This postcard is the last one in a rare series depicting boys flying into space and harassing the Man in the Moon. As you can see from Mr. Moon's expression and the two feathers stuck in him, he's not real happy about these boys visiting him! [I'd be happy to help you get the complete series, but I can't promise the color tones would all be the same.]
This postcard, printed by a German company (B. Dondorf), was mailed in France in 1919. I can't read German but I gather the sender is offering good wishes for the new year (Bonne Annee/Happy New Year is stamped on the front at bottom) or perhaps trying to get everyone together for a new year's party on Dec. 30, 1919??
This card has rich color tones and the surface of the cardstock is lightly textured, as shown in the closeup photo. Typical antique postcard size, about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Now, this card has a slight "warp." After time in a hard plastic sleeve, it may flatten out and the warp doesn't distract the image at all, but I wanted to point it out.
