The original item from FrenchKissed is now SOLD.
The horse's back leg and tail have been torn off of the green card in the intervening decades, but as you look at these photos, I'm sure you'll understand why I want to keep both of these cards together. Both have a military theme and both are covered verso with loves notes and hearts. "Celle que J'aime" is French for "the one that I love." J.G. and J.B. were apparently crazy about one another!
It's near impossible to get the colors accurately captured, but I have included several shots in different light and angles. The horse card has a hand-painted green design on the plastic card with dried green sprigs and a satiny bow in shades of lavender-pink. The other card has a dark blue design on the plastic card background and warm peachy orange ribbon with pale yellow stripes. The ribbon edging the glittered heart radiates from hot red orange to yellow.
There is a light speck visible on the soldier's cheek on the orange card, but overall (except for the wounded horse) these cards are in wonderful vintage condition, very charming and extra special.
Although not dated, I'm guessing these are likely from right after WWI, the early Art Deco years.
Each card is about 3.25 by 5.25 inches.
