There are ink marks on the white border and light silvering on the edges of this real photo postcard, but nothing can detract from the charm of this antique French postcard! Virtually no surface wear, this is a real photo of a fantasy scene. Impressive props for this studio scenario of an Edwardian girl welcoming her new sibling, a baby just hatched in a bird's nest! Hint of lavender and pink hand coloring.
Written on verso but no date. However, I feel confident in saying this card is early 1900s, pre-WWI. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
