Simply marked Ser.151, no artist is credited for this sumptuous Art Nouveau design. Originally printed in Germany, it bears French greetings (affectionate friendship, Margoton) and was mailed to Mademoiselle Michel in St. Blin, France (northeast of Dijon). The undivided back dates this card to 1903 or earlier. As you can see from the scans and photos, it is lightly embossed. To find this card in such good condition is a rarity. Since any message had to be written on the front, usually the cream background is either written on all about and/or soiled. There is a series of cards with this Art Nouveau design featuring the lady in different poses with slightly different compositions (with or without the fan and parrot). I have one such design in silver listed here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-7480/Silver-embossed-Art-Nouveau-Lady-Antique While this lady is adorned in light turquoise, there is also a vibrant red version. If you are as obsessed as I am about having a complete collection, let me know and I will strive to help you in your endeavor!

Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
