Two beautiful examples of the style of art known in English as Art Nouveau which flourished between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. It is known by different names in different languages: Jugendstil in Germany for instance. Curiously in France it was given the name Modern Style.
The top card is one of Alfons Mucha's famous posters while the lower one is a perfume label from Russia. Both were sent from Germany.
