Handmade Greeting Card Victorian Women Shoppping and Smoking Pipes


Give someone a card they won't throw away!

This image is from the mid-1800s and is sewn onto a 5 x 7 Strathmore heavy watercolor greeting card with metallic thread. envelope. The antique engraved print is from a women's magazine and someone maybe 100 or 150 years ago drew pipes in many of the people's mouths. I enhanced that and painted in smoke. Cracks me up every time I see it. It would be fabulous framed in a 8x10 mat with a 5x7 opening, and put into a standard 8 x 10 frame if you don't want to use it as a card! I have already made these special order for pipe-smoking women!

This is waiting for just the right person. Might be the last one I have.

Price includes shipping as a package with tracking since I can't chance it being bent in a regular envelope.
