Alsace postcards are illustrated postcards depicting the region of Alsace, located in eastern France. They were created from the end of the 19th century and were very popular throughout the 20th century.
They are characterised by their unique and original illustrations and often depict famous Alsatian landmarks, such as Strasbourg Cathedral, Petite France, the typical half-timbered houses of the region, vineyards, forests, rivers and rural landscapes.
They are often colourful and vivid, using bold hues to attract the attention of the recipients and using a variety of themes, ranging from Alsatian monuments and rural landscapes to scenes of everyday Alsatian life and Alsatian historical and cultural events.
Alsatian postcards are today considered rare and valuable collector's items, witnesses of Alsatian history and culture. Their unique illustrations and artistic quality make them a choice item for art collectors or old postcard enthusiasts.
