This series of 4 postcards feature Belle Epoque stars as playing card queens. Cleo de Merode is the queen of hearts. Saharet is the queen of clubs. The Belle Otero is queen of spades and Lina Cavaleri is the queen of diamonds. It's near impossible to find complete sets, let alone in good condition. This set is a lovely exception. Handpainted and hand detailed. Charming mix of real photo with illustration. Unused cards with undivided backs (dates them to 1903 or earlier). Overall, in near mint condition: The club card has one creased corner. Any other signs of age/wear on corner tips or specks or spots are minimal. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
