This is one of two in the "Smile of Paris" fashion series I have available. The other one as seen in the last photo is listed separately here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8911/Paris-Mode-Monuments-1950s-Fashion-Vintage
Chic vintage fashion paired with Paris monuments is an unbeatable combination. And when it's the Eiffel Tower in the background, well, what more could one ask for? I think of this lady as the "pink tornado." Her wind-blown dress is a flurry of colors! Just over 4 inches wide and about 5.75 inches tall. Unused and in overall near mint vintage condition. Circa 1953-1955. UPDATE: Please note that I have two of these available. Both cards have a lightly creased corner tip, which is more feelable than seeable, visible verso but not noticeable on front.
No artist is credited but the style is very Vincente Cristellys in my opinion. (I have an artist-signed card of his listed here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8505/1950s-French-Fashion-Beauty-Blue-x22Parisiennex22 )
It was almost exactly a year ago to the day that I sold a complete series (8 cards) of "Sourire de Paris." I've been looking for more ever since. If you'd like to have the rest of the cards in the series or would like to see what the series looks like, message me and I'll send you some pics. I'd be happy to help you collect all of them or just your favorites out of the set.
