Humorous Handmade Antique French Postcard with Collage of Victorian Die-CutsHumorous Handmade Antique French Postcard with Collage of Victorian Die-CutsHumorous Handmade Antique French Postcard with Collage of Victorian Die-Cuts

If collecting 'one-of-a-kind' postcards thrills you, look no further than this humorous French postcard with beaucoup Victorian die-cuts. Verso, the undivided postcard back helps date this hand-made collage to 1903 or earlier.

I know regular watercolor paper blank postcards were made at the turn of the century (I own several), but I have never seen one like this with a colored background.

Anyway, on to this silly scene. Hearts, rings and chains have been painted on. The message verso helps us make sense of the die-cuts: Pour Pierre, attention a la concurrence ...! The best I can decipher, this message says "For Pierre, be careful/pay attention to the competition!" Now you see what all those men on both sides of card represent: suitors lined up to woo the ladies.

Size: about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. Overall, in fine antique condition. The gentleman caller at the top right corner is missing a patch of color in his hair. Any signs of wear seem irrelevant considering this card is at least 112 years old! The die-cuts still bear a glossy shine.
