DESCRIPTION

A gag photo postcard of a man, seated on the edge of a bed, with his arm around a life-sized paperboard cut out of a beautiful, seated woman. He is holding her hand with his right hand, and he holds a glass in his left hand with his arm around her waist. He is wearing a suit and eyeglasses, and his hat is on the pillow to his right. She is wearing a dress and feathered hat, her legs are crossed, and she is holding up a glass near her face. The bed has a metal headboard and a light colored bedspread with fringe. The walls are covered with wallpaper, and two framed prints are hanging on the wall. A carpet covers the floor.
