Gifts from My Beloved Aunt Judy

My Beloved Aunt Judy and cousin Lisa discovered TWO FULL BASKETS of old cabinets cards in one of the antique stores. My Lovely Mother, Aunt Judy and I cleaned them out -- prices were only between $1 and $4!!! Aunt Judy bought these two for me. There's nothing written on this card, but I've named her Lottie after one of my favorite rubber stamp images.
The back of this has several things written in German, which we are still trying to decipher. Among them, though, is written: "Grandma and Grandpa Volski, their wedding portrait." Exquisite cabinet card!

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DOWNLOAD THESE SCANS!!! These are just too lovely to keep to myself.
