One of a series of fortune teller postcards by Clare Victor Dwiggins "Dwig" (June 16, 1874 – October 1958)

One of a series of fortune teller postcards by Clare Victor Dwiggins "Dwig" (June 16, 1874 – October 1958)

This “Fortune Teller” postcard was published by R. Kaplan (copyright 1909; Series No. 55). It has a hidden message, that is only revealed when the card is held up to a mirror: "I am yours forever". This card was posted 14 August 1912, so it appears not to have been a Halloween postcard, more of a party-card. The Artist, Clare Victor Dwiggins started his career as a cartoonist in 1897, producing ‘School Days’ in the early 1910s, and moved onto comics in 1918 (with ‘Huckleberry Finn’).

This comic card has a lot going for it. Published by Tuck as part of a numbered series (180), it’s signed by DWIG, Clare Victor Dwiggins, a prolific postcard artist who was also successful in other areas. It fits in a Tuck, signed artist or early comics collection. It also has a small town cancel, Export, Pa., adding another plus. For a new twist, it could be the beginning of an “advice” category.
