    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!

    "Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
    Searching my reaches for what she really is."

    --Sylvia Plath, "Mirror"

    Sylvia Plath's "Mirror" isn't really a very cheery poem, it's true, but provides a nice counterpoint to our very cute French postcard :)

    This model was a popular one in the '20s, appearing frequently on glamor cards published by A. Noyer of Paris. She seems to have chosen to keep her long golden tresses when an awful lot of women were embracing the bob. It works :)

    Fi-ve Oda-lisques...
    Four calling birds,
    Three French hens,
    Two turtle doves...

    and it's not even Christmas yet :)

    Historically, the odalisque (from the Turkish Odalik) was a chambermaid in the sultan's harem, actually the lowest rank in the social pecking order according to Wikipedia, and so not a concubine or consort and actually never having anything to do with men whatsoever, but western Europeans built a fantasy around the word (odalisque is a remarkably beautiful word, don't you think?) and promoted the chambermaid to the adored concubine.

    The odalisque lounging on her satin cushions, swathed (or at least semi-swathed) in silk was a very popular theme in European "orientalist" paintings from the 18th century on, and of course inspired the creation of any number of exotic French postcards, works of fiction, poetry, and silent films. Also, acrobatic dance troupes, apparently :)

    A wonderful promotional RPPC, printed in Germany we're guessing in the 1910s.

    Lovely 1920s era French RPPC of dancers in "costume orientale," preparing for a performance on an outdoor stage. Great stuff.

    Fun group image (likely a promotional RPPC) of an unidentified song and dance sextette in bathing beauty attire, published by the Hana Studios of London. Be sure and see the back of this card with its wonderful Art Nouveau decoration! Our fourth listing image is of a close crop of another of Hana Studio's postcard back decorations (Not for sale...not even our card!). This sextette were probably quite well known and popular at the time to be photographed by Mr. Hana, and some of them look very familiar to us but we can't help with identification.

    George Henry Hana (1868-1938) was a photographer specializing in theatrical portraits who became one of the biggest studio photographers in London. Like Mssrs. Reutlinger or Walery in Paris, In London, he was the one you wanted to do your portrait if you were on the stage. Below is a link to a short but very informative biography at a great site, historiccamera.com, if you're interested.

    http://www.historiccamera.com/cgi-bin/librarium2/pm.cgi?action=app_display&app=datasheet&app_id=3179

    Like many photographers of his time, Mr. Hana was also an inventor by necessity. Below is a link to a Google books extract of an article in the British Journal of photography with some details on a small, hand-operated postcard printer that was developed by Mr. Hana. Lots of accompanying illustrations for those of you interested in the process of early photo image postcard printing.

    We do love these garishly colored monochrome tinted cards of the 1920s. Great image we've had in the shop a few times, though never in pink before. This one was published by one of our favorite publishers of glamor and romance cards, Papetery de Levallois-Clichy, or P-C Paris. Very minor wear to edges and corners, and just a touch of spill-over of the pink tint onto the back side, a common production side effect with these monochrome-tinted cards.

    Fun, fantastical postcard image by Heinrich (aka Henry) Traut of Munich, Germany. Clearly the ladies of the Jugendstil Epoche knew very well how to "get down and boogie" :)

    Some wear to edges and corners and a tiny nick along the right-hand edge.

    Ah, basking in the blush of sunset, bathed in the rosy glow of romance :) Lovely Pierrot image published by Fotocelere in Paris. This company's home was in Turin, Italy, but apparently like many of the larger postcard publishers and printers, they established satellites in other countries, in this case, France.

    Following the "Great War" (1914-1918), and by the time the 1920s rolled into view, a little of the gilding had begun to rub off the "Golden Age" of the picture postcard.

    Germany, whose technical and industrial prowess had made it the central hub in the wheel of the picture postcard industry, had lost the war, and consequently some of the major players in that industry had changed.

    Generally, changing patterns in employment, looming economic depression, political upheaval resulting in the toppling of monarchs all over Europe, and technological advances making for a faster moving post-war world, all contributed to a slump in postcard collecting worldwide.

    Whether skilled colorists found better paying work elsewhere, or the struggling industry hired fewer of them (and spent far less on paints and dyes in an effort to cut costs), postcards decorated by the pochoir method (the French stenciling technique that required less time and skill from colorists), and monochrome-tinted images like this one, became much more common. The bright, sometimes garish (don't we just love them :) colors caught the eye of the consumer, and they were much cheaper to produce. Still, these monochrome tints remain some of our very favorite cards, and we always love Pierrot and his friends :)

    A very nice card. Writing on the reverse side and minor wear to edges and corners. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Great image! Beautiful lingerie on this so cute model, and the bedding, wow, love it! Now we know of course this is a studio image with a very nice trompe l'oeil background, but the bed is so narrow! We forget that narrow beds were more the norm, don't we.

