Antique Christmas Postcards
Similar to antique Christmas cards, post cards were also used in Victorian times and around the turn of the century to convey one's holiday greetings. Many are adorned with lace, glitter, flocking or silk trim and feature a variety of designs from the whimsical to the heartfelt.
Vintage Christmas postcards are a great starting point for the beginning collector as many attractive examples can be purchased at inexpensive prices.
The stamp and postmark on a used post card will help determine the printing date of the card.
