This Raphael Kirchner postcard is creased at top and bottom but the heart of the striking art nouveau postcard is as beautiful as when it was printed more than a century ago. Mailed in 1902 to Frederic, a soldier stationed in Montbrison, the sender wrote, "Thank you for the good wishes, my lieutenant!" Oh la la! This is a color lithograph with metallic pigment on card stock. All that 'gold' makes the sun's golden rays. There are 6 cards in this Femmes Soleil (Women in the sun) series. I can send you an online website link to see all six, courtesy of Leonard Lauder's collection on file with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I'm happy to help you collect the rest or another one like this without creases but as you are likely aware, the price of Kirchner postcards are only rivaled by the price of Alphonse Mucha cards; they are tres cher. I hesitated to offer this until I saw tacky soiled ones on that auction site which will be left unnamed listed for $40! This card is typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
