Italian E. Colombo was a prolific turn-of-the-century artist and illustrator who had a versatile but distinctive style, whether he was drawing children, a Japanese-themed series or fashion designs. But this is a rare card in one of Colombo's higher end fashion series. From the intricate design to the quality of the card stock (thicker) with the added gold overprint, this card stands out. Surely it's no coincidence that the lady's dress looks like butterfly wings. Even her hat sports two curling antennae! I have included several scans and photos taken at a variety of angles in different light to show this card accurately in all its glory -- and blemishes too. The bottom right corner tip is creased and there are foxing spots visible on the beige background. This card was printed in Milano, Italy; mailed from France in 1919 to Naples. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
