Another re-post from my old blog, just for Postcard Friendship Friday. The art is signed J. Alan Fletcher. You can see it is named "Butterfly" Japanese. The opera "Madame Butterfly" was produced for the first time in 1904, and I imagine its characters were well known and absorbed into the popular culture.
I've yet to see another Fletcher post card, but the back indicates there were many, many others. The hunt for these rare specimens is always part of the fun.
Be sure to check out Beth's site for more interesting postcards from around the world.
