A couple dressed in their Easter finest. Check out the bustle on that chick! I included the back of the embossed card because, well, I like the way people wrote in those days.
Published by Bamforth & Co., this divided back Easter postcard shows a hatching chick watched intently by two kittens.
How’s this for a crazy Easter postcard? With illustration by comic artist Hans Horina, this divided back postcard shows a rather aggressive bunch of bunnies pummeling Jack Frost with Easter eggs. It was mailed in 1911.
It’s finds like this that keep me interested in vintage postcards. There’s just something about this image, babies cracking open eggs with hammers, that really speaks to my inner surrealist. Dating from approx. 1910, this unusual Easter scene was painted by the renowned Swedish illustrator Jenny Nystrom.
Easter postcards are great, aren’t they? This imaginative card was mailed in 1908.
Mailed from Kansas City, KS to Lead, South Dakota in 1913, this embossed Easter postcard offers an imaginative look at a very distinctive rooster… with human arms and hands!
An early embossed Easter postcard with a bunny and two chicks. It’s interesting to note that Google searches for “Easter postcards” draws more people to Postcard Roundup than just about any other. (Stone Mountain is another biggie) Anyone know what’s going on here with the sticks/string?
I’ve always considered Easter postcards to be some of the most imaginative holiday cards, as with this rather thought-provoking image. Perhaps I’m just too sentimental, but I find myself really impacted by the message on the reverse, a charming correspondence that was sent so long ago:
Dear Aunt Addie,
Hello, this post card is for you from your little niece. Lottie
Here’s another oh-so-interesting Easter postcard. What can I say….caption anyone?
This Easter postcard is just as cute as, well, a sack of bunnies!
