Pretty in peach is this lovely young woman seated at a tea table alone -- or is she? Her expression may say otherwise! The details and the hand tinted dress, tea things, lamp and flowers add so much charm. This card was sent in the mail from Vianen, but is still quite lovely with no real wear. The divided back has a lengthy message and was sent to someone in Europe. View more info

French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden

By: N/A

Price: $12.95

Publisher: Paris, Reutlinger: No date

Seller ID: 0311

Condition: Near Fine


The tinting of this card is so subtle you don't notice it at first glance. But there are green leaves and a pale pink gown. I'm not sure what this lovely lady is doing, but she's definitely in a flower garden. The card has not been used, so no real clue to date. But it appears to be from the early 1900's. The back is not divided and bears no writing. Up in the left hand corner at front it says that it's part of series no. 12. View more info
