OLD ART NOUVEAU POSTCARD ALBUM~124 cards w/stamps~1910+ Description:

You are bidding on a lovely collection of postcards in an antique Art Nouveau album, with embossed flowers on the cover (you can actually feel the raised petals and leaves). It once belonged to a Margueritte Berner--"Gretli" to friends--from Aargau, Switzerland. What's most exciting about it, though, is that a good portion of the album is full, and that t are one-hundred and twenty four cards in all! The postcards are written in German, from various hands , and they date from roughly 1910-1928. The album, itself, measures a whopping 15" tall by 9" wide.

Among the lot, you'll find many from a variety of lovely European cities: Switzerland is represented by Geneva (Geneve), Lucerne (Luzern), St. Moritz, and Zurich; France by Montreux, Nice, Paris, and La Seyne Sur Mer. T's one from the tiny, but lively, country of Monaco; another from grand, old London, England. Quite a few come from lovely Italy, including the cities and towns of San Remo, Livorno, Lugano, and Milan (Milano). Germany is also well represented with gorgeous cards from Cologne (Koln), Frankfurt, Hamburg, and Wiesbaden. However, these are just a few of the places depicted on these cards.

No doubt stamp collectors will enjoy the many old stamps from these different countries.
