Ancient British Birthday Greetings

These were found in my grandad’s house after he died. They are supposed to be birthday cards but they are really more like birthday “panels”. I am guessing they date around 1930 or 1940.

Puffy rose. From Albert (my great uncle) to John (my grandad)

This one features gold printing and decoration and a hand-painted illustration. Gorgeous detail.

This one is printed in four colours and embossed with low relief. And it’s very rhymey.
