PORTRAIT OF A GLAMOROUS FRENCH “FLOWER CHILD” (HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT)

This vintage real photo postcard features an attractive young woman who appears to be in her teenage years. She looks glamorous in her fabulous dress, her funky jewelry, and her large flower pinned to her dress. To top it all off, is her big hat with accompanying ribbons and feathers. The young lady has picked a pedal off the flower and one wonders if she is asking herself, “he loves me?, he loves me not?”. The game has French origin and it’s purpose is to ascertain whether a person’s object of affection reciprocates that affection. A pantomime version of this game is seen in the ballet “Giselle” staged in 1841. The teenage subject of this photograph exhibits an expression that exudes self-assurance and a good sense of humor. She also looks, forgive the term,  “cool”.  This vintage postcard has a French stamp and was postmarked in 1909. Note the creases in the top left hand corner of the reverse of the postcard. Overall, the postcard is in good condition (see scans).
