Vintage 1949 METAMORPHIC Easter Card: 2 DUCKS in Wooden Shoe Boat w/Lookout

Description

Vintage 1949 METAMORPHIC Easter Card: 2 DUCKS in Wooden Shoe Boat w/Lookout

7 inches tall, clever Easter card with partial fold-over that opens. Closed, card shows duck in wooden shoe/clog boat holding an Easter basket full of colorful eggs. Behind him is a large tulip; when card is opened, we now see the duck in the boat looking up at the duck in the look-out (tulip) who has a spy glass/telescope to his eye.

Card is used and is signed  at bottom front. It does come from a scrapbook and back has  scrapbook paper/glue residues, along with some top paper layer lifting. This card was difficult to remove from the scrapbook, but the remaining scrapbook paper could probably be removed if card were soaked (I'm not a fan of soaking, so I'll leave that decision to the next owner).

PHOTOS: Please be sure to look closely at my photos as they are an integral part of the description. My photos are often taken in bright natural light or sometimes with a flash, both of which tend to bleach out colors. Normally colors are darker than photos show and light areas are glare from too bright light or flash.

VIEWING NOTE: If you are using a mobile device, please expand all drop-downs to see more information. You may not be able to access all of my photos or description so I recommend, if possible, that you look at items using the classic view, not the mobile view on your phone's app, or that you view listings on a computer.  I do my listings on a laptop, so typically offer several photos and a complete description that are worth taking the time to view.

MY STORE: Please visit my store, DeVITO'S BOOKS-TV CLOSEOUT JEWELRY for all sorts of items. I stock many nostalgia items, such as vintage children's books, magazines for kids and teenagers, including Teen, Ingenue, 16, Flip, Jack and Jill, Child Life, Wee Wisdom, My Weekly Reader, Junior Scholastic, Dick and Jane and other school texts, series' books, bargain book lots, and unused retro greeting cards and valentines that are so fun to collect, inexpensive to send, and with much better graphics than what are available today. These make great items to give to Baby Boomers or to anyone who collects retro items from the first half of the 20th century. My inventory changes and is added to weekly, so be sure to have a look often at recently listed items. Have fun on unearthing some wonderful treasures and thanks for taking a look at my listings.

COMBO SHIPPING: I do combo ship, so if you are purchasing multiple items from me, please wait to pay until after I have gathered your items, weighed them and sent a revised invoice. I do not require that my buyers pay immediately, so take your time to browse in my store and/or let me know if you will be offerding on sales that have not yet ended so that I can hold off invoicing until you have finished shopping. Each item added to the package will incur a minimal handling fee to help with the cost of doing business with and PayPal.

SHIPPING SCHEDULE: I typically ship twice a week (usually Wednesdays and Saturdays), more during holiday seasons. Please ignore the 10-day shipping timeframe that is shown in my listings. made me choose one and sometimes I am called away on a business trip, so occasionally it may take longer than 3 or 4 business days which is usually the timeframe within which I ship. It all depends on what day your payment posts. Sometimes I ship the same day payment is received, sometimes the next day, but generally no longer than 5 business days. If I am away on a business trip, I always try to alert buyers that there will be a shipping delay. I am a buyer who never likes to wait for my own packages to arrive, so although I simply cannot ship every day, I do my utmost to get your purchases to you promptly. Please don't let the 10-day projected turnaround deter you from doing business with me. If you pay promptly and let me know that you need your purchase pronto, I shall do my best to get it to you in time.****

SHIPPING METHODS:

CARDS: I typically ship cards by First Class Letter rate to save you postage. However, it is not possible to do Delivery Confirmation on Letter rate, so if that is a concern to you, please email me before paying to ask for DC and I will switch shipping method to First Class Package rate which includes Delivery Confirmation. Please note that 's default setting for First Class shipping is the Package rate, but what you are quoted in my listing is the lower Letter rate (if package weighs 3 ounces or less) with a USPS surcharge for cardboard protection added to envelope.  

BOOKS: I ship books Media Mail to the US; all other destinations I ship First Class International if book weighs less than 4 pounds, and Priority International if it is over 4 pounds.  It is very, very expensive to ship Priority International, even with Flat Rate, so please ask about shipping before you buy.  For US buyers, Media Mail is slow, so if you need or want your book quickly, please ask for Priority and I shall re-invoice you.

MAGAZINES: I ship most magazines by First Class Parcel rate. This includes Delivery Confirmation. Typically, only one or two lightweight magazines will meet the 13-ounce or under maximum for First Class. Beyond that weight, new magazines will have to ship Priority, old magazines, Media.

EVERYTHING ELSE: If item is under 13 ounces or less, shipping is by First Class Parcel rate. Over 13 ounces, item will ship by Priority: Flat Rate, or by weight (whichever is less expensive), or by Regional rate where available. I do not use Parcel Post rate because it is nearly the same rate as Priority and ships much slower.

 



PaymentTimely payment is expected. If there will be a delay, please email to let me know.Terms of SaleReturns are expensive and it is disappointing for the buyer to pay shipping both ways and end up with nothing, so please ask if you are unsure about anything in my listing.
