    Strange Birthday Card, Tucks, Printed in Saxony, no, sometime probably in the early days on the 20th,Century. The art is really nice, but I am puzzled by the fantasy subject. A cute little laddy in his sailor suit climbs the stem of a lily-of-the-valley flower sprig, going after a huge --Beetle? The little boy is so happy with his find, but not so sure the bug is!
    I added some photo editing ''cause it is early in a hazy morn and my lighting faded out the photograph. That made the look of this card, more soiled than it is, In hand it looks good!
    Front reads: "To Wish You All The Best That Life Can Give Of Happiness And Sweetness".

      Really odd subject for a Birthday card.almost as nutty as Berl Ives sheet music "Ugly Bug Ball" remember that? Funny thing is I laid the card next to me when I got it on here, and went on doing something else on the computer--then I happened to glance to the right and slapped really hard at the "BUG" with a small shreak. My eyes fooled me!! I wanted to remember to tell you.

      Be happy they didn't glue on a real bug!

      E-Gads! I AM happy about that. What a thought! The bug does really look authentic... Nice unsigned art on this card. Thanks for the comment. Lois

      I did a have an antique Christnas Card with this same bug on it! It was harnessed and pulling a cart with kids in it--they were beautifully dressed. It must be some kind of a "lucky" bug. In Egytptian lore, I know it must have held an honored place because it is seen so much. The only beetle I kind of like is the "June Bug: with his irridescent colors --so beautiful! Do you know of any superstitions about the bug on the postcard?
