Antique Postcard - Comic Post Card - Artist Signed D. Hillson - Art Comics in Black Series 2700 - Gibson Girl Style


In this antique postcard a beautiful woman in Gibson Girl style, has a tiny man on a leash. The text reads: "Tied and impossible to get away". It is artist signed with: copyright 1907 D. Hillson. Hillson illustrated a number of collectible postcards, mostly using the style made famous by Charles Dana Gibson. This comic card was mailed in 1908, and the message is amusing because the writer congratulates the recipient on his winning his wrestling bout. It is written on both front and back. The back of the card has Series 2700 Art Comics in Black 25 Subjects printed. It is a divided back.

CONDITION: Fair. The card has tanned a great deal, and there is a crease across the front as well as a creased corner. You should be able to see this in the photos. However it has obviously been kept flat since.

SIZE: 5 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

All my postcards are kept in postcard sleeves. I endeavor to describe their condition accurately. If you require more information please message me.
