I have three versions of this postcard currently available in my shop. There are several in the series featuring this exotic Art Nouveau design of a lady in different sitting 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 A light turquoise version is listed here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8189/Embossed-Art-Nouveau-Postcard-Lady-Fan Now, I'm pleased to offer yet another version with this gold/bronze background. It is covered in Spanish (or perhaps Portuguese) writing. It was mailed to Cartgena in 1904! The woman in all her exotic glory is in an embossed design of silverized (pearlized) blue or pearlized. With all the reflective surface, it is hard to register the colors accurately, especially since they change depending upon the lighting. But hopefully between the direct scan and the photo taken in natural daylight, you'll get an idea of how unique this version is.
The left bottom corner has darkened from being held in place with an album corner, but overall for its age, this card is in exceptional condition. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
