Can anyone tell me what, if anything, these little cards are called?

There are two cards, the size of a business card.  They are made by Mullord Brothers.

They may only be worth pennies but ... I can live in hope.

Mourning cards (personal) on eBay seem to be fetching less than a fiver, but a few specialist ones fetch a lot more. Worth a punt possibly.

I didn't think I would get any answers, so thanks, guys.

I didn't think it was worth much, but I have more Scottish items I can sell and can sell them in one go.  Thanks from me and Oxfam.


I'm so pleased you posted this, wolf, because it led me to search for Mullord Brothers and I found a card game I played at my grandmother's house - it was quite old then.  I won't post a link because I don't want to be banned but I had quite forgotten about it.

Barry - I had to get the magnifying glass out to find the name of the company.  I am glad that it rekindled a memory.

Some of the old postcards are in German, with swirly writing.  My knowledge of German is zilch.  They just keep adding words to make the original word longer.


By "more Scottish items", do you mean additional items of indeterminate Scottishness, or items which are more Scottish?

I've had a long day...  😁

nescio - they are of Scottish origin - mainly postcards and other Scottish stuff donated to Oxfam.

I usually try and get a batch of postcards from the same country and we sell them online.  They are usually only worth pennies each, but together they make a few pounds.  This is my current list of items for sale  -;type=search&Nf=&Ns=product.creationDate|1&Nr=AND(,NOT(sku.listPrice:0.000000),product.ox_shopid:F6318)&No=0&Nrpp=30&Ntk=

I have no idea if the above link will work, I have been at this for hours, my bum is numb and my back is sore!😁

That didn't work - here is the link to the online site

Any connection with William McGonnegal's Tay Bridge Disaster poem?

this what you had in mind, wolf?

that's the one, Atheist

Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv’ry Tay!
Alas! I am very sorry to say
That ninety lives have been taken away
On the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember’d for a very long time.

shame you're not near me, wolf, I've been giving away hundreds of books, CDs, DVDs and lots of clothing, shoes and knick knacks too. But it takes me a while to wheel each load up to the high street, I don't think I could manage Scotland.
