    Such a charming image! Four young girls costumed as if for a musical production of the Mignon type. Tragic young Gypsies, one and all, well we hope things turn out well for them :)

    Please note the small arrow drawn above the head of the leftmost young lady. It harms an otherwise gorgeous print, but still, a charming, charming card.
    Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Pictorialism was a movement in photography (mostly in the late 19th, early 20th century) that promoted the position that a photographer can create a work of art with their camera. Seem kinda obvious? Today, yes. But in the 1800s, despite the fact that artists like Manet, Degas, and Cézanne were known to make use of photographs in their work, the camera was often seen by the fine arts community as merely a tool for recording solid fact, rather than creating art. In their efforts to use and promote photography as an artistic medium, pictorialists explored numerous techniques both during initial film exposure and during the development process in order to enhance and manipulate the finished product.

    Hermann Schieberth (1876-1948) was born in Romania but later moved to Vienna, where he became well known as a portraitist and a pictorialist. Here is a really lovely example of his work, one of his nudes, apparently printed in lithograph. This card was printed by Kilophot, a printer known for their fine lithography in both halftone and continuous tone and their publication of work by artists of the Wiener Werkstaette.

    Though Schieberth's pictorialist work is sometimes said to have taken place later, in the '20s, we know that Kilophot closed their doors by 1920, so this card was published sometime between 1914 (when kilophot opened) and 1920.

    Hermann Schieberth is probably best known today as the photographer for whom the now much better known photographer Trude Fleischmann worked as an assistant in her early days in Vienna. Since she struck out on her own in 1920, opening her own studio, this image may well have been produced during her time working with Schieberth.

    Both Fleischmann and Schieberth fled Austria following the Anschluss in '38, Fleischmann to Paris, and then New York, and Schieberth to Shanghai, where he passed away in 1948.

    A gorgeous card, and a very nice piece of photographic history. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    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!

    Born Vilma Koncsics (1901-1991) Miss Banky was the daughter of a highly placed government official in Emperor Franz Joseph's Austro-Hungary.
    Growing up in Budapest, she was fascinated by film from a young age, and won a part in a film at age 19.

    In 1925, Samuel Goldwyn visited Budapest, and signed her to a contract. Her family, and her fiancee were already unhappy with the idea of her being an actress, but she ignored all of their wishes, and ran off (hardly running off, really, she was 24 years old :) to Hollywood, where she was called the Hungarian Rhapsody, and became a tremendous success.
    She was leading lady to Rudolf Valentino in "The Eagle," and "Son of the Shiek," and made many more films before the talkies reared their head, and her heavy Hungarian accent apparently stood in the way of her continued success.

    She married silent movie star Rod La Rocque (Wait, we know what you're thinking, but that was the name this French-Canadian fellow was actually born with, and no, he never starred in an episode of the Flintstones :) to whom she stayed happily married until his death in 1969.
    Miss Banky sold real estate with her husband, played a lot of golf, and established an educational foundation. Sounds like a relatively uneventful, happy later life. I think we can say that is a very nice thing.
    Almost all of our bio information was drawn from a wonderfully concise article on Wikipedia. Thanks Wikipedia!

    A visit to Youtube will produce numerous clips from her film career, allowing you to see why she was so greatly loved. A very beautiful woman, and a gifted actress. I think, through Youtube, we were able to enjoycomplete copies of both "The Winning of Barbara Worth" (early Gary Cooper too!), and "Son of the Sheik."

    Beautiful atmospheric image. A very nice, unposted card.

    Just so charming. Six young ladies in costume for a theatrical production, and beautifully posed for this RPPC (Real Photo Post Card). RPPCs are postcard images produced from local studio, or even amateur "home," photographer's negatives in extremely limited runs, often for friends or family only. They are, by their very nature, the rarest postcard images of all. Interesting RPPCs are prized by collectors, and also by artists who might make use of such images in their art work, and appreciate that an original print of such an image is often as close to unique as one can practically get.

