did you receive?

Hi,

Thank you for your images and for your patience.

Technically, this is an Edwardian era decorative color lithograph print and not a postcard. Fred Loundsbury was a publisher who printed decorative wall art as well as postcards. If it were a 1907 postcard, there would be a printed square for where to place the postage stamp and a designated seperate space for the addressee and the note from the sender.

Your print entitled Feeding the Prisoner could sell for $5 - $25 on today's auction market.

Thanks thats more info than I had. I have researched the artist but can't find them. would that make a difference? I am not interested in selling just want to know for sure. I know its a print and not original. I just thought i could find something out about the artist too.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the date on it says 1907. it that the date Loundsbury printed it? It is in a old frame too.

Hi,

The artist of the image was John H. Cocks (1849 - 1938) who was an illustrator and sculptor who was born in New Jersey and resided primarily in Brooklyn, NYC, NY. His illustrations were frequently printed in Harper's Weekly magazine.

The artist of the published print image does not impact the value of this color lithograph print.

Yes, 1907 is when this was published.
