From the baby cheeks to the golden stars, this German postcard is charming, despite the coffee stains and natural signs of age expected on a piece of paper that is 114 years old. The card is German: Gruss means "greetings." But the French message send happy namesake day wishes from Therese, Helen and Aunt Jeanne. Note the hand-written date of 1900. Verso, the franking looks to be March 19,1900. The card was mailed to Joseph Schneckler "at the house of his mother Rentiere." Mailed to an address in the Alsace region, this German-French postcard echoes the history of the region as the area went back and forth between the rule of the two nations. The adorably illustrated child's face is set against a red-violet background that was hard to capture. But I've included scans and photos to help you see what a beautiful shade of red it is. With the golden stars and the deep red tones, this card has a definite Christmas feel to it. Light album impressions; no creases. For its age, in fine antique condition. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
