Unique Watercolor of USA Sailor Handmade 1918 World War I French Thank You PostcardUnique Watercolor of USA Sailor Handmade 1918 World War I French Thank You PostcardUnique Watercolor of USA Sailor Handmade 1918 World War I French Thank You Postcard

In the golden age of postcards, a person could buy cards that were blank on the front, of a watercolor paper texture and style, right down to the deckled edges. This allowed the artist to create their own unique card! A. LeFevre made this card in homage to America's help during World War 1. I can't read all of the script on the back, but he is writing about the armistice and he says "Viva la France and America, to the soldiers, marines, heroes...... to finish." On the front and the back, he dated the card: November 11, 1918.The card corners have yellowed where it has been tucked in an album page. Any signs of age or wear seem almost like an insult to point out:) It is a historical gem, a touching tribute by a French artist. The card measures 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
