700 New Linen Cards Listed

Wallpaper Delivery Van
I listed 700 great linen postcards this week. Many views, and a few interesting advertising cards - like this Wallpaper Delivery Van. Both the front and back of this rare card are great!

Linen advertising cards like this one are always in demand. Partly because they are so rare, but also because of the great imagery and cross-domain appeal.

The Dentist


I found myself in Baltimore not too long ago. I wouldn't recommend it. I went to the National Museum Dentistry. Really.

It wasn't too bad actually, and you don't have to fight your way through the crowds of schoolchildren like you do at the Smithsonian. I did like this postcard of the monkey dentist and the hippopatamus. Mounting with clear corner tabs like this behind a nice matte is a good way to go if you don't want to use any adhesives.

I don't think I've seen any other cards from this (French?) series. If you happen to know more about this artist or series please let me know.

Valuable Postcards

I keep a close eye on postcard prices. I thought it would be useful to do a monthly post on the most expensive postcard sales, so I decided to post those in a new blog:

I'll try to update it monthly...
