NEW "Mignon" Vintage Postcards

"Mignon" is a French opera first performed at the Opera Comique in Paris in 1866, based on Goethe's story of a little gypsy girl, the man who falls in love with her, and the man she finally realizes is her father.

Mignon photo postcards were very popular with the Victorians and Edwardians. They often show her praying or longing for her home or her lover, or with her guitar.

These French cards are lovely examples. I've selected them for their beauty and character, restored them and enhanced the color and tint on some. They are perfect for ATCs, altered art and boxes, scrapbooks, card making, assemblage, mixed media, decoupage and more. They can even be printed small for charms, pendants and other jewelry.
