    Very striking model in this wonderful Jean Agelou risque lingerie image. This gal's got some serious attitude! Gorgeous lace slip.

    Jean Agelou is practically notorious for his risque and erotic postcard images of the early 1900s. Born in Alexandria Egypt to French parents in 1878, he was active as a photographer in France from at least the early 1900s. He is best known today for his risque and erotic "french postcards."

    He and his brother George produced "legitimate" work as well, though we've read in a few places that George was not, himself, the photographer, but only handled the business end of their partnership.

    Jean Agelou and his brother George, both died as a result of an automobile accident in 1921.

    Lovely card in very nice condition. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Fantastic card with Brigitte Helm, beloved star of "Metropolis," in the role of Alraune, in the Silent German film of the same name. Mandragore was the film's title for its French release, both Alraune and Mandragore meaning Mandrake, that root to which has been attached so many mysterious and occult superstitions and legends.

    The 1928 film "Mandragore," or "Alraune," was based on the novel of the same name by German author Hanns Heinz Ewers. It is a classic science fiction/horror tale, generally of the "Frankenstein" (artificial creation of life) genre, in which Fraulein Helm plays the very epitome of the femme fatale opposite the great Paul Wegener. Brigitte Helm reprised her role in a talkie version made just two years later. We've seen both versions, and so we can say for certain that this image was taken from the 1928 silent one.

    For what it's worth, we preferred the silent version, just finding it a lot more fun, though a reviewer on IMDB wrote that the talkie was much truer to the original story, so no, the talkie was definitely not a scene for scene remake, but differed from the silent version substantially (no spoilers here!)

    Below is a link to the silent version on Youtube, so if you'd like to, pop up some popcorn, and get cozy :)

    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 diva's 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 could melt a heart, or break it in two. Have fun!

    Maria Corda, born Maria Farkas in 1898, Deva Hungary, began her career in the theater in Budapest. In 1919 she began appearing in film roles. She married Alexander Korda the famed director, and starred in many films of his, also films of Michael Curtiz, in Hungary, Austria and Germany. Later she moved with Korda to Hollywood where her career fizzled, most probably due to a lack of English when the talkies came into full bloom. In 1930, she and her husband divorced. She moved from Hollywood to New York where she made a second career for herself as a novelist!

    Monica was in Hollywood California, trying to break into the moving pictures, when she met Jack. She'd lucked into a short term job as a stand-in for Myrna Loy on the production of "Daughter of Fu Manchu." Jack was a stunt double on a western they were shooting on the next lot.

    They'd given each other the once over in the studio canteen, but had never actually spoken. Still, Monica liked what she was looking at, and so did Jack. It just came down to chemistry.

    Yes, chemistry. It can be a girl's best friend, but on the day Monica and Jack finally met, an error in the mixing of lighting effects caused a chemical fire on the second floor of the warehouse where they were shooting interior scenes for Fu Manchu's castle.

    Monica was trapped in the blaze with what looked like no way out but a lead-lined urn when out of nowhere, Jack busted through a skylight, scooped her up in his arms, and with a soft-as -silk Virginia drawl said, "Don't worry Darlin', I've got you safe and sound."

    He kicked an opening in the tin wall and, stretching out on the floorboards, lowered Monica into a tangle of outstretched arms.

    Then, cries of alarm from the crowd of onlookers as a ceiling joist collapsed on our hero. Sparks and flames shot out of the small opening through which Monica had made her lucky escape, and poor Jack was never seen again.

    Never, that is, until the following Tuesday after Jack's funeral. Back in her tiny flat while removing the pins from her hair, a red-eyed and weepy Monica caught a glimpse in the hall mirror of a tall lanky Virginian giving her a friendly wink and a nod.

    The telephone rang at midnight, and sure enough, it was Jack. He wasn't certain where he was exactly, or how he got there, but the courtship was on.

    Within a week or two Jack had grown so accomplished as a poltergeist that he could manifest flower petals on her pillow, and sometimes even whisper sweet nothings in her ear without recourse to the amplification of a telephone receiver.

    Sure, Monica and Jack know the odds are against them, but they're a scrappy pair of youngsters and are confident that from manifesting flower petals on Monica's pillow or nightstand, it's not so great a leap to manifesting Jack himself, in the flesh, as it were.

    Of course their love is a secret love, but they are both willing to try.
    "After all," Monica said just yesterday, "it was destiny brought us together. Surely there can be no wrong in it, Dear."

    Now you tell one :)

    This is one of our favorite, favorites! We found this card in the collection of a Bulgarian dealer we know. Gorgeous! She looks a little like Hanni Weisse, but it might well be an RPPC. Love the heavy cake makeup, the beauty mark, and teased up hair! High 20s style, no?

