This postcard featuring the artwork of British artist Ethel Parkinson (1868-1957) is one in a series. I'd be happy to help you collect the others!
At first glance, one sees a lovely lady in white, in an empire dress with a flowing drape, against a warm taupe and gray backdrop. Upon closer examination, you'll see that she is holding bouquets in both hands and if the closeup details of holly on the outside frame are a clue, then it's Christmas time! While this color combo isn't usually what we consider a holiday color scheme, Parkinson nonetheless has a way of making us feel warm during the winter cold. Very faintly in the center of the card there is a "Heureuse Annee" (Happy New Year) greeting. This card is generously detailed with metallic gold overlay as the photos show.
The sender scribbled their initials at the bottom. Verso, we see that this card was mailed to a woman in Switzerland on Christmas eve, 1907. Also, among the sender's script, the printer's information can be found. This was published by Max Munk of Vienna, Austria. It's marked No. 310.
Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Slightest wear around the edges. Some errant specks and spots which appear to be inherent to the printing or possibly ink smudge.
