    Rough shape on this Bulgarian RPPC circa 1910, so why do we even want a card with these faults in our shop? We just couldn't resist. How often do we get to see an early photo of a rose distillery? Amazing! An area known as the Valley of Roses in Bulgaria is still where a very large percentage of the world's rose oil comes from. We think we've priced this rarity within reason and hope you enjoy the image!
    Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Beautiful Image of a seated young woman in classical attire, the sort often worn by young dancers of the period. Lovely tinting and atmosphere in this image published by one of our favorite French publishers, A. Noyer. Printed toward the very end of that glorious period known in France as la Belle Epoque, an era the Great War, beginning in 1914, is said to have brought to a close.

    Be certain to view our second listing image which shows the fairly extensive chipping around the outer edge of this card, hence the bargain price! When shopping for postcards online, it's a very good idea to find dealers who offer scans showing the edges and corners of their cards. Most do. Otherwise, it's a bit of a gamble. A truly lovely card despite its minor faults.

    Lovely posted condition on this vintage card by Georg Gerlach.
    We don't find much history on Mlle. Berané, but in the same year this card was posted, the image appeared in "The Sketch" a theater and arts magazine, with the tidbit that the crucifix our artiste wore in this portrait once belonged to none other than Marie Antoinette! Those gals and their jewelry, I mean, really! :)

    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!

    Amazing RPPC of Carnaval revelers in costume. This is an early one, posted in 1905. Having your picture taken was serious business, you notice these folks aren't exactly smiling, and the image itself though magnificent in its detail, feels just a little menacing! We really love this one :)

    Not certain what "Port Arthur" (see the sign on the wall behind the revelers and the decorative script on the card's obverse) has to do with Frankfurt, Germany. We looked and looked, but found no reference to a "Port Arthur" associated with that city. It could very well be that some name change occurred during the intervening years, particularly considering the two world wars which were yet to come.

    A fantastic card! Some creasing on the left side corners.

    "Arrgh...Oh, God yes, that's just the spot! Six hours hunched in front of that monitor...Frank, you are a lifesaver!"

    Great promotional RPPC for Ly and Jolly, a cabaret act from back in 1920s Germany, offering (as their violet inked stamp on the card's obverse advertizes) Eccentric, acrobatic, danceplay and parody. No history on this duo. Great image though :)

    We have the impression that the term eccentric when applied to a dance act meant something like what we call improvisational these days. If you know more, please let us know!

    Cards like this one were printed to offer to an appreciative audience as souvenirs, often with the players and the venue both taking a cut of the sales, or stamped as we see here, and mailed off to agents and promoters all along the vaudeville circuit, sometimes internationally. When times were tough? Sure, they probably played weddings, too :)

    "Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome..."

    We recently came across a number of great vintage German musical theater postcards and thought we'd put them in what will probably be a temporary section under the heading "Cabaret," or, auf Deutch, Kabarett! Most of the cards in this section will concern theatrical entertainment in the 1920s Weimar era of post world war one Germany, though we may place a number of Austrian cards of the period and a few film star cards from that time and place into this section as well.

    The Weimar era, particularly in Berlin, fascinates us at least in part because of its dramatic contrasts, the tinsel glitter that could not entirely disguise an ever deepening gloom, the festive mood that seemed to so many who witnessed it as if driven by misery rather than a celebration of life as had seemed the Parisian nightlife of the previous decade. In hindsight, some compared the cabaret life of Weimar Berlin to dancing at the edge of a sheer cliff, and perhaps a little of that frenzied energy clings to these images of actors and dancers.

    Just for fun, if it's been a while since you've seen it, you might enjoy a little mood music...the very memorable opening of the classic 1972 film version of "Cabaret." Youtube link below:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBlB8RAJEEc

    Dressing room image of stage and film actress Maria Orsca (1893-1930), a popular denizen of the Weimar Berlin arts scene. She played the part of Lulu, the lead character in the play "Erdgeist" by Frank Wedekind, a prominent and controversial figure in German theater of the Jugendstil Epoche. An author, actor and cabaret performer, he led German theater from the norm of pre-20th century Realism into the unexplored territory of Expressionism.

    Maria Orsca, a Russian actress of Ukrainian Jewish decent, was born Rachel Blindermann, near Odessa, in 1893. She appeared in some silent films, but mostly on the stage, working with some of the most important names of the time, including Max Reinhardt.

