Battlestamps, your Bamra envelope is No. E1 in Ed Deschl's India States Postal Stationery Listing, published in 1994. It was priced then at $US50, although that still looks a bit ambitious. There were three settings of this; yours is from the first, of which there were four sub-settings, differing in the lengths of the ornaments.

In fact, this is a Slovenian postal card, printed bi-lingual, both on the German and Slovenian languages.

Slovenia has been a part of the Austro-Hungarian empire in that time, later part of Kingdom SHS and Yugoslavia, and today it is Slovenia, Republic of (often mistaken with Slovakia - The Slovak Republic or Slovensko, on their native language).

Since you guys like India, here are a few scans to enjoy.

First is a Prisoner of War Camp (21) in India 1943




The next item is a "Soldiers & Seamen's Envleope"




And lastly (this time) is a East India non postage (official?) postal card:





This last one was talking about delayed train mail and signed by the postmaster of Vizagapatam in 1896.

Enjoy.

Nice Hungary card Cursus. Thanks for sharing.

I do not have a lot of Spain, but here are two of my oldest postal cards (both 1874). Enjoy.

December, 3rd, 1973. Postcard, showing Barcelona Flower's Rambla (card) and cathedral (stamp). Circulated in Barcelona.





The same card (un-circulated), overprinted on the Exposition of the Centennary of the postcard of the Cercle Filatèlic I Numismàtic de Barcelona (Barcelona Philathelic & Numismatic Club). A very limited issue.







The exhibition had a pm showing a fictious postcard with the Sagrada Familia Basilica.

Perkins, Bacon printed postcards (and envelopes) for Kishangarh State in 1911, to accompany the beautifully printed set of stamps they did for Kishangarh at the same time.

Kishangarh was a very small State, with very modest requirements for postal stationery, and Perkins, Bacon probably wanted a large order to justify the setting up. Whatever the story, the postcards



were still available and being used over 30 years later.

Several of the Indian States entered into a Postal Convention with British India in the 1880s, under which they agreed to close their State and use British Indian stamps, and postal stationery, overprinted for the particular State. They are quite complex, and can be highly specialised - if anyone has the patience to do so ...

This one is from Chamba State, in the Himalayas, to the southeast of Jammu & Kashmir:



It travelled around the backwoods of Chamba, collecting a few nice village cancellations. The large Sun imprint was regularly used on Chamba postal stationery.

All Gwalior State postal stationery featured the State emblem, of the Sun between two cobras:



This Jind State postal stationery envelope




was used illegally on mail to the US. Under the Postal Convention, Jind State overprinted cards and envelopes were only supposed to be used within India.

Nabha State was another Convention State:



As was Patiala State:

And here is a sort of half-way house between a straight formular card and a proper postal stationery card, from Jaipur State:



Both the cards and the ¼ Anna stamp were printed, separately, by Perkins, Bacon. However, the cards were not supposed to be sold without the ¼ Anna stamps already affixed. (I've never seen a plain card, without the stamp.)

And a footnote for the railway buffs: the magenta lozenge-shaped handstamp at bottom left is thought by the specialists to be a TOO LATE stamp. It's not uncommon at this period.

tonymacg: Now I will have to look for the magenta lozenge shaped hand stamp on my India material. Is it specific to Jaipur material, or common across the India spectrum?

The lozenge-shaped mark (it reads BAD RAWANGI DAK) was specific to Jaipur, unfortunately, and earlier Jaipur at that. (I just checked through around a hundred earlier Jaipur covers and cards, and couldn't find another example. I thought I had one, but ...)

The British Indian Post Office simply used a boxed TOO LATE stamp. You might be able to make it out on this Jammu & Kashmir (SG 41) cover, under the various other handstamps:
