Vintage Christmas single greeting card dating to circa 1940. Printing process is photogravure, steel plate engraving. The original box read steel engraved etching... This is only one card..
But I see the printing process as photogravure under strong magnification. I cannot discern the artist's name. Condition is very good, clean, NO hand writing, with normal slight shelf wear overall. There are some deckled edges, from hand made cotton pap and envelope is sealed shut and will not open. Card is naturally published, as image is laid down to a plate impressed card stock paper with texture and gold around edges.
Overall size is approximately is 4 10/16 inches by 5.75 inches, which includes margins. There is a plate impression on card.
Verse on front reads " is blank " Inside verse reads " Merry Christmas And A Very Happy New Year " Back of card is blank and has an impression for the plate " strike " on the inside verse letters.
