This French Christmas card is very kitsch, with a heart-tugging ambiance. It's a charming combination of real and fake that comes together to instantly transport us back to an old-fashioned Christmas! Writing verso but no date. However, with the intro of "Dear Comrade" and mention of the sender's military address, I feel confident in dating this card to WWI or earlier. It's a real photo that has been colorized by hand. The girl's dress is a wonderful shade of blue-green with the stripe pattern highlighted with a stroke of pink.
Typical antique postcard size, about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. No creases but the glossy surface shows some wear as well as specks/spots inherent to the printing. Please note that I've temporarily relocated. New computer screen and adjusting to new surroundings, light sources. I strive to capture the correct tones and shades in postcards, but it's often simply not possibly with the glossy surface and light refracting. However, I've included a direct scan as well as photos in different light. What you see on screen may not look exactly the same in hand, but I guarantee you'll be pleased with this sweetie.
