Petite Ballerina at the Paris Opera Original Watercolor Antique French PostcardPetite Ballerina at the Paris Opera Original Watercolor Antique French Postcard

This antique postcard is an original watercolor painted by the sender. I wish I could tell you that Charles Bayome (Bayonne) was a famous French artist, but unfortunately my online research couldn't verify anything. Nonetheless, the blonde-haired ballerina is a charmer! Verso, Charles wrote: "My dear Hortense, Opposite I did a portrait of Yvonne if she became a dancer at the opera. Do you find a resemblance?"
This card is postally mailed but the franking is not readable. However, I can tell you that this version of the sower on the red 10 centimes stamp first came out in 1906. My guess-timate is that this card was sent sometime between 1906 and the first world war. It is typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Superb antique condition for this miniature work of art!
