Bats Birds and Butterflies: Antique French Lithographic Advertising Postcard Set of 4 UnusedBats Birds and Butterflies: Antique French Lithographic Advertising Postcard Set of 4 UnusedBats Birds and Butterflies: Antique French Lithographic Advertising Postcard Set of 4 Unused

I can't determine the theme of this series of cards produced by Phoscao, but this foursome is a charming set for sure. The exotic bat lady under the midnight moon rather steals the show. The violet lady has no companions but lovely nonetheless. The lady with butterfly wings adds another touch of fantasy and the bird lady among sunflowers completes the set.
These cards are in overall near mint condition, considering their age: circa 1904-1914. One creased corner tip among the lot. The advertiser's name bleeds through on some of the cards to create a light smudge 'shadow' at the center top. But for the most part: unused and in fine antique condition.
Each card is about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.

Trivia: This postcard series is one of about 50 cards I bought from a dealer at a flea market in Antibes, France, this past spring. The French Riviera is not all sun and sand. The "Siberian Express" brought snow to the area for the first time in 15 years. The morning of this flea market my fingers were chilled to the bone and numb digging through a mish-mash of postcards in shoe boxes! What a surprise to find this series looking untouched for the past century!
