Description 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ Just as today there are some people who love over-the-top, elaborately festooned decor and possessions, so too did many Victorians, especially those who had risen from the working class to become successful 'in trade' (today we call them nouveaux riche). This gilded, elaborate penny postcard appealed to those who wanted to proclaim their wealth through visuals. The juxtaposition of simple daisies with gilding, jewels and lace is typical of this need for notice. Digitally painted daisies from an original photograph are overlaid with golden designs on a lace field encrusted with jewels.
