Information - Raphael Tuck and Sons LTD:
In 1883, Queen Victoria granted the firm the Royal Warrant of Appointment. Tuck cards thereafter bore the message, “Art Publishers to Her Majesty the Queen”. Future sovereigns continued the warrant of appointment. In the early 1900’s Tuck issued sets covering topics such as London and other Thames river views, military and war drawings of Harry Payne and others and well known paintings by Turner. Later Tuck issued more sets. During 1901, the first “Rough Seas”, “Heraldic” and “Country” sets first appeared. In 1902 Tuck again increased their postcard sales list issuing three superb sets of the “Kings and Queens of England”. 1902 also saw the printing of the first USA Private Mailing Card postcards. 1903 had many memorable issues introduced including the “Oilettes” and the “Proof” sets. By the end of 1903 Tuck had in production over 10,000 different cards. 1904 was yet another banner year for Tuck. Such sets as the “Olde Print” Series, the “Connoisseur” Series and the “Silverette” Series came into production.
