According to Wiki, Elizabeth Sonrel (1874 Tours – 1953 Sceaux) traveled to Florence and Rome as part of her art studies. I believe she also visited Venice, as this 1912 Salon de Paris postcard is titled "Daughter of the Doge." Doge is what the ruling magistrate of Venice was called. Note the ships in the background of blue. Please note that I have included direct scan as well as a photo taken at natural daylight. Since computer monitors and color calibration often vary, the card in hand may not be exactly the tones you see here, but it will be somewhere in between and definitely beautiful with richly saturated colors! This is one of two of Sonrel's colorful beauties I have available.

Typical antique postcard size: 3. 5 by 5.5 inches. Hints of wear on the edges and the white borders show scuff marks, but overall, especially considering its age, this card in in overall excellent antique condition. Also, note that it was printed by Lapina of Paris. Lapina cards were known for the gold on the postcard outside edges. My photo doesn't capture that well but indeed, this card does have the gold accented edges.
