I bought this postcard when I first started collecting because I love Guinea Pigs. It is the only card I have that has guinea pigs on it. They are sitting around a bowl of lettuce and eating it. The card has an undivided back and was postmarked in 1906.
Like I said, I love guinea pigs and I have one myself. Her name is Clementine. Guinea pigs are from south America, and are related to capybaras, which look like giant guinea pigs. Cuy is a delicacy in south America that is a wild guinea pig, so they are significantly larger than one you can buy in a pet store. When they are born, they have fur and are able to see.
It wasn’t until yesterday while looking at this card that I noticed it said “Printed in Bavaria” on the lower right corner and the lower left looks like it has a name. The first name is definitely Ernest, but the last name I’m not sure about. It looks like it says Misteriongen, but there are no Google results for that. I tried several variations of searching for Ernest postcard artist. Looks like it will remain a mystery!
