Geneve to London international printed matter rate.
Postcards were not accepted at a reduced rate to England pre-UPU, so this card with no writing on the reverse was sent as printed matter. There is only a Basel transit date stamp in the reverse side.

The H. Werninck company was a stamp business established by a very young man and his brother who wanted to become stamp dealers. Due to being under 21 years old they were not allowed to open a business in their home town of Leipzig. They went on to publish philatelic price lists and brochures for many years.
