I've grouped this trio of antique postcards together because each woman is wearing a pink and green dress. These are all real photo postcards that have been colorized by hand. Two are franked 1906 and one is stamped 1910. Although some signs of age are visible, the heart of the postcard shows very little surface wear and is in outstanding condition. The background in the two borderless cards looks darker in the direct scans than it actually is. The background is a softer, muted gray or gray/brown. The white border postcard is creased at the top left. But any signs of age seem irrelevant as the eye is captured by the fashion: the rich details in the design, the lace, the edging. I love the lace sleevelet the woman with the basket is wearing. Notice the hand detailing in the other two cards, from metallic gold accents to white dots. Each card is about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.

Re: Insurance -- I don't usually require insurance on cards unless the order is over $100 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. Merci!