    A very unusual image of actress Suzanne Miéris, playing the part of the Greek slave, Eunice, in Émile Moreau's Quo Vadis, probably at the Théâtre Antoine, Porte-Saint-Martin, in Paris.

    Quo Vadis, a play based upon a tremendously successful novel by Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz, was a great hit, and Mlle. Miéris toured with the production as far away from Paris as Brazil. It seems likely that this role catapulted her into stardom, as most of the images we find of her, show her wearing this costume.

    "Quo Vadis," the novel, was also a huge bestseller here in the USA, by the way. Like "Ben Hur," and written at around the same time, it was one of those sprawling romances of popular Christian literature, and probably rivaled "Ben Hur" in popularity for a time.

    We wrote that "probably" her name was Suzanne, because we've found several references to her in which she is called Yvonne. We haven't yet found any definite information offering us a first name, nor any biographical information whatsoever.. All of our references, thus far, have been from snippets in recent articles, blog posts, and other card dealer's listings. However, since we found many more Suzannes than Yvonnes, we're betting on the former (This is a constant challenge one faces in online research. With the best of intentions, "John" says her name is Yvonne. "Mary" repeats it. "Peter" does the same, and suddenly we all take it for fact! Unfortunately, as time passes, documentary evidence crumbles to dust, and we can only do our best).

    Incidentally, there was a Zany Miéris, who appeared in at least one silent film of Mlle. Miéris' era. Stage actresses of that time, frequently appeared in early examples of the "new" motion picture medium and though we have no established connection, "Zany" makes a wonderful nickname for Suzanne, don't you think?

    Because there is no photographer attribution on the card, we're guessing this wonderful montage image was created, by the Kunzli brothers, from an original portrait by Leopold Reutlinger of Paris, who definitely produced a number of images of Miéris in this costume.

    The Kunzli brothers, Karl and Max, of Zurich Switzerland, were in the art publishing business as early as the 1870s. Small wonder then, that when the postcard craze occurred at the turn of the century, they jumped in with both feet. Also, their experience in art publishing (they were particularly well known for their top notch chromolithographs), gives us a better understanding of the very "pictorialist" quality of many of their photographic images. This one is more reminiscent of Reutlinger's own photo-montage renditions of his portrait work, but still has very much the feel of the Kunzli brothers' work. Gorgeous. This card was published by their French satellite, Kunzli Freres (Kunzli Brothers, or just KF of Paris). minor wear to edges and corners, and a gentle thumb crease in the center, and another in the lower right hand corner. If you collect Mlle. Miéris images, please note that despite the card's minor faults, in some years of combing through these wonderful old Belle Epoque cards, this is the only time we've come across this particular card, or for that matter, a shot of her in this particular pose, making this one, for us at least, a rarity.

    Great autographed card. A rare, early silver screen item.

    Lucy Doraine was a very popular star of the silent screen. She was born Ilona Kovacs in Budapest, Hungary in 1898. We've recently heard from one of our wonderful customers that her full name was in fact Ilona Kovacs Perenyi, and that she was the daughter of a Baron Perenyi. We'll be checking out this new information, and are always grateful for the interest you take in our shop!

    Between 1918 and 1931, she appeared in 24 films. First in Hungary, then Germany, and finally in Hollywood. Early in her career, between 1918, and 1923, she was married to a fellow Hungarian who would become the famous Hollywood director, Michael Curtiz (The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Casablanca).

    Miss Doraine would not fare so well in Hollywood, unfortunately, and with the advent of the new "talking pictures" faded from popularity. We don't find a lot of history on her beyond her retirement from the screen in the 1930s. She passed away in California, in 1989.

    This card though, dates back to the height of her fame, circa 1925, when she had her own film company in Europe, was considered one of the sexiest ladies of the silver screen, and called all her own shots.

    Wonderfully decorative signature in blue ink.

    Many thanks to Wikipedia for most of our biographical info!

    We'd like to join Miss De Vere in wishing you Bonne Année, or the happiest of New Years!

    Elise De Vere (born Constance), was one of the premiere stars of her time. Born in Belgium, she was the daughter of Herbert Shakespeare Gardiner Williams (aka Charles De Vere) and Julia Ferrett, his wife. Both of them were ex-pat British stage magicians, who wandered the world, when not running magic shops! Though they spent years away, she and her family maintained their "British-ness," and never gave up their citizenship. In the Paris of the time (of today, for that matter), there were numerous communities of residents from "away" who maintained close ties to their cultural origins. The Deveres, for example, regularly attended services at a local Anglican church, or so we have been told. The fact is, that a number of big French music halls were owned by English theatrical promoters during this period, some of whom exported English performers to France (early "British invasion" :), just as France exported theirs to England. After all, the channel is not so wide.

