It’s been a few days since I’ve had a chance to post and I only have a few minutes this morning since I’ll be sewing another backpack purse today. However, I do have a few things to take pictures of to share with you, but in the interim until I have a moment to get that accomplished I thought I would share another vintage postcard I have in my collection.
This particular postcard is very different from the rest that I have. First, the teddy bear has a soft plush type of feel. Second, there is nothing written on the back to indicate the date or era it was from. The only clue is the space where the stamp belongs which says “Place One Cent Stamp Here”. If guessing, I would think this is from the early 1900’s, maybe 1915-1920 or so, but that would just be a guess. There is also some wording on the bottom of the card which says “ibrography Pat App’d For by Wm G. Langdale Cin O”. I don’t know what “ibrography” is so I did a quick “Google” search and found nothing. My guess would be the process by which this postcard was made with the textured bear, but that is just a wild guess. In any case, enjoy the postcard and I’ll post my latest backpack purse when it is finished along with the fabric finds I purchased the other day while checking out our local quilt shops with my good friend Barb.
