Vintage HALLOWEEN Postcard Printables

         


 
           
 I wanted to share more beautiful examples of postcards from Artist


 
Ellen H. Clapsaddle (1865-1934)
 

   Ellen was an American illustrator/ commercial artist from New York,
 
 in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
 
  Her style is easily recognizable and greatly admired.
 
           She is known as the most prolific souvenir/postcard and greeting card artist of her era.

My favorites include the adorable children's faces that are in

most of the illustrations.

According to collectors, her Halloween cards are among the most valuable and sought after.

I'm not one to celebrate or decorate for Halloween, but I thought I would  share these cuties.
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope you enjoy this collection. Maybe you will be inspired
 
to create something with one or more of these postcards.
 
Let me know if you have a favorite!

  4. I LOVE vintage cards! We went to a country store once that had drawers and drawers of old vintage cards that belonged to other people! I actually bought an Easter one and the note was inside the card from the person who received the card many years ago. It was really neat!
