Golden Age of Illustration Artist Ethel Franklin Betts Postcard from Polish Count's CollectionGolden Age of Illustration Artist Ethel Franklin Betts Postcard from Polish Count's CollectionGolden Age of Illustration Artist Ethel Franklin Betts Postcard from Polish Count's CollectionGolden Age of Illustration Artist Ethel Franklin Betts Postcard from Polish Count's Collection

This postcard art reproduction is an illustration by Ethel Franklin Betts used in the 1905 book "The Heart of Lady Anne." "Oh! little mask!" is the caption in the book. Does this postcard make you want to read the story now? Printed by M.M. Vienne (Austria), this postcard is from a Polish Count's collection. I have yet to totally figure out what kind of an arrangement or system Count Benedict Tyszkiewicz had worked out: if it was the printing company itself, an art representative or who exactly mailed the cards to him, but items from his collection all bear this "signature" purple blue stamp with his name and address. Along with the postal franking, he apparently added his own note as seen on front: Paris, May 7, 1908, and those ziggie initial lines. Considering its age, this card is in near mint condition -- except there are a couple of small paper patches on the masked gentleman's dark green coat. When you use the zoom feature, when you see fuzzies, fibers or other specks, please keep in mind that direct digital scans are brutal, showing many details only visible looking through a jeweler's loupe. These are things inherent to the paper content and the century-old printing method. With the naked eye, as mentioned, it's the spots on the gentleman's jacket that are visible to the naked eye. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.

I have several of these cards by Ethel and her sister Anna available from the Count's collection. Buy at least two and I'll pay for shipping/insurance within the US!
