Original ANTIQUE FRENCH POSTCARD's one of cupid and Psyche and one of violets, forget me nots and lily of the valley flowers. 1900's.
The oval card features Cupid and Psyche - in ancient times Psyche was depicted as a woman with butterfly wings The card features gilt and flower edging. On the back are some words I cannot make out in small print. The card is embossed.
This card is full of flower symbolism, the language of flowers. The flower card features violets attached in a fabric, and lily of the valley flowers which are given for good luck in France and forget me nots. The card is embossed. The words mean best wishes and it was sent to Nelly Raison at the Free School in 1906. Under the best wishes is a tiny message to Nelly which |i cannot read but imagine it is romatic.
For collectors of postcards, collectors of angels, cupid flowers, perfect for framing. Perhaps for scrapbooking or cardmaking.
