This antique French postcard is an advertisement for an engraving company in Paris at the turn of the century. The embossed angels in a gold overprint speak well for the quality of craftmanship one could expect from L. Debierne. According to the itemized list verso, Debierne Graveur's company could create plaques and signs in steel or copper and they could make engravings for typography, for postage stamps or money. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any historical information about this company. Today, at 326 rue Saint Martin in Paris, there is a pizza shop. But surely in its day, Debierne's must have been the go-to place for quality engraving. The card has a deckled edge and for its age is in overall mint condition. It is typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
