There is nothing shy about this little boy, dressed in his luxurious marquis costume. While the girl demurely looks down, pouring her cup of tea, the boy unabashedly looks straight at the camera. Not a bit self-conscious, he seems born to the role! Oh, if we could just get an invite to this tea party. This is a rare postcard and to find it in this good of condition is a real coup. The top right corner tip is creased but overall, for its age, it's in fine antique condition. Sarah sent this postcard to her friend Mademoiselle Marthe Van de Genachte in October 1902. The address is Gand, which is the French name for Ghent, Belgium. So we have French writing on a German-printed postcard mailed in Belgium. This is a real photograph postcard. It looks black and white in the photos taken by natural window light, but the card is actually that creamy antique white with light yellow undertones. 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
