This is a real photo postcard: a Belle Epoque model portraying Phryne, the famous fourth century prostitute from Ancient Greece who was so beautiful that she was said to be the model for the original Aphrodite statue. Glorious long tresses, exotic jewelry and a very revealing gown make this courtesan a standout. The top left corner tip is creased, but overall, this card with a glossy finish ("emaillographie" verso) is in near mint condition. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. The divided back tells us this card was printed after 1904; likely dates from 1904 to around WWI.
