Artist signed Postcards: ARTHUR BUTCHER

Arthur Butcher was an English illustrator, born in 1877 in Wood Green, London.  His artwork was reproduced as postcards. 

The images in this post are flat postcards from the World War I era with English and French captions.  Butcher was adept at adding glamour to illustrations of women affected by the war.

We open with a woman in military attire with the caption Fall in and follow me!

Here a woman at home thinks about her beau at the front.

This is a colorful image of a sultry woman representing Serbia with the caption Freedom for ever!

This more demure image of Somebody's Darling has a stamp on the back that shows it was sold from a shop in Lisbon.

The two risque images in silhouette below are in a different style, but clearly signed with Arthur Butcher's signature: 

The postcards in this post were all published by Inter-Art Company of London.
