The silk card was once an ornate greeting, hitting a peak of popularity in the early 20th century, especially during WWI. Silk cards can be either a design printed on silk fabric attached to a postcard back, or a card with silk fabric attached as a border or decoration. Collectors seek cards that have maintained their color and that seem unique or handmade.
