    Beautiful hand-tinting on this card by Parisian photographer Camus. We have asked ourselves what clown character had their hair done in a pointy tuft, and found no answers in our research, but thinking about the way so many clowns classically wore a pointy hat, realized that if one wears a pointed hat, and upon removing it uncovers a dramatic tuft of pointed hair....well....that is just funny, after all :)
    Wonderful card in very nice condition. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Superb portrait of dancer Léa Piron, by Leopold Reutlinger. Almost pristine condition! Mlle. Piron is not one of those about whom we have found much history. We don't know her birth date, or place of birth, bur we do know she was a very popular dancer in her day, who appeared in a number of ballets. She also appeared in several silent films from the early 1910s, into the early 1920s.

    Charming nude featuring an Agelou model in a costume that differs only slightly from one she was wearing in a series attributed to Jean Agelou.

    There is a gentle crease/bend along the left edge of the card in the lower left quadrant. Not that easy to see, but if you zoom in you can make it out.

    Vintage Italian postcard with image from the 1923 silent film "Triboulet."

    Born Marie Antoinette Bartoli Avveduti, the strikingly beautiful Elena Sangro (1901-1973) was a popular Italian film star who began her career in 1917 and made film appearances into the 1950s.

    She was an actress, director and producer who may today though, be better known for her long, muse-like relationship with poet and political leader Gabriele D'Annunzio.

    If you follow the Youtube link below, you can see Signorina Sangro as Proserpina, wife of Pluto in the 1925 action-fantasy "Maciste in Hell." No accompanying soundtrack, and perhaps not a great film overall, but beginning near minute 22:30 Proserpina vamps around in costume orientale and long metal fingernails (you know you have to see this :), seducing the virtuous modern-day Hercules Maciste. Costumes and special effects are great fun and we read that the film made a deep impression on one Italian film maker when he saw it as a child: Federico Fellini!

    The following is taken directly from Wikipedia, which offers a detailed article on Tom Mix's life. Follow the link below to that article. It's quite a read!

    "Thomas Edwin Mix (born Thomas Hezikiah Mix; January 6, 1880 – October 12, 1940) was an American film actor and the star of many early Western movies between 1909 and 1935. Mix appeared in 291 films, all but nine of which were silent movies. He was Hollywood's first Western megastar and is noted as having helped define the genre for all cowboy actors who followed."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Mix

    With references to him in our media almost too numerous to count, Tom Mix, like many of the stars whose images appear on our vintage postcards, is inseparable from the culture of our modern world.

    Superb oranotype print from a series often attributed to the much collected photographer and inventor, (he patented an electric arc lamp for use in photographic studios in 1925), Heinrich (Henry) Traut of Munich, Germany. Many, perhaps even most, of his postcard images are unsigned, so collectors often go by models, style, studio props, etc. to identify his work. This is a wonderful series, and very much in the style of Traut's work. There is some scratching on the surface not really noticeable on the card in person, but in our scans, moreso.

    Such a magical image! We have a little Easter magic running through the house just now, and we still do the egg hunting with one of our children, so this just feels like an Easter morning to us, but clearly it's all about the magic, Easter or otherwise. The beautiful child looks out of a window that would work perfectly on a set of Rapunzel, sharing the morning with her little friend. The Greenery is perfect. We just love this one.

    P.S. We just read the back (hobbled through on one leg really, since we have almost no French at all) and discovered that this really IS an Easter card, or at least it was used as one. The sender writes, wishing the recipient a happy Easter celebration, or féte. How timely is that :)

    We're excited about this one! First...mandolin! Okay, well, we love mandolin :) but mostly we're excited about sharing this RPPC with you because it is such a beautiful example of a slow exposure natural light source photograph of the period. The portrait is intentionally artistic, we think, while at the same time there seems enough blur on the subject's hands to suggest he is actually playing the mandolin by the (we're guessing coal) fire.

    Only rarely do we come across photos like this one, so we can't help but think that this home studio RPPC was made by a fine photographer who may have produced an important body of work, though we'll probably never learn their name.

    We definitely feel this image would grace a folk music album cover!

    "It was beautiful! A colossal egg! An egg to turn the whole concept of Easter eggs on it head! But we were still concerned, I mean to say, what sort of egg was it really, and once hatched would it be friendly, or just hungry?"

    These faux nude risque images were popular with the boys down at the barbershop, sure, but what not many people know was that they were very popular with women of that era too, and for some very serious, political reasons!

    What is sometimes referred to simply as "long underwear," the "union suit," that comical outfit we associate with unwashed prospectors in the Yukon, was actually developed with women in mind. It was an undergarment designed to replace the corset, for women who were tired of the constraints placed upon them by a fashion industry that pandered to the tastes of men. It is believed that the union suit (sometimes also called the liberty suit) was so called to create an association between the anti-slavery Union forces during the Civil War, and the Suffragettes fighting not only for the vote, but among other things, the right to choose comfortable, healthy undergarments too! The women's movement of the time felt a strong kinship to the slaves of the pre Civil War period, believing in liberty and equality for all, including women! Though it might seem a small thing now, the union suit was born out of that struggle, and images like this one represented for many women a very positive step in that direction.

    Our model is all dressed up for the Easter parade...in her Birthday suit :)

    The link below will take you to a Youtube clip of Judy Garland and Fred Astaire singing and dancing to Irving Berlin's Easter Parade!

