This postcard shows some signs of age and wear, but it's such a rare and charming design, I think any blemishes are insignificant. Verso, the undivided back tells us this card was printed in 1903 or earlier. So, for being at least 114 years old, the lady has managed to keep her cream white dress impressively clean! Her "painting" is actually a real photo of scenery. Since the card was likely printed in Germany [German postkarte listed first verso instead of the French carte postale], perhaps it's a landscape in Germany? A lovely lavender background and richly embossed, this is a standout novelty postcard with the art nouveau florishes. Typical antique postcard size: 3. 5 by 5.5 inches.
