Happy Thanksgiving

If you like Vintage Holiday Images then you are probably already somewhat familiar with this artist’s work. While you may not know her name, generations of families have been sending each other holiday greetings which feature the artwork of Ellen H. Clapsaddle (1865-1934). Clapsaddle is recognized as being the most prolific postcard and greeting card artist during the time many consider the Golden Age of the art/souvenir card.

Thanksgiving Greetings

This vintage postcard offers a Happy Thanksgiving wish along with a basket full of fruit – apples, pears and grapes.

I like that this postcard strays a bit from the traditional. No turkey, pumpkins or fall harvest type imagery. Instead, we have a bountiful amount of luscious fruit spilling out of a woven basket and a simply Happy Thanksgiving holiday greeting.
