This is an embossed birth announcement postcard. It features a stork with a baby in a blanket. The stork is at a door that says "Boarders wanted Children preferred." At the bottom someone could fill in the weight, sex and birth date for their new baby.
It was not mailed and would take a one cent stamp. On the back is Series 517, along with the logo of Taylor, Platt & Company Austria. The company was in business from 1906 - 1916.
Condition: Typical handling and edge wear but no damage noted.
A nice postcard to add to a baby shower gift.
