Description
First World War post cards,the embroidered silk postcard is a common souvenir of the First World War,this small collection of six cards include birthday and Christmas greetings, a ‘silk pocket’ effect also features in three of the cards into which a tiny pre-printed card can be found. the embroidered postcards were very popular with British soldiers who often sent them home, they were sold in thin paper envelopes but were seldom sent through the post in them, usually they were mailed with letters, for this reason, they are often unwritten, with no marks on the back, any message having been sent in an accompanying letter, one of the birthday cards has the message written on the back, `For Sonny, 5th Birthday, 14th/4/17, From Daddy', The hand-embroidery is thought to have been carried out in domestic houses as ‘out-work’ by civilians in France and Belgium, and in the UK by Belgian refugees, (6) - Stock Ref:2353-7
