This is an advertising postcard from KTC – Königsberger Thee Compagnie. I am not at all sure about what is shown in the photo. Here is the back side of the card:

The company was founded in the 19th century by the Borchardt family in Königsberg, at that time a German city, today named Kaliningrad and belonging to Russia. The company moved to Berlin. The name has been changed to Alt Berliner Thee Compagnie (the company’s homepage is not available presently). A family member, the grandson of the founder of the tea company, was the German writer Rudolf Borchardt (1877 Königsberg—1945 Trins).
