Mailed in 1904 to Toulouse, France, this is a real photo postcard from the Reutlinger studio in Paris featuring a Mlle. Sergy. She is dressed in a long flowing gown and a green velvet cape. Color tinted by hand, the dress has very delicate pastel pink and green accents. With its undivided back reserved exclusively for the address, this French postcard was originally printed in 1903 or earlier. Hence, the sender opted to write on the front. Mlle. Sergy is surrounded by French script. A matte finish, this card shows little surface wear. There is a petite crease in the white border at the center bottom. Otherwise, in overall very good used condition. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. NOTE that the card does indeed have the warm creamy background color as seen in the original scan. In the photo, the background colors look cooler than they actually are.
