I've mentioned before on this blog how irresistible I find French postcards from the 1920s. Published by Paris printers P-C, this is yet another wonderful example of the hand-tinted real photograph vintage postcards with the extraordinary garish colours that were evidently enormously popular at the time. I just love the detailed decoration on the desk lamp - I'm pretty sure that IKEA produced a retro-looking lampshade some years back which was rather similar!
Whilst this postcard may be uncirculated, luckily for us there is a dated message on the reverse - 16th June, 1924. The card is in immaculate condition bar a little metallic tarnishing around the edges indicating that this probably a silver bromide print.
