About this Bonne Année La Catrina Postcard

The French tradition of New Year’s greeting cards started with the tradition of the first greeting cards in England in 1843. The French only sent New Year’s greetings as opposed to Christmas cards. Since the French Revolution (1789 – 1799) people avoided any religious undertones and later was inforced by the separation of the Church and State in 1905.

Stick out from the rest and buy this small, one-of-a-kind work of art to tell that special someone Happy New Year!


This postcard is postmarked 1907. All cards mounted on white 250 g/m² paper with trimmed edges. Vintage postcard, overpainted with acrylic paint, 13.9 x 9 cm, no frame. Signed and dated in pencil on back. This can be easily erased in the event you want to use the card.

The cards are packaged in cellophane with an informative text about the history of the image on each card and when it was first published.

Please note that since these are antique postcards, some might contain small tears, pinholes and/or scratches. Fleshy tries her best to lovingly craft each card, but sometimes a tear might be too close to the overall subject to cut it out. The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.

Delivery throughout Europe and overseas is with normal postal mail in cardboard envelopes so nothing should bend. Postage and packaging are calculated at checkout.
