Incredibly rare Titanic postcard, made of silk and in excellent condition. This card is extremely rare to begin with, but to see one in such superb condition is even more of a rarity. The card is addressed to Miss E.
It reads: Dear E - We are now nearly at Queenstown. It will help your collection.
Interesting Note: A Charles Fowles and his wife, frequent travelers on first-class luxury ocean liners, died on board Lusitania when it was torpedoed and sunk in 1915. Silk postcards were first introduced in 1902. These postcards have the address and message side printed in the conventional manner. The scenic side has a small Stevens woven silk picture, surrounded by a pressed, relief patterned border design. Stevens postcards are now very rare, and collectible.The item "RARE SILK POSTCARD TITANIC HANDS ACROSS SEA WHITE STAR LINE POSTMARKED & STAMPED" is in sale since Friday, January 27, 2017.
