This vintage post card is an example of the art deco styles that were popular in the early 20th century. It features a Madonna and child plus an additional angel, surrounded by holly and scroll work. The card was beautifully embossed and gilded. The card was not mailed. No manufacturer name is present, but the card was printed in Germany. The stamp box indicates in English “Domestic One Cent / Foreign Two Cents” suggesting it was intended for the American market.