    An Aulette is one who plays an Aulos, the ancient Greek musical instrument our model is here pictured as playing. It was not a flute, or a whistle, but a reeded intrument. Archeological evidence suggests it was double reeded like the shawm, or oboe. According to Wikipedia, "Plato associates it with the ecstatic cults of Dionysus and the Korybantes," which certainly fits with the common theme of the Dionysian cult running through so much of Belle Epoque arts and entertainment media. The Wikipedia article also notes that in "The History of Musical Instruments" by Curt Sachs, 1940, the sound of the instrument was reported as being "penetrating, insisting and exciting." That description may not bring the oboe immediately to mind, but we have heard the shawm played a few times by a wonderful group of German folk musicians, Wolgemut, and those adjectives definitely apply to their playing of the shawm.

    We include, for your pleasure, but not for sale, an old postcard image of an ancient Greek or Roman stone image of an aulette.

    Our beautifully hand-colored postcard reflects the obsession of the period with the romance of classical Greece. Many Hermetic mystery organizations, like that of British occultist Dion Fortune, though practicing a Qabbalistic brand of magic, placed a great deal of emphasis on rites of Pan, etc. This is certainly a very magical image!

    A wonderful thing about many of these old Croissant (yes, like the pastry, but referring simply to the crescent moon :) cards, is that the backside is often almost as decorative as the front. Wonderful Art Nouveau decoration.

    Lovely unidentified image of Signorina Lina Cavalieri. In her time, she was said to be the most beautiful woman in the world. (Confidentially, we're inclined to agree, but would never say so out loud, as our other postcards are always listening...:)

    Orphaned at 15, Signorina Cavalieri ran away from the convent orphanage where she was placed by the state, and through great effort, talent and tenacity, became one of the most wealthy and successful opera singers of la Belle Epoque, performing internationally in all the great opera houses of Europe and the Americas.

    Below, follow our link to youtube where you can hear la Belle Cavalieri sing!

    Okay, no ghosts here, really. Just some friends having a good time at Carnaval, but a little spooky for outlanders like us, when we are not accustomed to those...well...customs! Plain and simply, most of the images we see of Carnaval show us the faces of the subjects! After all, they are having a picture taken and want to be identified. This photo, unlike the usual, lets us imagine the experience of Carnaval when the celebrants are actually masked!

    The RPPC introduces us to the magical, the wonderful and strange, within the context of the everyday. Through the lens of what was often an amateur photographer's camera, we are offered rare, and necessarily singular, glimpses into the experiences of real, long ago, people. We do love them!

    A great card, with incredible detail, but still showing its age with some foxing (those brown age spots) on the back side. Hey, when I'm eighty-something, I might show a little foxing on my backside too :)

    Kriemhild and Brunhild, Fritz Lang's Die Nibelungen, circa 1925 by Ross Verlag. We found a small cache of 1920's Ross Verlag postcards depicting scenes from Fritz Lang's German Expressionist film masterpiece "Die Nibelungen" and so we've created a temporary section to show off these wonderful cards.

    Also, below are three Youtube links to the film. The first (as indicated) offers English subtitles and combines parts one (Siegfried) and two (Kriemhild's Revenge), but the print quality is a little poor.

    The two links below that one are for parts one and two separately, offer no English subs, but are the magnificent restoration version accomplished by the F.W. Murnau Society in 2010. For this restoration, a photo-chemical rather than digital process was employed, resulting in something as close to the original film-goer's experience as possible.

    If you're not a German speaker (reader) this requires some dedication and focus on context, to say nothing of an almost five hour time investment! But do check it out for a few minutes at least. It's truly gorgeous.

    Lang's "Die Nibelungen" was based on the 13th century (or earlier) epic poem, the Nibelungenlied, and is often, though shouldn't be, confused with Wagner's "Ring Cycle." Wagner certainly drew upon the Nibelungenlied as one of his sources, but the stories really aren't the same. The film's script was written by Thea von Harbou, a screen writer, novelist and actress.

    Thea von Harbou and Lang were a married couple incidentally, and were also the writer and director of the German Expressionist classic "Metropolis" in 1927 and the chilling "M" in '31.

    Fritz Lang was one of many in the German film industry who left Germany after the Nazis came to power. He went on to direct films in Hollywood, some of which are now classics in the "Film Noir" genre. (Our favorite of those we've seen is definitely "The Big Heat." Awesome movie! )

    Each of these cards is in really very nice condition! Spectacular!

    If you're not a German speaker (reader) this requires some dedication and focus on context, to say nothing of an almost five hour time investment! But do check it out for a few minutes at least. It's truly gorgeous.

    Lang's "Die Nibelungen" was based on the 13th century (or earlier) epic poem, the Nibelungenlied, and is often, though shouldn't be, confused with Wagner's "Ring Cycle." Wagner certainly drew upon the Nibelungenlied as one of his sources, but the stories really aren't the same. The film's script was written by Thea von Harbou, a screen writer, novelist and actress.

    Thea von Harbou and Lang were a married couple incidentally, and were also the writer and director of the German Expressionist classic "Metropolis" in 1927 and the chilling "M" in '31.

    Fritz Lang was one of many in the German film industry who left Germany after the Nazis came to power. He went on to direct films in Hollywood, some of which are now classics in the "Film Noir" genre. (Our favorite of those we've seen is definitely "The Big Heat." Awesome movie! )

    Fritz Lang's Die Nibelungen, circa 1925 by Ross Verlag. We found a small cache of 1920's Ross Verlag postcards depicting scenes from Fritz Lang's German Expressionist film masterpiece "Die Nibelungen" and so we've created a temporary section to show off these wonderful cards.

    Also, below are three Youtube links to the film. The first (as indicated) offers English subtitles and combines parts one (Siegfried) and two (Kriemhild's Revenge), but the print quality is a little poor.
