Embossed Art Nouveau Maiden with Daffodils Postcard.
This is my current favourite Art Nouveau Postcard.
I have seen it advertised at a much higher price as being by the great Raphael Kirchner, but as it is unsigned, I can only say it is in the style of Kirchner.
The edges are embossed and the subject appears to be in bass relief.
It features a lovely young maiden in a sensual gown caressing a daffodil.
She is in full profile in typical Art Nouveau fashion and has the requisite long hair and dreamy Preraphaelite expression.
The organic design of the background adds to the Art Nouveau ambiance.
Published by M M Vienne it has an early un-divided back dating it to c1900.
It is postally un-used, blank verso, and in very good condition.
