    Welcome to "Idols of the 1920s," where we hope to provide a special, cozy place for those of you who long to linger among the stars of the early silver screen, the hoofers and songbirds of dear old vaudeville's fading hours, a few divas of the grand opera, and of the operetta too, flappers, flappers, more flappers, and of course, and perhaps especially, those femmes fatales who with one smoldering glance can melt a heart, or break it in two. Have fun!

    Gorgeous! Very early image of Broadway showgirl and Hollywood film star Joan Crawford in her silent film days, from the highly collectible series Les Vedettes de Cinema, published by Alfred Noyer. Extra fine, unposted condition.

    The beautiful actress in this image is Marguerite Bresil. Born in 1880, she made her first appearance on the stage of the Theatre Gymnase in Paris, in 1899, and within a few years was a tremendous star. We have long admired this image and are so pleased to have finally found one for the shop. Such an expression. Photo by Leopold Reutlinger of Paris, published by S.I.P., or Societe Industrielle de Photographie. A lovely card in very nice condition, circa 1900.

    ***Point of Interest*** A footnote on page 331 of the book "Cartier," by Hans Nadelhoffer, reads that "the "Recamier" hairstyle was popularized by the actress Marguerite Bresil."
    So, in keeping with Red Poulaine's reputation of being highly regarded by all practical time travelers as a valued source of both images and ephemeral information, we offer you the link below, to a blog entry offering step by step instruction in the Recamier Coiffure!

    Two lovely young stage performers, Miss Amy, and Miss Remple, in charming, off the shoulder costume, hand-tinted, such gorgeous braids. Please note the "star" mark in the bottom corner. This is the production mark of Monsieur G. Piprot, who operated a postcard production company out of number 2 Rue de l'Amsterdam in Paris. He made use of a process called emaillographie, which like the process oranotypie, (used by the prodigious Mr. Steglitz of Germany), was intended to add depth and clarity to the postcard print. The famous Walery, also Nadar, and many other famous Parisian photographers of the time were often published by M. Piprot under his star label. Not so common, were images actually photographed by G. Piprot, as were these two wonderful cards.

    Quite nice condition on both. Please examine our high res scans for detail. We have room only for four scans, so we are giving you two full size fronts, and two close crops, but only one back. The two cards were posted by the same individual, in a lovely hand, and in violet ink, and are very similar in appearance, but please feel free to request a scan of the second card's back. It is only an Etsy convo away!

    Charming, charming, image of dancer Lucy Florval, by Leopold Reutlinger of Paris, circa 1900. This is the third time we've offered one of these cards in our shop. They don't last long. We are also posting an image of a poster of Mlle. Florval, in the same costume, by decorative artist Maurice Biais, The poster is NOT FOR SALE. Only the postcard by Reutlinger is being offered for sale. We thought it was interesting though, that this poster, done in 1901 by Biais, appears to have been drawn from the series of photos by Reutlinger. This hints at how photography, a relatively new art form, was already influencing long established traditions in popular graphic arts. Biais, whose style is not so much to our tastes when compared with masters of Belle Epoque commercial art like Jules Cheret, was nevertheless much loved, (This poster is housed in the Biblioteque d'Arsenal), and his work, posters (often seen as heavily influenced by the work of artist Aubrey Beardsley), postcards (hand drawn and colored), wall paper, etc., was much sought after even in 1901, when this poster of Mlle. Florval was made.

    Such a beautiful young woman. Gorgeous hand- coloration. Paul Boyer was great. Sorry, we don't know anything about the artiste. Possibly posted in 1903? but with the divided back, probably a misprinted '05 or '08.

    Another marvelous A. Traldi published image. Maria Melato was a very well respected Italian actress, mostly on the stage, although she did make a few silent films. She began her career in the very early 1900s in Italy, and traveled with much success internationally as well. In 1950, by then in her sixties, Signora Melato was traveling to Milan, to take part in a radio play being produced there, when she died while falling from the train.
    Wonderful unposted card in fine condition.

    Charmingly risque French Postcard (RPPC). Wonderfully clear definition, glossy surface. Quite fine condition. One fault, although difficult to see unless holding just right, is that the stamp and some embossed print on the verso have left a slight impression on the front.

