I love to offer mint condition antique postcards for the collector, but there is a special appeal of the aged and worn for some of us more artistic types, whether one works digitally or with oil paints. Also, if you love to decorate in the Shabby Chic style, this set of 6 antique postcards will be "parfait."
Postal dates include several 1908 and one from 1909. The partially painted line drawing rose is not technically a postcard, but it is postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. The Merry Christmas card was printed in Germany, mailed from the US (?) to France with a French message written verso. Richly embossed with a gold background, which unfortunately looks quite dull in the scan. You'll be impressed when it's in hand. The green vase overflowing with roses is also a deeply embossed card. My favorite is that dastardly elf cutting down the rose baby!
Despite the signs of age and wear, these are all lovely cards. Their beauty has not faded in the intervening century.
Bienvenue! My specialty is antique postcards and ephemera from France and other European countries.
