info on Tuck postcards please

Post by AFR »

Whilst clearing out my late Aunties house I came across these postcards and I am hoping that somebody will be able to give me some information about them, ie. are they collectable and of interest to collectors or fairly common and lots in circulation. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply.

Your aunt had some very nice cards. The Jennie Harbour examples have a book value of around £8/US$13 BUT usually sell for lower prices on ebay and elsewhere. Harbour is much collected, condition is all important. The others you mention are routine items about £2 per card.

I hope this helps

Thank you for replying so quickly and info was great. I have just come across a few more, perhaps you might know something about these? I far as I can tell the printers name is Em. Maeyens, Uitgever, Antwerpen. The other details on the 4 cards are:

Reeks 5 Nr 25 Vermeer Van Delft The Lace Maker
Reeks 5 Nr 26 A Van Dyck Charles 1
Nr 129 Raeffaello Santi Jeanne D'Aragon
Reeks 17 Nr 97 Pieter de Hooch Interior


1 card with these details - Albrecht Durer Kunstverlag Wolfrum, Wien I, Vert Nr 481
Thank you

Re the 'some more' cards, I've not seen them but from your descriptions they sound like gallery art reproductions so not of value.

If you are working though a lot of items then it can make sense to take them along to a local postcard fair, most dealers will be happy to help. If that's not an option then an eBay or Google search for each usually returns recent sale details.

Hope this helps
