Ellen Clapsaddle brings us another charming gourd-themed scene! Have you ever pondered the origin of the term "jack-o-lantern"? While surrounded by folklore and legends, the most plausible explanation traces back to people themselves. In 17th-century Britain, it was customary to refer to an unidentified man as "Jack." For example, a night watchman was often called "Jack-of-the-Lantern," later "jack-o’-lantern." Over time, this moniker extended to the lanterns made from carved root vegetables, giving us the name we know today!

Ellen Clapsaddle (1865-1934) was an American artist who was celebrated for her immense impact on vintage postcard illustration. With a staggering portfolio of over 3,000 designs in the souvenir postcard field, she played a pivotal role in the Golden Age of Postcards (1890s through World War I), during which hundreds of millions of postcards were printed, imported, sold, and mailed. Clapsaddle's artistry is beautifully preserved in these cherished nostalgic pieces, often featuring children, floral arrangements, and holiday themes. Her profound influence extended to postage stamps through the United States Postal Service, solidifying her status as a true pioneer in postcard illustration.
