Description:

EAS (Trade Mark) Post Card, number 2102/5. “Published by E. A. Schwerdffeger & Co, London E.C. Printed at their workjs in Berlin. The obverse shows a young lady and some easter eggs, with the text reading “Loving Easter Wishes. All thats best in life be thine At eastertide, and every time.

The stamp is a fair condition early King Edward VII. It would be a De La Rue & Co printing as the datestamp shows it slightly preceeds the Harrisons (and later) printings. It is double stamped with a Bath circular date stamp (CDS) and this dates it to the 15th of April, 1911. It is addressed to a “Miss Mabel Kiermunt[?], c/o Hun[?] Johnson, 35 Coril[?] P.l., Bath”. The message reads, “Dear Mabel. Just at Cara + Buffon[?] you are not going to Church tomorrow early. If no you come along to our little church by [saigh?] I have got that you from Tlo for Bath[?]) ** Not I’m very, very unsure that this is what it says as I’m finding it particularly difficult to read!
