I call this woman "Dreaming's Cousin." Who is "Dreaming"? Check her out here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8975/Neoclassical-Beauty-Day-Dreaming-Art-Nouveau
The color scheme is the same in both postcards: green, brown, mauve. And the style is the same: Neoclassical beauty in a swirl of Art Nouveau designs. Also, note this postcard has the same number: A. & M. B. No. 398. That's for Albrecht & Meister of Berlin, a major German postcard publisher at the turn of the 19th century renown for the quality of their printing.
And like "Dreaming," I believe it bears repeating: If the artist of this card/series were ever identified, I dare say the value would increase many times over. The Art Nouveau style rivals any of the big names out there, in my opinion.
This card is unused with an undivided back, which dates it to about 1898-1903. Overall, near mint condition.
