English Art Nouveau 'Snake Woman' Postcard c1900.
This English issue Antique Postcard is Chromographed in Prussia and features a beautiful Art Nouveau maiden in an amazing snake headdress. It is one of a pair from the same series I am listing today.
The maiden is dressed in a lovely burgundy gown with a floating shawl pinned to her shoulder and wears some simply stunning armlets and necklaces, but it is her headdress that truly amazes.
It is a snake entwined with peacock feathers and beads, and it dresses her flowing dark hair to great effect.
Published by Regal Art Co, London it is part of their Rapco series and numbered 311.
Postally un-used and clean verso it has a small corner 'turn' upper left but is otherwise in good Antique condition.