    Is it a cloche hat, or a very carefully wrapped turban? We don't know, but it's awfully cool. Renee Heribel is a bit of a mystery to us. She apparently made her film debut opposite (or at least supporting), Gloria Swanson in the 1923 silent costumer Madame Sans-Gene, made a dozen, or so, films following that one, and then, in 1932, pretty much went to ground. Now, when we're trying to dig up history on one of our Belle Epoque dancers and come up empty, that isn't so odd, but by the time we get into the 1920s and the silver screen, we can usually find something...a tidbit...we ask for no more than this! But nothing. Presumably the reason her career ended in the early thirties was because like so many silent film stars, she found the transition to sound difficult. We'll keep looking for more. One point of interest though, is that "Madame Sans-Gene" was that time Gloria became a countess! No, not her character in the film, "she," became a duchess, but Miss Swanson herself married her translator (the third Mr. Gloria Swanson), during the shooting of the film in France, and since he was quite properly Le Comte Henri de la Falaise, she naturally became la Comtesse!
    As to Mlle. Heribel's autograph, we come across signed cards every so often. If we ever come across a copy of the film script to the Maltese Falcon, signed by Dashiell Hammett, the entire cast, and presented to Humphrey Bogart with all sorts of artfully scribbled quips and funny little drawings, we'll have the thing authenticated. But until then, the experts will generally charge us more than the card itself is worth, so we assume it's for real but throw in the caveat that we ourselves are definitely NOT experts. We don't sell something as autographed unless we ourselves are satisfied that it is, however. The card was signed Renee Heribel. The ink pooled in the appropriate places just as fountain pen ink does, and additionally, it was signed in what looks like blue ink, while the card was printed in black.
    A very nice unposted card.

    So precious. Gorgeous tones, touch of silvering like a faint icing on the cake. Beautiful embossing work, very small dent in back of frame, and garage sale price in pencil. Very faint shadow on photo where triangle tip of frame has rested against print while stored. Negligible issues really, while the condition otherwise-even the material at the folded edges is uncracked, and the slot for fitting the triangle point look as if it had never even been touched! Remarkable! % and 3/4 by 8 and 3/4 inches folded flat with an image size the same as the classic postcard size. Makes us wonder if it was an RPPC plate! Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Pola Negri in a snakeskin cloche, black lace, and a finger ring with rocks on it that would chill a martini over. Born Apolonia Chalupiek in 1897 Poland, Miss Negri rose out of poverty and began her performing career as a ballerina. She was struck by tuberculosis, however, and had to give up dancing. She became for a time one of the most popular femmes fatales in Hollywood. She had a long affair with Charles Chaplin, and then Rudolf Valentino, apparently they were lovers until his death in 1926. She was one of the two major femme fatales at Paramount studios, (Gloria Swanson being the other), and according to Chaplin, Paramount dreamed up all kinds of false rivalry and jealousy between Pola and Gloria for publicity purposes. Card is in very nice condition. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    P.S. Lots more info on Wikipedia, from which we drew most of ours. Thanks, Red

    Lovely portrait of one of the most famous dancers of La Belle Epoque. Nice corset image too, for fans of that sub-genre. Below please find the link to our pretty extensive blog post on the life and career of Caroline Otero. It's filled with wonderful images, history, and even a link to a video in which Otero blazes the trail for countless performers to follow as possibly the world's first movie star! Wonderful unposted card in very nice condition.

    The Ballet de L'Opera de Paris, is the oldest national ballet company in the world, originating in the early 1670s. Of the four dancers pictured in this image, we are only a little familiar with Mme. Lobstein, who was an internationally famous dancer of that period.
    In 1861, work began on the new opera house on the Boulevard des Capucines in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, and when, it was completed in 1875, the company moved into their new home, where they perform to this day. The name of this marvelous structure was eventually changed frome the Salle des Capucines to the Palais Garnier after its architect Charles Garnier (pronounced Garn-yay).
    Just to help set the mood, we are posting in this listing an image of the Palais Garnier. This is NOT FOR SALE, however. Only the postcard of the four dancers is for sale.
    Card is in relatively poor condition, but is a wonderful image, hard to find, and we had to have it for the shop.
