This is an exceptional complete postcard series featuring real photos of a long-haired Edwardian girl with her huge bisque doll. French text at the bottom of each card carries on a story. 1. Me, I was born in a rose. 2. My doll was found in a wooden shoe at Christmas. 3.I have worked so hard to bring her up right. 4. It's bedtime, my darling. 5. Oh! Bad! 6. Don't cry, my dear. 7. Kiss me, doll. 8. Sending you a kiss. 9. Dressed to go for a walk. 10. I hope you have two dolls like mine. (?)

I have included direct scans and also photos taken at natural window light. The cards are almost chameleon-like when it comes to the coloring. Basically, the photos are black and white, but under lamp light, one can see golden undertones. Direct scans are brutal in showing every speck and spot not even visible to the eye. So I recommend pushing your chair away from the computer screen 2-3 feet, to really get an idea of how lovely these cards are.

It's hard to see but in the bottom left hand corners are the printer's initials, A.S. According to the Metropolitan Postcard Club of New York, those are likely the initials for A. Scheers of Brussells, Belgium. The undivided back tells us these cards were printed before 1904, the year France legally introduced the divided back. There is some silvering at the corners of some of the cards. I've included a closeup to show that. There are some specks inherent to the printing and some foxing spots. But overall, especially considering their age, this set of cards is in near mint condition. I took a photo of a couple of the cards held at an angle, to try to capture for you just how wonderfully preserved these cards are. There is virtually no surface wear!

Each card is about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
