This Italian postcard is unused and dates to the Art Deco period from the 1920s and '30s. The illustration is unsigned but the style reminds me of Aldolfo Busi. It is a charming scene from the 17th century of a Marquis kissing the hand of a lady sitting in a sedan chair. Every computer monitor is calibrated differently for color, so let me describe what you should be seeing: dark lavender and black in the trees with some light green. The marquis' jacket also has a light wash of green-yellow and hand-detailed metallic gold accents. The burst of water from the fountain in the background is also hand detailed with gold! The carriage, which is the scene stealer, is a rich orange-red. The publisher, Fotocelere, produced thousands of Art Deco real photo monochrome postcards, but these full color illustrations with hand-detailing are harder to find, the cream of the crop from their production line. The card stock has a watercolor paper "rippled" texture with lightly deckled edges. Virtually no surface wear, in overall fine condition for its age. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
