This embossed die-cut Easter greeting card dates to the early 1900s. Litho printed on heavy embossed card stock, it features two children under an arch of blue flowers. The boy holds a lamb while the girl offers it some greenery to eat. The fold-down front panel says "Wherefore Should We Fear?". When you pull down the diecut front, the inner verse is revealed: "Fair is the light of thy glory, Oh beautiful Easter Morn, Golden the sceptre and story, That comes with the early dawn". The card is neither marked nor signed but there are some tiny penciled number markings on the back. Light soiling consistent with age, no damage.
