|As I look thru my box of treasures, I'm going to enjoy a cup of tea in this gorgeous three piece Zehendner & Co Barvarian dessert set that I got at the auction.|
|Most of the vintage cards are 3D pop up/fold down....some are quite large and some are small.....|
|Almost all of them were addressed to Eileen and are from the 1930's.|
|How much was a beautiful card for your special Valentine in the 30's.....|
|15 cents for a large one! |
I'm not sure, but I would guess the average hourly wage in 1930 was about 15 cents. I know the minimum wage law was enacted in 1938 and was 25 cents an hour.
|I don't have a favorite card yet, but this big honeycomb basket is in the top three....|
|I love the way the basket has honeycomb all the way so the card can stand alone. It has three honeycomb hearts on each side of the basket .....but, everything folds down flat for easy storing. There were two of these baskets in my box.|
|How much was my box......$17.50.....what a deal! 6 large cards, 5 medium, and 9 small.|
|This card is so pretty and I love what was written on the back....|
|Sweet little poems are hand written on the back of the card to his Valentine! |
The third photo shows the "printed in Germany" stamp that is on some of the cards..
