Souvenir de France-1919

This peace postcard includes a removable Belgian lace handkerchief. The various victor flags are represented in the stitching of the numbers: Great Britain, Italy, France, the United States, Belgium, and Portugal. The card was never sent.


  1. Now THAT's a great card. Where did you find this one? In fact, where do you find most of these? Love checking your website every day.

  2. Wowzerz! That's amazing. I love your blog. Thanks for sharing these wonderful postcards with us!

  3. Thanks Karin and Beth,
    I love this postcard too. It's beautiful and historically significant, but in it's own way, every postcard is...even the Jackalope. As for where I find these things...garage sales, family, antique stores, and eBay. In my opinion, old postcards are undervalued, which is great news for people who love them and want to collect them.

  4. I've never seen one with an envelope.

  5. Hello Evelyn,
    There is an extra bit of white on the edge of the scan, so maybe it looks like it has an envelope. It doesn't though, and it was meant to be sent as a postcard. It was a kinder gentler post office in those days.

  6. A very original piece of ephemera! I have never come across such a souvenir card. It is valuable and priceless at the same time.
