Antique French PC *HP Florals, Ribbons

These old French Postcards have caught my attention lately. Most, including this one, are to commemorate St. Catherine's Day. St. Catherine was the patron saint of unmarried women, so I gather this tradition was to pray for marriage for the unwed young ladies. The cards are always very sentimental, rather like our valentines, but do usually feature a couple on the front. This one has actual handpainted flowers as well as royal blue ribbon rosettes and a horseshoe (for good luck finding that husband, I presume!). Measures 5 3/8 by 3 3/8 inches. French writing on the back. Good condition.
