Rare French Art Nouveau Advertising Postcard Madam Sorel c1900.
Featuring the famous French romantic stage actress Madam Cecile Sorel (1873-1966), this Art Nouveau advertising postcard was commissioned by Societe des Chaussures Raoul, a shoe shop in Lyon, and is part of a series of advertising postcards issued c1900 featuring the most famous stage performers of the day. I have several other cards from this rare series. See NN310, NN367 and NN369.
Printed by Imp. Lemercier, Paris, it is postally un-used and clean verso. With some album corner marks and a couple of tiny nicks bottom left, it is signed bottom centre and in good Antique condition. Please Note: the small dark dot that appears beside Madam Sorel is NOT on the postcard but is a shadow on the photo.
