This postcard art reproduction is an illustration by Ethel Franklin Betts used in the 1905 book "The Heart of Lady Anne." "And the peacocks" is the caption in the book. Another illustration from the book is listed here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8370/Golden-Age-Illustration-Artist-Ethel-Franklin

Printed by M.M. Vienne (Austria), this postcard is from the collection of Count Benedict Tyszkiewicz, Polish royalty who called Paris home. Items from his collection all bear his "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; there are some light scratch marks in the background left of the Grecian column. When you use the zoom feature and 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, this card is in almost perfect condition and I guarantee you won't be disappointed once you have it in hand. The scan does not do it justice. The colors are so rich and deeply saturated. All of these cards of the Betts sisters that I'm offering from the Count's collection have been out of the light, well preserved for the past century in an album. The colors look lighter in the group photo due to natural daylight coming in on it, but the scan/first picture captures the colors more accurately.

Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
