Vintage Postcard of a Pilgrim Girl with Victorian Style

Pilgrim Girl with Victorian Style Postcard

This vintage Thanksgiving postcard shows a Pilgrim girl holding a golden cornucopia full of fruits and flowers to convey the abundance of food that is generally shared on Thanksgiving Day.

Normally the Pilgrim women are portrayed in solemn colors, but this young girl is arrayed in Victorian fashion with gold trim on her sleeves and embroidered design on dress and apron. It’s a beautiful card if not quite historically accurate.
