Postcard, Embroidered LaceAbout this object
This postcard, made in Paris, bears the embroidered message "To my dear wife'. But underneath the lace flap there is a surprise, which we almost overlooked when cataloguing ... a tiny card says Happy Birthday, and on the reverse is written, 'and many happy returns together, Bob'. This message is dated 24 Jan 1918 so we imagine it must have been a very special card sent from far away, from someone just wanting to be 'together'.Maker
