An Easter Token - 1912

Apologies for posting such an unseasonal item but I recently came across this vintage embossed Easter greetings postcard at a market and it was love at first sight!

The card was printed by Siegmund Hildesheimer & Co (as S.Hildesheimer & Co. Ltd. - London & Manchester) as part of Series No.1023

Siegmund Hildesheimer opened as publisher of books in 1830 and started printing Christmas cards in Manchester in 1876. The business extended to London in 1881 where they produced postcards on numerous subjects until 1920.
