Kitsch Greek Greetings Postcard

A kitsch Greek Greetings card, featuring a rather unusual bird (cross between a swallow and a dove!?) carrying a message of good wishes across the sea, surrounded by a border of red and pink flowers. Surprisingly, the printer appears to have spelt one of the words incorrectly, an error which has been altered by the sender.

Such as the mottled markings and more curved neck of the Florentine. The white bars on the wing and breast of the Starling, and the unique spot on the head, and odd feathered feet belonging to the Spot Fairy. Date: circa 1880s
