VINTAGE CHRISTMAS FOLK ART MISTLETOE CHURCH GOLD SILVER SILK SCREEN GREET CARD:
Vintage silk screen printing process Christmas card on paper, dating to circa 1950s/1960s. Printing process is high quality silk screen with with beautiful heavy inking.. Overall condition is good, showing some minor shelf wear overall, with a tiny scratch on black on front of card, ( with some " ghost impressions " from original inks, which adds charm and character to card and also gives provenance to the high quality of the inks and silk screen printing process ) generally clean ( a few tiny spots on inside and back of card ), ( ghost impressions are not considering unclean ) and an indented paper clip mark on the inside and back of card, which I believe is from the original price ticket which came with card, but is no longer present ( I have seen these marks before and also have cards with the original clips, therefore, I assume the mark is from the original price tag, but I am not certain ). There is one minor crease on inside and back of card. Overall size is approximately 4.75 inches 5.75 inches. This card is also wonderful for framing, to personalize, collage, to be dry mounted, craft and art projects and scrapbooking. Front verse reads " is blank " Inside verse reads " Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year." Back of card reads " Silk Screened with the numbers 504 and the hallmark of the letter " R " in silver. Please write any questions. Thank you. .