    Like Lulu, Maria Orsca was also a tragic figure, losing a lover to suicide in 1926, then her sister Gabryela, also to suicide in '28, and finally she herself, taking her own life in 1930. It has been suggested that morphine addiction, one of the popular vices of the Weimar era, lay at the bottom of much of this misery.

    Thanks to Wikipedia for much of the information in this post!

    Trippy! It would seem the '60s had nothing on the 1900s! A couple of gals costumed in what looks like Algerian Kabyl native dress and doing that Madame Blavatsky thing :)

    We believe the image on this postcard is not a photograph, but an image of a photograph produced on a press.

    The early 1900s was an era of mystical and magickal experimentation, the popularity of which was often reflected in the popular media of the time.
    Here we have one of two wonderful postcards we just received in that were produced probably sometime between 1900 and 1905. The images themselves look very much like the work of one of the big French printers of offset printed images like Charles Collas of Cognac, then reprinted in a fancier format by a German printer like NPG, but unfortunately there is no photographer or publisher attribution on this one. Great fun though!

    Apologies for the unforgivable language geekery that follows in this listing. If you love the image, then just go ahead and buy the card :)

    This is a very special card historically! Printed in the late 1910s, it offers a lively image of a young feminist.

    "Trotzköpfchen" is one of those gorgeously ungainly German combination words, putting together Trotzköpf (literal translation something like, "despite everything-head"), meaning contrary, or defiant, or stubborn, minded, and chen, the German diminutive meaning small or little that often seems to carry with it the implication of cute.

    So we have a young lady who sports the ringlets and big bow at the back that identifies her generally as an unmarried, school-age, if nearly adult woman, while at the same time, she presents herself in her underthings, showing a fair amount of leg, and smoking a cigarette!

    This flies in the face of propriety, hence "contrary-minded," particularly for a schoolgirl, hence the "chen," so we can call her "cute little contrary one." A little presumptuous, maybe?

    She declares, "Ich lasse mich nicht unterkriegen," meaning, I will stand my ground, or, I will not be overcome, or down-trodden (just three of several possible translations into English), a declaration that is, in so many words, ever popular with the disenfranchised who thirst for equality.

    The status of women the world over had undergone great change during World War One and though some lovers, brothers and fathers returning home from the battle may have desired a return to the pre-war status quo, women, who'd kept things going back home, were hesitant to return mildly to the kitchen.

    This image, like other provocative boudoir images of the period, weren't merely appreciated by men in the corner tobacco shop, but by women too. Certainly boudoir images objectify, but for many women of the early 1900s, they also expressed a will to personhood, a will to a physical and cultural equality, that keeping to propriety didn't necessarily offer.

    A great card in so many ways!

    Charming boudoir fantaisie, probably German and circa 1910. Card is in lovely condition, but there is a little light speckling on the model's shoulder. Why is it so many of these models in semi-undress wear their shoes? Joking? A little, but at the same time, we'd love to be able to interview them and the photographers for the answer to that question :)

    German Postcard, very reminiscent of work by Heinrich (Henry) Traut. Great mermaid gown image, beautifully composed, we think! "robe galbée," or "contoured gown" is a term often used in France to describe these outfits, incidentally.
    Beautiful, subtle, hand-coloring on this one and very, very nice condition.

    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 :)

    Alfred Noyer's Aurographies were a collection of delicate, sepia toned, postcards produced in the 1920s, and (we believe) into the 1930s. The subjects were stylish young ladies, sometimes in risque images, sometimes nude, always beautifully photographed. The cards themselves were produced with care, often gilt edged. We came across a number of these recently in fine condition, and are very pleased to share them with you.

    Wonderful hand-coloration on this Japanese card that shares so many beautiful smiles! Posted in 1921, this appears to be a commercially used card, sent by a travel booking agent, to confirm reservations aboard a steam ship bound for...it doesn't say...Japan?

    A very nice posted card. 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. 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. If you purchase two cards, we will refund the postage on the second card, and when you purchase three or more cards from us at the same time, your shipping will be entirely free, except for international orders which, because of increases in international shipping rates will still be charged one card's shipping fees on orders of three or more. We do not charge for insurance or shipping materials, and as of the date of this listing are still charging below our overall cost on shipping.

    "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.

    "Danger! Danger! High Voltage!
    When we touch, When we kiss
    Danger! Danger! High Voltage!
    When we touch, when we kiss

    No history on this Belle Epoque performer, darn it. Great image by Walery of Paris. Lovely hand-coloring work.

    A wonderful card. Minor wear to edges and corners. Please examine our high res scans for detail.
