This still life postcard of grapes and pomegranates has an undivided back, which dates its printing to 1903 or earlier. The slightest hint of wear at the corner tips, but overall, especially for its age, this card is in mint unused condition. In a canvas of gray, the light green grapes, deep blue grapes and the red violet seeds of the pomegranate pop out. This card is signed by the artist, but unfortunately, I'm not sure what the name is. Research under J. Torentin did not get any results, but I could be misreading the signature. No printer's marks, but since Postkarte is first and in bold verso, I believe this is a German printed card. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
*The fruit bowl still life may look familiar. Check out my listing here for another postcard by this same mystery author that has been turned into a 3-D centerpiece with a honeycomb interior. http://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-7844/Antique-3-D-Fruit-Still-Life
