Happy New Year! It would have cost one cent to send this post card back in the day.
I like the little angel with his glass of champagne! The balloon post card was actually made in Germany for the Samuel Ward Company of Boston. At first glance, the card has sort of a 1970's look to it.
The little house in the woods card was printed in Germany too. The four leaf clover on the second card denotes good luck for the coming year. I wish you the best of luck in 2012. My New Year's resolution is to publish more of Madeline's memories!
Here is a link to an Antiques Roadshow collection of Halloween postcards which details some good info on all vintage postcards. I'm handling them more carefully now!
