Item details

An amazing WWII Bertiglia postcard! Aurelio Bertiglia was an Italian artist who drew children in adult situations. By WWII he sympathized with Italy so this image is of England ( the lion) being muzzled and his tail chopped off by the Axis powers ( Germany, Japan and Italy). Pretty intense stuff!
The postcard is in perfect condition. It was kept in a Scrapbook since the 1940s.
Thanks for looking! International customers, please read the next paragraph. Sincerely, KinsaleGirl
