With overtones of Alphonse Mucha, we have a lady in profile wearing an exotic headdress surrounded in a circle of stars. Behind this is a rectangular embossed frame with floral designs. There is a light airbrushing of lavender over the right half of the medallion that really plays shadowy tricks on your eyes! An exceptional Art Nouveau design, no doubt about it. This is a German printed postcard, unused. The undivided back helps us date this card to late 1890s to 1903. Typical antique postcard size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. The cardstock has separated, the backing come apart at the top right corner for about 1 inch inland. The off-white background of this postcard, especially verso, shows signs of age and foxing, but oh my, the heart of the image with the gold overlay and embossing, is so stunning! For its age, I still wanna say this card is in overall fine antique condition. Not excellent, but she's a standout!
