This ginger beauty in yellow is one in a 4-card series produced 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.)
Both cards listed here are in overall mint, unused condition. The word Phoscao verso bleeds through to the front like a light shadow. But nothing can detract from the lithographic design of the lady in the sunflower field, birds at her fingertips.
Each card is typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Circa 1904-1914.
In the last photo you'll see all four cards available. I have two full sets and am offering one complete set and others individually. I can't figure out a theme. There's birds, bats and butterflies, but no creatures with the lady in violet. The seasons, perhaps? Whatever, each one is lovely in her own way. Buy one or more or get the complete series.
