This French postcard is a part of a series but this single scene is the only one I currently have. Fortunately, it stands alone and would make a very special piece of wall art for the boudoir. The text at the bottom is French for "girlfriend." Note, it's not maîtresse or mistress. I believe in the context of the full series, it's showing the many roles of a wife (friend, lover, mother, etc.)
This is a black and white photo that has been colorized by hand. Notice the hint of blush in both their cheeks. I like the pink wallpaper design in the background. The woman is a beauty with her curly dark hair, string of pearls and lacy gown. The fella isn't too bad either:)
Mailed in 1907, this glossy finish card does show some wear. There is a crease that curves by the bed post. Looking at the card straight on, it looks in fine condition, but held at angle, the crease shows.
Size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
PLEASE Note: I believe in describing my cards in a very nit-picky fashion , but direct scans of postcards are brutal. In the square close-up in the first picture slot, the white speck near the woman's nose -- I had to use my jeweler's loupe to verify it was really there and not a piece of dust from my scanner. May I suggest that you push your chair back from the computer screen about 2-3 feet. Then you'll have a more accurate idea of what you'll see when you have the postcard in hand.
