This unusual 5-3/8" x 3-3/8" souvenir postcard depicts "East Liverpool, Ohio. North Side" but is actually the same image, cropped a bit, used on another postcard I am offering this week, which is captioned KTK Knowles, Taylor & Knowles [makers of Lotus Ware].

On the back, a printed notice reads "Printed by The Bagley Co., East Liverpool, Ohio." and "Made in Germany" along with the stock number 31344.

This card was postmarked on June 23, 1909 from East Liverpool and bears a green one-cent stamp. But there is no address or message, so these were evidently pencil notes that a previous owner has erased.

Condition is fair to good. The corners have been mildly bumped. Some age discoloration and spotting on both front and back.

Note that this scanned image is not as crisp as the actual postcard. A great find for the collector or researcher of American art pottery and American china/dinnerware.