    R. Guilleminot, Bœspflug et Cie, was not a publisher of postcards, or a photography studio, but rather a company, founded in the 1850s, that manufactured photo print paper and plates. They distributed their print stock and plates internationally. Nord et Pas de Calais is probably where this image was taken. It is the northernmost of the 27 French regions, and shares a border with Belgium.

    A lovely, unposted card circa 1910s. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    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.

    Superb photo of dancer and accompanist, published by the Cairo Postcard Trust, a company founded in 1899 by Joseph Max Lichtenstern (1876-1958). Lichtenstern emigrated to Egypt from Vienna in 1893 during the time when Vienna was a part of the Austro Hungarian Empire. In our continuing research we have found that although he is often credited as a photographer, he is usually mentioned as a publisher, and we can't say that he was the photographer of this image. Further, he apparently sold the company in 1912, and as this card was posted in 1917, though the image might well have been from backstock produced during his tenure, it might just as well have been taken after he had returned, for a time, to Austria.

    Cairo, in the late 19th, early 20th century was a tremendous tourist mecca and soon after his arrival there, the demand for quality picture postcards was huge. The Cairo Postcard Trust published original photographs in a postcard format, rather than postcards as an afterthought, or a sideline, which was sometimes the case with other companies So, as far as we know, this photograph did not appear originally in a larger format, or as a cabinet card, but as a postcard only.

    Herr Lichtenstern was an Austrian Jew, but should not be confused with another person of a similar name and birth date, who often surfaces in research, and was murdered at Theresienstadt by the Nazis during the holocaust. After serving in WWI, our Max Lichtenstern returned to Egypt, where he maintained a home and family (as well as other businesses, though apparently he did not continue with postcard publishing) and passed away there in the late 1950s.

    There is some creasing in the upper right, and lower right, corners of this card, and minor wear to edges and corners. A truly wonderful image!

    Did your knees just go weak? Don't be alarmed. Signorina Menichelli has that effect on many people! One of the most beautifully expressive faces of the Italian cinema, Pina Menichelli, radiates dramatic presence. We are particularly fond of her images, and in general love what these Italian photographers, working with these amazing models, were able to achieve!

    We also love being able to offer you cards of this almost pristine quality, as if you had just stepped off a train in Milan, in 1917, and while waiting for your aunt, who was to meet you at the station but is late in arriving, you stop at a kiosk which sells newspapers, magazines and postcards. This particular image catches your eye, because only last month you admired Pina in one of her films, wearing this oh so modern outfit. As you remember sitting in the dark cinema with your sweetheart, the sights and sounds of the busy railway station disappear....

    Now, for a real treat, follow the link below to this Youtube video of a full length Pina Menichelli film, lots of fun, and with subs in English and a nice musical soundtrack, so that you can better remember that wonderful experience! We recommend a bowl of fresh popcorn and a SanPellegrino Limonata sweetened with two tablespoons of sugar!

    Fantastic RPPC from (we're guessing) the 1920s, of a chorus line of young ladies in what could be toy soldier costumes. Lots of fun! They look awfully polished for an amateur production, but not quite polished enough for a professional one, don't you think? Nevertheless, this undoubtedly rare, and quite possibly one of a kind image, no doubt represented a very important memory in the hearts of more than one of these girls.

    The upper left corner of this card shows some visible damage. The other three show some wear, all within the frame and outside the image. Otherwise a great vintage RPPC!

Have fun!

    Brigitte Helm was, of course, the star of the 1927 spectacular "Metropolis," and with that feather in her cap, she was offered starring roles pretty much from then on, but almost always cast in the role of the cold-blooded Femme Fatale. She was actually the first choice for the lead in "The Blue Angel," but for whatever reason Marlene got that plum role.

    Wonderful high contrast image, with hazy glow. Very dramatic!

    Very nice unposted condition, with only minor wear to corners. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Lovely Lorelei image! Beautifully hand-tinted. Pure fantasy, and yes, we love it :)

    Many people familiar with the name might think of Lorelei as just another name for a Siren of the kind Ulysses braved at sea, but Lorelei's story is actually specific to one geographic location, a huge outcropping of rock (also called Lorelei, or Loreley) on the Rhine river in Germany.

