During the Victorian era it became popular to use flowers to send secret messages (floriography). Especially messages of love, and this beautiful postcard is one of a series issued c1900 to convey that message.
With an exquisite Art Nouveau illustration of two young women's faces flowering from a vine of pink Tulips against a stylized background of tiny hearts and arrows.
According to Victorian symbolism..the Tulip represents perfect love.
This French issue Postcard is stamped and franked 1905 and postally used to an address in France.
The faces and stems of the trailing vine are in monochrome shades of pale blue but the beautiful tulips are in shades of palest pink enhanced by hand gilding on the hearts and arrows.
It is an un-signed piece, but most probably by Kirchner, and a really lovely example of the Art Nouveau Postcard.
With some mild corner bumps it is in good Antique condition.
I have another in this beautiful flower series listed..see NN1037
