This French postcard is signed by the artist: Tarantino, G. (Giuseppe -- 1916-1999). In French "anniversaire" means birthday. This happy birthday card features a boy and girl with flower bouquets strolling hand in hand under a floral arch. The majority of the illustration has been overlayed with a felt-like material. The card is written verso but no date or postal franking. However, the felt design and the size (3.5 by 5.5 inches) makes me think this is a retro kitschy card circa 1950s or early '60s before cards went to the modern 4x6 inch size. There is a light crease at the top left corner and a crease bottom center that goes up this side of the A in Anniversaire for about an inch. Neither crease are detrimental to the image. At first glance, the card appears to be in mint condition.