    Nice unposted condition on this card. No attributions, but we believe it is German.

    We have no definite history on this lovely performer. There was a Mlle. Graziella Ferrari, an opera singer, who made a bit of a splash on the Parisian music scene just after the turn of the century, but that's all we've found--nothing to necessarily connect this Graziella with that one. Sometimes a very nice photo of a beautiful gal in a very interesting costume just has to be enough :)

    Beautiful RPPC. Dating this one poses a couple of questions. Though most of the people in the image are dressed conservatively after the fashion of the 1910s, the young man driving the croissant delivery-cycle appears to be wearing a fedora, a hat usually associated with the 1920s through 40s. We're less confident in our guessing this image dates to the 1910s than we'd like to be, but the fedora was born, after all, in the play "Fedora," first produced in 1892 and starring Mme. Sarah (the divine) Bernhardt as the Princess Fedora. For the role, in which she played a cross-dresser, she wore a soft felt hat with a pinched brim. So, the fedora was born! First popular among women (particularly suffragettes), and later, among men (first in France, where the play was first performed, and later in America, where the fedora caught on by the 1920s).
    So given that the fedora had been around for 20 years in France by the 1910s, we'll stick with our guess :)

    It would seem this young man delivered croissants fresh from the bakery ovens! (stomach growling :)
    This business baked bread in the French fashion, and also of the foreign variety (see window). Gourmet chocolate, too! Oh my. Is there a better way to begin a lazy morning than with coffee, bread and chocolate?

    An original, probably one-of-a-kind photographic image, more rare, in and of itself, than most diamonds, and at a fraction of the cost! Think of this wonderful piece of history blown up on a bakery's or coffee house's wall, or as a precious gift for someone who loves their bread and chocolate!

    Behind the lovely nude model wrapped in a sheer layer of gauzy fabric, is what we consider a particularly unusual background choice for an Agelou card, evoking something of a classical feel. Almost every one of his images we can recall (so this is an admittedly subjective view) were shot in furnished studio settings that created a very different atmosphere.

    This background contributes beautifully to the image's composition and is automatically reminiscent of so many Art Nouveau inspired postcard and print images that centered the subject of the painting or photo in front of a circular or arched background bordered by a penumbra of complex decorative devices. We hope to discover more Agelou images like this one in the future.

    Jean Agelou is practically notorious for his risque and erotic postcard images. Born in Alexandria Egypt to French parents in 1878, he was active as a photographer in France from at least the early 1900s though most of his work we run across seems to have been produced during the mid to late 1910s.

    He and his brother George produced "legitimate" work as well, and though we've read in a few places that George was not himself the photographer, but only handled the business end of their partnership, we've come across plenty of cards with the identifying logo "G A Paris" (G for George rather than J for Jean) and also a few marked Cliché George Agelou which might suggest that George took a more active role in the actual photography than is sometimes supposed, perhaps even striking out on his own for a time.

    Jean Agelou and his brother George both died in an automobile accident in 1921.

    A spectacular card that does show wear to edges and corners as well as some very minor surface grime. Priced accordingly.

    Emilia Bruzzone, Belle Epoque Performer, Autographed Card, Posted in Argentina, 1904

    The dedication on this card translates as, "Blessed be the music that lets us forget our sorrows." Great fun! Emilia holds aloft a bird's nest, contemplating...well, whatever you'd like her to contemplate :)
    She's wearing a rather daring floral embroidered peek-a-boo top over her sheer mermaid gown, and is generally bedecked with flowers. Gorgeous clarity in this image. Very minor wear to corners.

    She was a star of the stage, and also of silent films, and then the talkies as well, her career spanning some sixty years.

    A beautiful card utilizing that "green screen" technique in a background of glittery gold that causes the image of Mlle. Robinne to really "pop."

    While searching for old postcards of girls and their dolls, we found a number of cards like this one, showing images of WWI era soldiers having their picture taken with a doll. If we'd found just the one, it wouldn't have seemed that remarkable, but finding several in a general search definitely piqued our interest.

    In this image, three soldiers from different outfits are enjoying a little time away from their duties. Why the doll? Well, on a card we listed previously, there was a communication on the back of the card, in which another soldier with doll wrote to his girl back home, saying he hoped it was okay that he'd met someone with the same lovely figure and face to spend time with, haha. Follow below link to see that listing:

    As with so many RPPCs, this card may be the only surviving example of this image. Historically fascinating and true rarity. Very nice unposted condition.

    What a saucy gal! :)
    Sorry, no information on the publisher, photographer or model on this one. Just a classic risque image, likely from the 1910s.
