These are a couple scans of antique greeting cards from the early 20th century. "Art Publisher to Their Majesties the King and Queen", Raphael Tuck.


(Larger versions will be at my site next weekend.)

sorry just an offhand reference to all the fine detail in the images, and a comment on the general hyper-embellished look -- if you imagined it as a three-dimensional object the slender bits if brought near to the eye could conceivably cause severe damage or even poke it completely out. Damn, it's not as fun when you have to explain it ;)
