Inspired by rare ephemera, these splendid certificates are printed on parchment paper using an old-fashioned plate stamping process over metallic Antique-Gold ink.
The "security" background is printed in the same golden ink, with a watermark of 365 - because it is a promise note drawn on the Bank of Felicity.
These charming reproduction certificates are reproduced from the originals circulated in 1882!
Each is made with the original in mind, replicating the rich vintage texture you'd expect of something so special created so long ago!
Much like a cheque, you'll just fill in the date, sign it, then bestow happiness and good fortune on friends, family, coworkers or even perfect strangers. Not only will the recipient be pleased, but, you'll surely celebrate your own happiness as you present each certificate.
The certificates measure 8-1/4 by 3-1/2 inches.
On the left it reads, framing the Queen of Cupid Fairies on a calligraphic cartouche:
SECURED BY THE BONDS OF FRIENDSHIP
BANK OF FELICITY. CAPITAL UNLIMITED
