The snow-topped greeting in the background is Heureux Noel on this antique French postcard. The dark brown-black and white faux background is stark but makes the Edwardian girl and her doll stand out all the more. The bisque doll is about half as tall as the girl!

Interestingly, the color-tinting looks detailed (all those dots!) and yet rather sloppy, too. Shabby chic, indeed.

This card has a glossy finish and as such, it shows surface wear these types of cards are known for. But considering its age, it is in overall very good antique condition. Very light crease at the bottom right corner.

The franking verso is not clear (0-something) but with the divided back, it is after 1903, so I'm guessing it's 1904 or '05. What really makes one pause is the address: 16 Boulevard Monmartre (sic) in Paris. One can't help but wonder if Germaine might have seen Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir or Picasso in her neighborhood.
