    China stamp art collage postcard.
    Would appreciate if any collector can give me some background of this postcard such as date and number in circulation. Are there any other countries making this kind of postcards?

      This is very unusual, have not seen anything like this before. It looks like there is a date on the last mans back of 7-9-34. Maybe made around that time??

      Thanks for your comment. I cannot see the date. I was told this is from around 1920.

      This stamp with the junk boat I linked here is said to be dated as 1925 on Pinterest, the collage includes a part of it on the lower segment of the chair transport, the upper half shows a military figure that I feel maybe from the 1930s when China was at war with Japan due to the military invasion and occupation by the Japanese.

      Another important fact, the Chinese hate the Japanese for all the horrific deeds they committed then. As collectors and dealers (me), it is important for us to know the difference between Chinese antiques and Japanese antiques because of this.

      You think they should know? They don't, once China became communist in 1949, the knowledge about and the possession of decorative antiques was considered an anti-communist sentiment and was severely discouraged during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s, so whole generations have no idea, unless the few that have kept that expertise let them know.
