The French text on the front of this antique postcard says "My sweet song is that of love." Ahhh!
This is a collage, mixing the real photo of the Edwardian woman with faux elements and illustrations. It's a little kitschy but those two heart outlines on the phonograph/gramophone are a romantic touch.
This card has been colorized by hand with lots of pink, blue and green. There is a light crease (doesn't come through all the way to back) that is more feelable than seeable at the far left edge of the "phonograph" where the flowers are clumped together. And surface wear typical of glossy finish cards. But overall, especially considering its age (circa 1904-1918) I'd still classify this card as in fine antique condition.