    This card shows some wear, particularly on its rounded corners, and spotty back-side. Still, it's lots of fun, a lovely pastiche of the sort Monsieur Reutlinger was so well known for, and is priced accordingly.

    The item you are considering for purchase is, unless otherwise noted, a vintage postcard of approximately 5 and 1/2, by 3 and 1/2 inches. Postage is for fully insured, first class, shipping in a secure photo mailer (to avoid any damage to your purchase in the mails), and we happily combine shipping on all paper goods.

    "Come hither, sweet robin,
    And be not afraid,
    I would not hurt even a feather;"

    --Old Nursery Rhyme

    Wonderful example of an effectively corseted waist, we think. I really wish we could learn a little about Mlle. d'Artois, but she remains a mystery. Such wonderful detail on the gown, such a beauty herself, and if ever there was a "come hither" look, she certainly has it down pat, wouldn't you say? :)

    Wonderful postcard print of a portrait by the great Georg Gerlach of Berlin. Posted in Belgium.

    Precious Bathing Beauty in Green! 1920s Vintage Postcard by Lola

    So cute! Not so typical bathing beauty image. Handkerchief on head, a green suit, and a trompe l'oeill depicting that hazy weather that rings a lot truer for us than those super clear sunny beach fantasies :)

    Wonderful haremesque portrait of theater personality Sita Lavalliere. Rare as all get out, why? Because RPPC! Though this card was very finely produced, it was probably printed in a very limited run. It even has the performer's name imprinted on the image, which was, at that time, a very unusual expense for what was probably a "promotional" RPPC. The publisher was a photographic studio in Lisbon (see embossed studio logo), not a major postcard printer/publisher like S.I P., or Rotophot. We have absolutely no idea who this young lady was exactly...a singer, a dancer, a bareback rider in the circus (that's our personal fantasy for Mlle. Sita :) but the image is top quality.

    Lovely woman with such an expression of longing. Beautiful Italian monochrome tinted postcard from around 1930. Bears a Swiss stamp issued in '31 showing William Tell's son with crossbow and apple. This design was on a stamp originally issued in 1907.

    Card was published in Italy by Flore'al, a publisher we rarely see.

    Let the great Hoagy Carmichael and Miss Lauren Bacall explain just how much they share our model's feelings as they perform "Am I Blue" in Howard Hawks' 1944 masterpiece, "To Have and Have Not."

    Based on Hemingway's 1937 novel, this was the 19 year old Miss Bacall's film debut, and where her famous romance with married, 45 year old Humphrey Bogart caught fire. We're a decade and a half off in timing on this one, but any excuse to hear Hoagy Carmichael tease that keyboard :) Link to film clip below:

    One of the very finest risque body stocking images we've run across. E.L.D., or E. Le Delay, as it was also called, was a successful French postcard publisher operating between 1900 and 1930. Owned by Ernest Louis Desire Le Delay, they were particularly successful during WWI when they produced many, many, battlefield scene and propaganda images. Like many companies, in 1930 it suffered in the economic collapse, went bankrupt, and closed its doors for good.
    A fine card with what appears to be a love letter penned on the reverse side. It begins, "My dearest, my man," We'll leave it to you to translate, or imagine. the rest :)

    Like a tiny sea nymph caressing a sand dollar, a wonderful image of the Russian dancer Nina Constantinova from a work by French artist Pierre Carrier-Belleuse. This piece of art is so like a number of works by the famous American artist Maxfield Parrish! Minor creasing at corners.

    No one knows for certain these days, which of those two famous American humorists it was, Mark Twain or Will Rogers, who encouraged the public to "Buy land! They're not making any more of it!" But the same idea could certainly apply to antique postcards, particularly in the case of a hand-colored French nude like this one.

    Our scanner cannot even approach the richness of color on these cards when they are viewed in person. The gold paint on this card is rich and bright, but just doesn't pop in the scan. These are becoming more and more difficult to find, but we recently located a small cache of them we are very pleased to share with you. This one, as you can see, is in nearly pristine condition.

    No one knows for certain, these days, which of those two famous American humorists (Mark Twain, or Will Rogers) it was who encouraged the public to "Buy land! They're not making any more of it!" But the same sentiment certainly applies to antique postcards, particularly in the case of the hand-colored variety.

    Our scanner cannot even approach the richness of color on these cards when they are viewed in person. These hand-colored "French" postcards (they are indeed French, but also nude images, as the term colloquially implies) are becoming more and more difficult to find, but we recently located a small cache of them we are very pleased to share with you.

    This one, published by P-C Paris, sports a wonderful Art Deco background.
