This French postcard is unused and undated, but everything about the card, from the couples' hair and fashions to the hand-painted overlay, is tres Art Deco, circa 1920s-'30s. I read an online blog where one collector expressed the idea that there was a definite Japanese influence on this style of card. I had never thought of that, but I think I agree. The background is bold -- with the added richness of the metallic gold -- but still one feels that Asian influence with the long floral branches. Some wear and foxing spots; a speck on the gentleman's suit sleeve, but overall, in very good vintage condition. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
IF you love the Art Deco postcards, let me know. I have scores of them in the monochromes and would be happy to get some 'bon marche' groupings listed for you.
Re: Insurance -- I don't usually require insurance on cards unless the order is over $50 and/or it is a rare card that would be near impossible to replace. I pack cards in a plastic sleeve between 2 pieces of cardboard inside a 5x7 greeting card. So, with that information, it is your choice if you'd like insurance and you can accept or decline during checkout.
