These two embossed postcards are German-printed, but covered all over with French script. Sent to Mademoiselle Lily, these cards are not postally franked or dated. However, the undivided back tells us they were printed in 1903 or earlier. The little girl on this collage was a regular postcard model at the turn of the century. But it delights me to say that out of the hundreds of thousands of postcards I've collected and sold in the past almost 20 years, I've never seen a set like this! The card with the miniature mistletoe leaves begins by saying, "Oh, the beautiful and nice postcard I received this morning!" As for the rest of the tiny script, I'll leave it to you. So petite and neat and ALL over, it becomes a graphic element and part of the collage design. The cards are, of course, quite similar. The girl's pose is the same in both; just the mistletoe design is different. The large mistletoe is embossed. I started to separate them and sell them individually, but I hope you'll understand when I say, it just seems wrong to do so when they've been together for over a century. The top left corner of the large mistletoe card is lightly creased but overall, these cards are in near pristine condition. And what a lovely deckled edge! Each card is typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
