Hand Painted Postcards

I posted about Hand Painted cards previously but it's lost in a thread about ebid here: http://postcard.co.uk/messages/postcard/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2124&p=4753&hilit=ebid&sid=7cdf497117108daad5bba459d0e51b0a#p4753 However, I feel that this Cinderella area of postcard collecting is worthy of a thread...

Re: Scholastic Production Co. Belfast

Still adding to my collection of cards but virtually no information about the company or the artists that supplied work to it. Any information or cards still urgently wanted! Thanks in advance. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-SaPNmIMwOSo/W1rOoIh7T6I/AAAAAAAAeJ4/ulkYUuLXb0I3chxjH5bPeqMTpna_mLEkwCLcBGAs/s1...

Re: Scholastic Production Co. Belfast

Trying to put some order on my collecting recently and have decided that two more blogs are the way to go. The first, devoted to the Scholastic Production Company, went public today and I hope that some of you will find it interesting. Please contact me if you have any Scholastic cards that you migh...

Irish Railways

Picked up this gem on eBay recently for just £ 3.04 incl.p+p. Interestingly it was erroneously described as a 1960s card. While it was posted in 1962, it was a far older card published by the famous Dublin firm of William Lawrence & Son. which operated from 1865-1942. The card was published for the ...

Re: Irish cards by "Jotter" aka Walter Hayward Young

British cards by "Jotter" are fairly common but the Irish ones are like hens teeth - especially those by Arthur Burkart & Co.

Re: Irish cards by "Jotter" aka Walter Hayward Young

My latest "Jotter" by Arthur Burkart & Co., is this one of the Bray Head Hotel, Co.Wicklow. The only one I've come across since I started collecting and not one that I would have searched by name as the hotel is now very much in its declining years. Just over 11 pounds including p+p - a real gem! I'...

Re: Christmas Greetings

It's that time of year again and I'd like to wish everybody a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. This card is an old favourite of mine from my childhood. A product of John Hinde Ltd showing a picturesque winter view of Bray Head, County Wicklow in Southern Ireland - I grew up in its shadow and...

Re: Delcampe - not a good place to buy?

The seller's account has now been suspended but he still refuses to contact either Delcampe or myself. Over 1,300 sales with 97% feedback record - why would he do it? For my part it has made me even more wary of dealing with southern European sellers and I have just passed on two batches of photogra...

Delcampe - not a good place to buy?

In the middle of a dispute on Delcampe and getting absolutely nowhere with their hands-off attitude. I bought an item from a seller in Portugal on the 5th September and paid with PayPal - no item, one email which turned out to be a pack of lies and then nothing. Contacted Delcampe only to be given a...

Re: Scholastic Production Co. Belfast

Some of Scholastic's Real photo cards are quite attractive and I picked up this one on eBay last March for just £3 including p+p. Postally used in 1949. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-o12nHbsmX6U/WakcKBdqWBI/AAAAAAAAFeg/ROv4ML3-RXcswNk572lAjCZXrl3U-sbrACLcBGAs/s1600/Scholastic%2Bpu%2B1949.jpg I'm still ...

Re: Irish cards by "Jotter" aka Walter Hayward Young

I was lucky enough to pick up the Salthill Hotel card a while back and it's a superb card. This one is painted from the hotel looking north towards Dublin. Another gem. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9cXosqKoLSc/WY8OpXWGoFI/AAAAAAAAFbE/Fti6UHR50eUIojkBCFd-2cqbJJOLpZ2ZwCLcBGAs/s1600/Dublin%2BBay%2Bfrom%2...
