French artist Paul Albert Laurens (1870 - 1934) exhibited "The Suitors" at the 1913 Salon de Paris. A woman looking quite exotic, as if in a Turkish harem outfit has a harlequin at one end of the divan and a pierrot at the other. At least they seem to be fighting over her in a gentlemanly fashion. I don't think the scan does justice to this card. The fabric of her flowing pantaloons almost shimmers! This card shows wear at the edges and there are errant specks, spots. Published by Lapina of Paris, renown for their quality, and you can see the colors have definitely withstood the century despite the signs of age. About 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
