The face of the postcard bears a medallion with a decorative frame.

The frame encircles a printed verse from St. Paul’s Epistle to the Colossians”

“If ye then be risen with Christ,

Seek those things which are above”.

Silver bells and lily-of-the-valley blossoms surround the frame.

Below the drawing, silver letters proclaim, “A peaceful Easter”.

The postcard was published by the International Art Publishing Company of New York and Berlin.

The postcard was printed in Germany.

On the reverse, Elizabeth inscribes only her name.

One hopes that Mae was thrilled by the greeting and that she and Elizabeth enjoyed a wonderful Easter.
