Antique Artist Signed Dwig Valentine Postcard - Comic Post Card - Printed in Germany - Series No. 402


Shipping to United States: Free

A humorous Valentine postcard by postcard artist Clare Victor Dwiggins, who used a jaunty 'Dwig' as his signature features a dapper young man in a straw boater being held aloft by a heart-shaped balloon. The card is printed in Germany, with a G in an artist's palette logo (I haven't tracked down the publisher's name yet), and also proclaims it to be Valentine Post Card Series No. 402. The front reads: "To My Valentine. My heart is as light as a balloon. No, not with air!"

Dwig was an extremely popular and prolific postcard artists who was born in 1873, and died in 1958. He started as a cartoonist, and then was featured first on Tuck Cards. Very charming.

CONDITION: Good with a divided back, just a name written on the back in pencil, but it is bumped and worn on the edges, with some staining.

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.