    The river is narrow at this spot apparently, and the currents swift, with rocks hidden just beneath the water's surface that present a danger to the keels of ships. Also present is an echo effect, hence the name Loreley, which is said to translate as "Murmuring Rock."

    Some text at the base of another Lorelei card we sold not long ago:

    "Und singt ein Lied dabei;
    Das hat eine wundersame,
    Gewaltige Melodei."

    (And sings a song, also,
    That has a wondrous,
    Overpowering melody.)

    is from the poem "Lorelei" by Heinrich Heine, a greatly beloved 19th century German poet. According to the Wikipedia article, it was Heine's poem, drawn from an earlier work by Clemens Brentano, that immortalized this character, and not, as is widely believed, that her tale comes from old folk legend. Well, that is for the scholars to debate. We're pleased to imagine her just as she is pictured here :)

    A wonderful card in very nice unposted condition.

    We've found no history on this performer. What a beautiful image. Note the rubber stamped text at the bottom of the card. This indicates that the artiste was just breaking into the theater business, and this card, though so very professionally produced, was probably sent off to booking agents and theater managers, rather than being offered to the public alongside cards of already established artistes.

    One of our favorite, and most magical, subgenres of "Lovely Lady" postcards has to be that of the marvelous maenad. These are somewhat idealized, and presumably toned down, versions of those wild maidens of ancient Greece, who in their worship of Dionysus, the god of wine and sensual abandon, got up to all kinds of mischief. The maenad, as an image, was practically the poster girl of La Belle Epoque, expressing that rich, earthy, "joie de vivre," which has come to be seen as so expressive of that era. In our Marvelous Maenad section, we're not all that particular about whether the model is depicted as a woodland sprite, a pagan priestess, or if they're just a couple of Belle Epoque chorus girls unwinding after a tough dress rehearsal. The images we list in this section might have been published anytime between the 1890s and the 1930s. Basically, if they're wearing grapes, grapevines, animal skins, or any of the other accoutrements no self respecting maenad could do without, this is the section they'll end up in. Welcome to the Bacchanal!!! :)

    Lovely image of stretching Maenad, posted in Belgium, 1903. Very nice, posted card.

    Beautiful image of Casino de Paris performer Mlle. Juanita in embroidered ribbon cap by (Cliché) Oricelly, circa 1905. She positively glows! Monsieur Oricelly made truly remarkable use of the sepia tone.

    Wonderful condition.

    Really great flapper image by Fotocelere, one of our favorite Italian printer/publishers, based in Turin, Italy. Like a number of the larger publishers, Fotocelere had satellites outside their country of origin, this lovely card having been printed in France.

    After WWI, whose dark clouds had rained all over the picture postcard's "golden era," the postcard never quite regained the mass popularity it had enjoyed prior to 1914. It was still an important means of communication of course, though the practice of mailing off a card to a friend across town on Wednesday, to invite them over for lunch on Friday, was rapidly being supplanted by that new-fangled machine, the telephone.

    The monochrome tinted card was cheaper to produce than those labor intensive, hand-colored postcards, keeping production costs down, and their bright, solid, colors were eye-catching and oh-so-modern! Postcards like this one were all the rage in the 20s and early 30s, and yes, we still love 'em :)

    Nice unposted condition on this one, though with some soft, rounding at the corners. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    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.

    The brothers Neurdein, Etienne and Louis, had a studio in Paris from 1863 until just before the outbreak of WWI. So though pre-dating it by a few years, their careers pretty much spanned the whole of La Belle Epoque. Etienne Neurdein stayed primarily in Paris, producing local projects, portraits in the studio, and photographing art entries at the Salon de Paris from which many lovely postcards were produced, while his brother Louis traveled widely, spending much of his time in Algeria.

    It is probably Louis' work for whom the Neurdein brothers are best remembered today, particularly a series of images of a young Kabyle woman of Algeria, examples of which find their way into our shop now and then. Link below:

    We are guessing though, that this listing's card (one out of a very popular series, Silhouettes Parisiennes) was produced by Etienne Neurdein. Great 1910s fashion reference!
