Alphonse Mucha 'Salome' French Postcard 1900 Extremely Rare.
This is arguably Alphonse Mucha's most famous and collectible design.
And also one of the rarest..especially in postcard format.
Entitled simply 'Salome' the grand master of Art Nouveau decorative design created this image in 1897 for the iconic French lithographic series L'Estampe Moderne.
This Postcard edition dates to the same period and is hand dated, stamped and franked 1900. Sent to Mademoiselle Louise Garague in Gard France. One of three postcards sent by the same sender to the same recipient in the same year.
Signed in the print lower right it is postally used and in very good Antique condition.
I sold the original L'Estampe Moderne lithographic version a while ago for more than $3000.00 and saw one listed recently for almost $5000.00..so they continue to rise rapidly in value.
Extremely hard to find. One for the true Mucha collector.
This is one of three postcards I am listing today all sent by the same person to Mademouselle Louise Garague in 1900. The other two NN488 and NN489 both feature hand painted extra designs.
