If there was ever a queen of the postcards, Ellen Clapsaddle would certainly be in the running for the crown. I always know when I encounter one of her cards that it’s likely to be super cute and have a child or two. In this case, we have a little boy and three chickens.
Often, when these Victorian Era artists created children and birds illustrations they created something that was sure to make you smile. And this vintage Easter card is no exception.
It’s Easter morning and our young boy in his red coat and brown knickers begs his chickens to help him out. He charmingly requests that the four white hens lay him some eggs to bring to his friends.
A Bright Easter to you
is my basket,
it’s empty you see,
I want you to lay lots
of eggs in for me;
That I, with
for Easter may send,
Some lovely, and
to my dearest
I wish this one was a bit bigger but hopefully you’ll still be able to use this Bright Easter Greeting card.
