Beautiful little girl dressed in a Christmas outfit in front of a wreath holding what appears to be a Rust Craft Xmas postcard. The Xmas postcard in her hand has the distinct Rust Craft signature tan color. A very iconic postcard symbolizing the Rust Craft Company. This is possibly the very first Rust Craft Xmas postcard, a card we have never seen before.
From Wikipedia: The company was founded in a bookstore in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1906 by its owner, Fred Winslow Rust. The first Christmas card was printed on heavy tan paper and included a brief message in two colors. All of our postcards are genuine and authentic. We do not sell reproductions. We try to sell complete sets.
We also like to put together postcards from the same series. It can take years in trying to complete a set from a specific series. This will allow the collector to put together a collecton in a much shorter period of time. All of our pictures are scanned using a high resoluton scanner, so every detail can be seen including the many Halloween postcards that are embossed.
With a high quality scanner, you can clearly see these embossed details. Scanning also elimates any glare or flash that can discolor the picture. Our descriptions of the postcards will be straight forward, emphasizing on the maker, artist, etc... When postcards are postally used, we cannot expect them to be perfect, nor we would want them to be.
