Vintage postcard auctions online

The generation that grew up in the era of gadgets does not give postcards. They might not know the experience of choosing a postcard to present, buying it and feeling like you want to keep it, as the unique and beautiful piece could be a part of their own collection.

In general, collecting postcards is an inexpensive and very exciting hobby for adults and children. The 19th and especially the 20th century was a golden age for postcard publishers. The following fact speaks of the importance and significance of the postcard invention - in 1878, the World Postal Congress was held in Paris, where its standard was established.

And the first postcards appeared in Austria in 1869. In 1871, they began to be mass - printed in England, Switzerland, Belgium, and Denmark.

The postcard, which appeared in the 19th century as one of the means of postal correspondence, was in great demand until the end of the 20th century. Until new means of communication were invented.

The modern craze for old postcards has grown from a simple love for the vintage aesthetics into a serious trend.
