I’ve taken a break from posting bird illustrations to share a lovely gold embossed 21st birthday card dated 1938.
The embossed 21st birthday card shows a small colour illustration of a woman wearing a pink and black frilled dress; she’s sat at an open window with her needlework and a gentleman can be seen outside tipping his top hat towards her. In the bottom right-hand corner of the card is a decorative gold embossed 21st key with a horse shoe over the top of it and inside is a verse with the sender’s greeting and date.
This is an original scan of the front cover:

This card came as a job lot from Ebay with the intent of sharing them for your media, art and craft projects. You can find more vintage birthday cards throughout my blog and as ever, all are free to download.
