I have often wondered how collectors try to preserve/archive these; obviously at some point they will turn to mulch. If anyone has experience on holding off the inevitable decay of these interesting items please consider sharing your conservation practices.

re: bark or wooden postcards

Other than the German Feldpost card above, which is in my own collection, most of the birch bark cards I have handled over the years have been "Summer Camp Projects".

Here are a few from my "Sold Database":

Note how some of the stamps already have toned badly...

re: bark or wooden postcards

A number of auction lots have come with gimmicky cards.

These tourist-targeting woodies are 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 1/8" ... or 9cm x 14cm x 3mm ... does that help you understand why they invented the metric system?

All NYP (Not Yet Posted), so the only toning is from the adhesive remaining where the price tags were peeled-off. Sad, like the man said.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey (who would put these up for auction if he thought anyone might buy them)

re: bark or wooden postcards

I would have loved to have that card from the Pitcairn's!

Phil, weren't the shows run by the Kennedy's who ran the Liberty Stamp Show on Liberty Ave. in Poughkeepsie? Mrs. Kennedy was running the store when I moved away. They used to have a room in their home on Hooker Ave. (I believe that's the right street name) that they used as a make-shift store. I saw Mr. Kennedy at the house until they got the store. I remember that, because our family dentist was across the street. I would go to the stamp shop (before I got my driver license) when my parents would go to Lucky's around the corner.

re: bark or wooden postcards

Nicely themed cards, ikey, but they're just too repro-ey looking.

Now I don't mind a decent repro, but at LEAST do it in authentic fabric, as opposed to some computer-run printer thingie.

This thread intrigues me, and in ALL my many wilderness trips, I can't believe I didn't create some of these for myself. Miniature birchbark canoes, carved miniature pine paddles, carved birds, yes, but anything philatelic? No. And, the PO was right next door to the only bar in town with a pool table, in Geraldton, Ontario...(smacking self in head).

I believe that the technical term you are looking for is "faux retraux".
