Description
   Blank colorful telegraph form for joyous occasions to be completed by the sender from mandate Palestine prior to the establishment of the state of Israel. The form is in light yellow and is comprised of a border of green clusters of grapes and leaves with connencting brown lines (vines). At the top on each side are deves. At the top is a brown banner with the Hebrew words in red telegram brocha. In the center are the words, also in red, post and telegram (E. I.). Below are lines and spaces with the captions, sending office, receiving office, and date. This card was not a standard telegraph from, as indicated by its heading. Even more common standard forms are unlikely to survive, being ephemera, much less unused blank special purpose forms.
