Two c1910 Polish language romantic love vintage postcards - each featuring romantic courting images and love poetry, designed to convince your best beau that she is the "one" for you!
The two cards are a set: Each have the same gray background; each have two similar but not identical pictures of two cuddling lovers; and each have different couplets of love poetry. The one on the left translates to English as "Dear girl, nice girl, you enchant my soul!". The card on the right translates "To love and to dream, oh how blissful it is! With you girl, I desire to live". (I am sure it must sound more lyrical in the original Polish, than they do in the English translations!)
Both are standard-sized postcards covered with a shiny gelatin finish, and are unused. Back is marked "Made in Austria" and "No. 5129". NOTE: The waves in the finish that appears to be there in the attached photos are an effect created by the photo scanning process on the gelatin finish – they are NOT really there when viewed in person.
PHOTO NOTE: The photos distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person. Minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION: Standard-sized glossy finish postcards in good condition. Visible lines are craquelure in the gelatin finish - not creases or folds - mostly on the corners and edges. Slight corner creases have been reinforced. Corners and edges have slight damage and color loss in places. The backs of both cards show light age discoloration and light soiling. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
