched but I am certain the deli was in the US, possibly Ohio, New York, or Chicago, but I am not certain of location back in those days. Gorgeous vintage french fold greeting card with a woodblock design and woodblock lettering as a printing process ( the text signature is not woodblock printing ) . The card has gold illumination. Since the card dates to the depression era, the printed overlaid the nice paper ( the paper at that time would have been expensive due to design and printing process...so the seam and overlay of paper is 100% original to card...please see sale images. )Card does NOT come with original envelope but I shall provide an envelope. Condition is good with slight shelf wear overall, generally clean ( slight buckle to card in one place and a lower right corner crease ) , NO handwriting, with a text signature of The White House Delicatessen ( signature is raised shiny black ink, text signature is not woodblock printing process ) . Approximate size is 4.5 inches by 5.25 inches. Front verse reads " Christmas Greetings " Inside verse reads " and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year. " Back of card is blank. Please write any questions. Thank you.
