I thought I'd post a few examples of classic pre-WWI embossed Thanksgiving postcards, for the most part printed in Germany. The "wishbone" card is signed Ellen Clapsaddle, a prominent designer of this era. Four of these cards are postally used, and date from 1909, 1911, 1911, and 1912.

I love the artwork and symbolism like Uncle Sam and the slogans. Great stuff!

This was at a time there was actual "time" between Halloween & Christmas to really celebrate Thanksgiving. Now it's Halloween and then immediately Christmas in the stores.

A few more Tahnksgiving cards for the topic,the first card is from Little River Cal,1908 and is a bit worn.









This next card was sent from Prattville, Cal to Hardy, Cal, also 1908, It is an embossed ear of corn with Ellen H. Clapsaddle's signature. Supizingly, the post marks printed fine on the embossing. Very similar to philb's 1910 ear of corn card, but shows a little more wear.







This last card brings it all to the table! We've got a sparkely gold edge and our two pilgrams have gold buckles on their shoes, There's a red, white, and blue banner, and of course a turkey! And just for desert, it is postmarked with a very scarce postmark, Manzanita, Cal. Unfortunatlly, someone has removed the stamp.

It started with the sprinkles.

The effort people were putting into my incoming PostXing cards were oft-times stupendous, so I thought I'd try to step up.

I bought some embossing powder (and glue pen & heater-blower), and accented a few cards for PostXing and friends.

My granddaughter liked the results, so I started looking for other types of decorative postcards she might like.

Soon, I was starting to enjoy some of the Thanksgiving & Easter cards ... and starting to worry about my T-levels.

Here's my fave-to-date.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Thanksgiving brought to you by Edgar Allen Poe?

Halloween illustration re-purposed for the next holiday?

I call this one 'The Vultures On The Vine'.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

I call this one "Grumpy Shows All". I love that expression on his face.

Very re-assuring, too; if this card appeals to me, maybe my T-levels are okay, after all.

The illustrator, R J Wealthy, did other postcards for Tuck's, as well as a book of insects.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey
