My inner 2-year-old loves tactile postcards like this. The lady's pale green empire dress is covered in minute glass beads. There are also a few on her hat and a sprinkling on her red ribbon. Of course, if you are going to run your fingers across this card, you'll want to do so gingerly. After all, this card is about 114 years old and we can start coming unglued by that age:) Seriously, some beads will likely come off during transit just as they did making the Atlantic crossing from France, but I will pack this with as much care as possible -- I am much more OCD about packaging than French folks -- and I'll include the loose beads I have saved. There are a few bead impressions nicked into the card but I'm being very nit picky in my description. In hand, with the naked eye, this card looks almost in mint antique condition. It is unused and based on the Carte Postale lineup verso, I'd say it was printed in France. This would be such a lovely piece of ephemera to display in a shadow box. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
