    Provocative and so cute!! Dirce Marella (1897-1996) was a very popular star of the Italian operetta in the 1910s, '20s, and into the '30s as well.

    Norma Shearer (1902-1983) Was raised in Canada before traveling with her stage-mother mom (though very willingly, mom was a big support) to New York City, hoping to break into motion pictures.

    She never really had it easy. Flo' Ziegfeld called her a dog, D.W. Griffith said she'd never make it and reading her bio on Wikipedia gives one the idea she made it primarily on guts and elbow grease, but no one can contest her talent. A fine actress, Miss Shearer became one of MGM's biggest stars. Her bio (link below) makes for some very interesting reading. Like us, you'll probably find yourself involved in her drama and rooting for her, cheering her successes.

    Remarkably good condition on this vintage Ross Verlag/Ballerini and Fratini card!

    Always an "upstream" swimmer, here we find Miss Shearer once again fighting the tough fight as she tries hiding in "front" of a wonderful Art Deco changing screen during a playful game of hide and seek, rather than behind it, as most would prefer doing.

    Donnina with Furry Friend 1, Italian Postcard, circa 1920s by Fotocelere

    We love the Italian publisher and printer, Fotocelere of Torino. They were originally established in the 1910s and in addition to postcard production also produced silent films, though we're under the impression that this was a fairly limited experiment.

    The company also opened a satellite in Paris, printing postcards marked on the obverse, "Made in France," and we're not certain, sometimes, whether an image originated in Italy or France, since some of the models, like this one, seemed to make regular appearances on postcards produced by French companies as well.

    This is one of several "Woman with Pet" images by Fotocelere we recently received into the shop. Postcards featuring pets are always a popular item and we hope you enjoy this one!

    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! :)

    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.

    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 (in so many words) 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:

    Perhaps this was just a popular tease at the time. We're still researching it, but it certainly makes for an interesting image.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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 :)

    Mireille is one of our very favorite French postcard models. She certainly sizzles in this classic pin-up image with a haremesque feel to it of the kind so very popular in that period. Lovely clarity in this card! Very nice condition with minor corner and edge wear.

    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 :)

    We have never seen an example of La Cavalieri's signature on a postcard before. We DO NOT believe this to be an actual autograph, though it may well be her signature, reproduced, which in and of itself makes this an unusual card. Though some artistes of the period made frequent use of reproduced signatures on their postcards (De Merode, and Otero, for example), this one is a first for us. But we have not run across this particular image before, either. From her costume, we think it is one from a Reutlinger series often associated with an appearance of hers in St. Petersburg, but the publisher of this image may be Italian, and they may have purchased the rights to this image from Reutlinger, resulting in its being less common.

    Naturally, when we first saw a scan of this card before purchasing it for the shop, we were hoping we had found an autographed Cavalieri image! It's tough to judge from a scan. Why don't we think this is a real autograph? If the card is held in the proper light, the silvering is evident on the surface of the card floating "over" the signature. We are, by no means, experts, but many of you probably know that the lovely glow we call "silvering," is a chemical reaction that occurs over time in which the light sensitive metallic salts that were originally held in place on the surface of the photo print paper by a gelatinous compound, gradually migrate to the surface of the photographic print. Although there were many such metallic salts used in photography (still are), bromide of silver was one commonly used, hence the term "silvering."

    It seems very unlikely to us that an actual ink signature would show even silvering over its surface without any difference in surface appearance between it, and the print upon which the signature was written, because the ink from a pen, would have covered the print's surface, not allowing the salts to migrate upwards. Make sense?

    In our listing images, though *not for sale*, is a scan of what seems to be a DVD case that offers us another reproduction of her signature. Closely examined, they are not identical, but are close enough to let us believe that this was, for a time at least (signatures change over the years, of course), a signature she used.

    A wonderful card (relatively rare, from our limited perspective), with some wear to corners. Please examine our high res scans for detail.
