Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
A “Clifton” Happy Thought Postcard; “Produced and Published by E.W. Savory Ld, Bristol, England.” From Series No. 779B and copyright to the aforementioned. The postcard face shows a gracious lady in a green dress, leaving her rural country cottage with a bowl in hand. Three dogs peer up happily. The classic text reads: “Loving Birthday Greetings”, “I send a card to greet you, Hoping you are well, Wishing that prosperity, May ever with you dwelt.” All things considered the postcard is in good condition with only minor damage. The distinctive stamp is a bright scarlet, King George V, one penny (1d) from the 1912-24 issues. It is carefully positioned with vibrant colour. The partial circular date stamp is from Kettering, which lines up nicely with the addressee: “Miss Santon (Possibly Ganton), Cranford St Johns, nr Kettering”. The message reads, “With best wishes from Kate.”
