This is one of 8 French advertising postcards featuring beautiful Art Nouveau ladies set in a musical theme. I think the bagpipe steals the scene but look again and notice the little lamb down by the woman's feet!
The card is artist signed, but unfortunately, just the initials CS.
Circa 1904-1914, this card is unused and overall in near mint condition.
In the last two photos you get a glimpse of the rest of the series. These were offered by Phoscao, a French company that produced a chocolate drink that promised to be the perfect elixir for digestion. The text verso says: Le plus exquis des dejeuners, le plus puissant des reconstituants. (The most exquisite of breakfasts, the most powerful of fortifiers.) However, with phosphate as one of the ingredients (mostly used in fertilizers today), I believe skipping the drink and collecting their pretty postcards would be the healthiest choice!
Each card is typical antique size, of about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
