Mignonwas an opéra comique written by Ambroise Thomas and first performed in Paris, in 1866. The opera was hugely popular, and its main character, a tragic Gypsy girl, set the public's imagination on fire.

With the advent of the picture postcard, images of Mignon flooded the European and UK markets. You will find Mignon with horses, toddler Mignon, infant Mignon, and one of my favorites, the Esquimaux Cat Mignon. Often, whole sets of several cards depicting scenes from the story were published.
