A New Year’s postcard with a twist, this one probably dates from around 1908.
I just came across a few nice embossed holiday cards, including this unusual New Years greeting. It’s a beauty!
Mailed within West Virginia in January of 1912, this New Year’s postcard has written on the reverse:
Hello Jim. We are having some good frosty weather. Thermometer stood at Zero yesterday. Is some below this morning.
Published by Julius Bien & Co., this postcard features a young woman toasting the New Year beneath a lucky horseshoe. The embossed card was mailed within the State of Maine on Dec. 31, 1910. And I’ll take this moment to wish the best of luck to you all in 2014.
An embossed New Years postcard, postmarked Dec. 29, 1910.

A New Years sentiment found on a very art-nouveau postcard. I’ve seen this type of distinctive text on similar postcards, and while attractive it’s a little hard to read.
I’m posting this one last New Year’s postcard, a dandy that includes the Baby New Year firing a champagne cannon. (while a rooster crows with approval) Did Salvador Dali design this?!
Here’s a fun pair of postcards that feature….New Year’s elves? The second one is postmarked 1908 and neither indicates the publisher.
