I've paired these two cards up because both feature Lina Cavalieri. The card featuring just her is circa 1903 or earlier. It is a matte black and white photo with minimum signs of wear. The other card is the typical glossy postcard and the scan doesn't do it justice. The Art Nouveau design surrounding the trio of famous stars is a lime green with pink highlights color tinted on the flowers and Madame Robinne's veil/gown. Both cards are about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. No creases. Both cards are in very good vintage condition, exceptionally so considering the age!
