On this particular postcard, his signature is a simple, easy to read initials. But on much of his work, Bottaro signed his paintings with an artsy but distinctively confusing signature.
Please note that the direct scan captures the correct shade of blue (darker, richer). The photo taken at the window sill by natural daylight distorts the blue. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. No creases. Overall fine condition. Unused, I can't be exact on the age of this card other than to say, pre-WWII.
