This little card is a postcard greeting, published by the J. Raymond Howe Company of Chicago, IL. In my research I discovered this company was active between 1904-1914 or so, and is considered one of the early arts & crafts card publishers. Arts & crafts publishers used images influenced by the arts & crafts movement, employing simplicity of imagery and payed homage to craftsmanship, authenticity and romantic or folk ornamentations. This movement flourished between 1880-1910, and continued to influence art and artists until the 1930s.
J. Raymond Howe Company used the publisher initials of JHR and also Howe with a stylized H. This particular postcard was not mailed and the text in the stamp box is still visible. It reads “United States & Canada one cent, Foreign two cents.”
