1918 Embroidered Red Rose Birthday Greeting Postcard – Brooklyn New York Postmark - Polish Language Message

Vintage standard-sized Birthday Greeting postcard features embroidered red rose insert framed in a rectangular window card surrounded by lithographed scrollwork. Captioned “Birthday Greetings” followed by rhyming couplet poem.

The back is a separate card that has been glued to the window-frame front.   Postmarked March 18, 1918 from Brooklyn, New York with a Polish language message addressed to a Broadalbin, [upstate] New York address. Publisher is unidentified. Made in the USA.

PHOTO NOTE: Scanning frequently distorts the clarity of the image and the intensity of color. When viewed in person, this card image has greater clarity and color intensity, compared to the more muted "grainy" look of the scanned image. Slight discolorations and minor defects are also exaggerated in scanned images, and most are actually much less noticeable when viewed in person.

CONDITION: PLEASE EXAMINE THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. Embroidered stitching is bright and shiny, and in excellent condition for its age.  The linen fabric background shows light to moderate light-brown age-discoloration in scattered places. Front-side lithographed window frame card has no tears or folds, but is not perfect – with some areas of age discoloration, and blunted corners. Age discoloration is much lighter and less noticeable in person than appears from the scanned image. The back-side message card is firmly attached to the front-side card, and is in generally good condition, with some damaged spots, surface creases, crushed corners, and very light-brown generalized age discoloration. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS
