It was common during the Golden Age of Postcards for studio portraits to be printed in postcard format for easy sharing and mailing. These are not mass-produced postcards, but personal family photos from more than a century ago. The portrait of the girl on the llama (?) has been artistically inset against a river scene sketch. It is as interesting on the back. Note the 1906 franking and the beautiful calligraphy, addressed to a gentlemen in the 5th regiment stationed at Versailles! The top right corner is creased; foxing on the back. I love the spotted toy horse with the wild mane that the toddler is holding the reins to in the second photo.This card is not dated, but again, very Belle Epoque. No creases. These antique French postcards are what I call "instant family" and are perfect for not only collecting but decorating one's home interior. Perfect accents on the fireplace, especially for an old fashioned Christmas feel. Both cards measure about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
