The Letter

One of Tuck's "Oilette De Luxe" postcards of an illustration by Jennie Harbour. She was an artist working in the art deco period who illustrated childrens books and Tuck produced many cards featuring her work. Sadly little is know about her, but she has left behind her delightful illustrations.

This card is one of six in the 'Early Victorian' series. It is always exciting to receive a letter but I think this particular one is special, the envelope lies on the floor in the hurry to open and read.  And the best friend is not going to miss out on the long awaited message. What is in the letter?

Beautiful card. I love the dresses and the excitement of the girls reading the letter. I wonder what's in the letter, too! Happy PFF!

That's what's special about these 'message' cards. Is this one unused or was there a message?

No Dave it unfortunately is unused, and the back is rather grubby so I didn't post. If there had been a message I am sure it would have a lot in common with those PCs that promise a letter:-)

I so love beautiful illustrations such as this. There is something about that period of time that I am so drawn to. Just beautiful!

I adore Jenny Harbour cards. I have only one and it's damaged. Yours is lovely.

Sorry to be so late coming around to visit!
