In 1906, Lucy sent a series of postcards to her friend Alexandrine over a period of several months. More than a hundred years later, these three out of the series have survived together. Even without the other cards, this trio tells a delightful story of a little girl whose reading is interrupted by a pigeon delivering a letter. The first card, marked II at the bottom, is dated January 14. Cards IV and V were mailed in March. No. II, the girl reading alone, has a superficial crease at the bottom right corner. No. IV, the bird sitting on her chair, has a light superficial crease at bottom right by the chair's back leg. Virtually no surface wear. When held at an angle, you can still catch the glimmering metallic gold highlights added on the chair in No. IV. Matte finish, this trio of cards would make a heart-warming triptych matted and framed.
