Lady in Egyptian Costume - Art Deco Ladies Greeting Card
The unearthing of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 ushered in an era of Egyptian fascination, making all things Egyptian incredibly fashionable! This Art Deco beauty originates from a very unique piece of paper ephemera: a 1920s or 30s bridge tally card made by Gibson and Co. (later known as Gibson Art Company, Gibson Greeting Cards, Inc., & Gibson Greetings, Inc.). The original artist, an employee of the company, is unknown. These meticulously designed cards served as both place cards for the game and a means to keep score during spirited rounds of bridge, while also doubling as charming keepsakes for the gathering! Adorned with intricate illustrations and delicate details, these vintage tally cards offer a glimpse into a time when bridge was a beloved pastime!
We have reproduced them as they were originally: die-cut and embellished with gold foil. We provide a dark card with a deco pattern, which makes an ideal background to frame or otherwise display the image, along with a decorative envelope so that one of these lovely cards can be shared with a friend!
