In the last photo, you'll see a matching postcard also available and listed separately. Imagine these cards matted and framed together! http://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8153/1910-Franked-Edwardian-Fashion-Glamour-Lady
The other postcard is franked 1910 but the cancellation on this one is not clear. Since it bears "bonne annee" greetings verso, from what I can make out on the franking, I believe it is 1909. In this card, the Edwardian beauty is wearing a richly detailed dress of lace and ruffles with golden yellow fabric overlays. And of course, the prerequisite fake roses attached to her bosom! Note the thick white dots of paint, the pastel blue highlights, yellow and pink colors -- all applied by hand.
The green French postage stamp is covering up the printer's info but, again, based on the other card that is in the same series, I believe it is German printed.
Because high resolution scans and photos are brutal, showing up dust and specks NOT visible to the naked eye, I recommend that you push your chair away from the computer screen about 2-3 feet and then you'll have a better idea of what this beauty will look like in hand.
Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. As to be expected for its age, this card shows silvering around the edges and very light wear at the corners/edges. No creases.
