This antique French postcard is a novelty item with its colorful inset accents on the Edwardian lady's outfit: red on her hat, orange on her collar and green on her sleeve. These aren't sequins. I really don't know what to call them, but they are a deeply embossed (thin metal?) addition to the postcard. I don't use the word "rare" lightly; the last time I had a card like this to offer was in March 2014! You'll see that this card is also quite interesting verso. This criss-cross writing can often be found on antique postcards. I've often wondered if I could read this type of over-writing it were in English. Amid all the writing, at the very top, I do believe I see a date of October 1909. Hints of wear on this card: left edge and corner tips, one red 'incrustee' as the French call it is slightly folded. But overall, especially for its age, this card is in outstanding condition, well preserved. 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
