Last Chance: WITH A minimum $20 purchase, get this card for only $10! Details on my home page.
This listing is for ONE of two ladies in blue in the Meissner & Buch's "Künstler Postkarten/Artist Postcard" series No. 1523 that I have listed. Printed in Germany, this series is entitled "Schönheiten aus alter zeit" -- Beauties of Olden Times.
I've a total of four and I've included scans of the two ladies in blue side by side as well as a group scan of all four in case you are contemplating how they would look together matted and framed:)
The dress of this lady is a very light pastel blue (love that contrasting gold applique) and her hat is a dark blue with a gargantuan buckled bow!
There are noticeable specks around the inside shadow of her hat. Still, for its age, (circa 1910) I feel confident in describing this card as in overall fine antique condition. It is made of heavy duty card stock; size about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. The matte finish has almost no surface wear. Meissner & Buch had a reputation of producing some of the finest lithograph postcards before World War I. More than 100 years later and the lasting richness of the colors back up that reputation!
UPDATE: Please note that the other lady in blue has already sold.
