Item details

I bought these beautiful postcards in Korea. The color photographs by J-M Leenders show a variety of scenes from Korea entitled Heritage. Some of the scenes include Confucian rites for royal ancestors, images of the royal palace, articles from daily life, a royal palanquin, ceremonial dress, and musical instruments.

The images of Buddhist temples include my favorite - Chongmyo Shrine - a temple complex of breathtaking beauty which I visited in Korea while living in Japan in the early 90s. I think these are the most beautiful postcards I have ever seen. Even the paper has a luscious feel.

The postcards measure approx. 6 1/4” x 4 1/4” (16x11cm) and come in a cover. They would look wonderful framed, used in a craft project or mailed to people. They are in perfect condition.

These are so beautiful I actually bought 2 complete identical sets of these postcards, 16 in each set. If you would like both sets (click on "quantity" above) or more than one other listing of postcards, contact me for special prices.

Please read my shipping and shop policies before purchasing.

The shipping fee is only an estimate - depends on destination. ***Please give me your US ZIP CODE or COUNTRY before purchasing, so I can weigh the unsealed package to determine a more accurate estimated fee.

Zip or postal code

I usually go to a US post office once a week (I am a bit disabled) or twice a week if I have a lot of orders. I will inform you the day I ship. I always ship through the USPS usually first class with a tracking number in the US, sometimes Priority Mail. Priority Mail includes a tracking number and $50 insurance, for US mail, but it's more expensive.

I try to estimate USPS fees but there are many variables (weight, size, distance, packing materials, etc.), and shipping costs have increased. If I overestimate the fee by more than $3, I will issue a partial refund. If I underestimate the fee, I will send you an invoice for the additional cost which I expect you to pay upon receipt. ***If you want to know a more accurate shipping estimate, send me your US zip code. I will weigh the prepared package first BEFORE you purchase the item and let you know.

If you want to buy several items, contact me first BEFORE purchasing for a combined shipping fee.

***INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING NOTICE*** US postal rates continue to increase especially for international mail. International Priority Mail is more expensive but it now includes insurance for the value of the purchase up to $200, and also tracking. First Class Mail is cheaper but without tracking or insurance. I CANNOT be responsible for late or lost shipments, or damaged goods unless you purchase insurance for First Class Mail! Just let me know which method you prefer, and I will provide an estimate.

IMPORTANT: Before I can estimate the correct international first class mail shipping fee, I must know the destination country (for Canada also postal code) and weigh the prepared package. I will then notify you of the estimated fee. If you decide to purchase, then I will add your location and shipping fee to the listing.

5 Star Positive Reviews on items received is greatly appreciated! This is important to me and other buyers who like to know what to expect. To leave a review, go to "your account" upper right, scroll down to "purchases and reviews", find the order, click on the fifth star, and leave a comment or two.

Your order will be carefully packaged. I try to use recycled materials whenever possible when shipping orders.


All payments now go through Etsy Payments, This system allows you to use multiple payment methods, including credit cards, PayPal, Apple Pay, and Etsy gift cards. It’s also more flexible, stable, and secure than ever.

I will do a "reserve" on an item for up to 3 days, then payment is due.

I do lay-away in 2 installments with half the cost and the shipping fee paid first. The second payment must be within a month. Please be sure you want the item because there will be no refunds on lay-away deposit payments.

In some cases prices may be negotiable so contact me before you purchase.

Additional return information
As most of the items in this shop are vintage, I try to describe the condition thoroughly, with several photos, but you must remember that vintage items are usually not perfect. I feel I provide sufficient information and photos to help you make a final decision. Therefore there are no refunds unless you are very sure it has been misrepresented. In that case, a refund will be made minus the shipping fee, and a $5 restocking fee on items of $20+. You must return the item in the same condition as it was sent to you within 7 business days of receiving it. There will be no refunds on sale items. I only do exchanges in very special circumstances.

I try to wrap all items carefully but If an item is damaged, or lost, in the shipping to you, I cannot be responsible unless you have paid for insurance.

Additional policies

As most of the items in this shop are vintage, I cannot do custom orders, wholesale pricing or consignment.
