Postcard showing men representing France, Italy, Rusia and Serbia being invited to take their seats at a dinner table where a British man is about to carve a turkey wearing a German cros and sausages. This presumably represents the Allies 'carving up' German and Turkish territory after World War I. The terms of the 1919 Treaty of Versailles did indeed result in the Germans losing large areas of territory and their overseas colonies, as well as the dismantling of the empires of their Turkish and Austro-Hungarian allies.
