This is one of three postcards I have in this series featuring one of the most popular child models at the turn of the century. Use the word "mandolin" in the search box to bring up all three, as seen in the last photo.
This card was printed in Germany by the Rotophot (RPH) company, renown for quality, real photo cards colorized by hand, with many distribution offices. Hence, the French "carte postale" verso.
Mailed in 1906.
As mentioned in my other listings, I feel confident you'll be pleased with this card once in hand. IF not, return it and I'll refund your money! The direct scan is brutal and makes the surface wear on the dark chocolate background look worse than it is. Scans even capture the dust and lint on the scanner surface. Yes, there is some surface wear and there are some white specks. Just not as glaring as what you see here. Overall, for its age, in fine antique condition. About 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
