Vintage Monday: Gobble-gobble

In honor of the upcoming Turkey Day, I decided to share this vintage postcard of mine. These types of cards are among my favorites. They were printed on soft, textured cotton paper. The image is based on a black and white photograph which was then hand-colored. Not every card individually, of course, but the template. It's not my area of expertise but I suspect they used a different printing plate for every color--I count at least eight different colors. The final result is an image that's somewhere between a photograph and a watercolor painting. I like it.
