    Really beautiful image of two young ladies in classical costume. Artwork to us, looks in the style of Raimund Wichera. Beautiful coloration and detail. This card was printed before 1906 (lacking the vertical dividing line on its obverse), we're guessing around 1904.
    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 not charge for 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 shipping materials, and as of the date of this listing are still charging below our overall cost on shipping.

    Tito Corbella (1885-1966) has to be one of our favorite Italian illustrators of glamor and couples romance postcards. One reason for this, is that he designed a large number of cards after famous Italian silent screen actresses, like Pina Menichelli, Francesca Bertini and Lyda Borelli, and if you visit our shop often, you know how fond we are of these ladies.

    According to the folks at European Filmstar Postcards, he also often used his wife as a model. For more history on this wonderful artist and several fine examples of his work, follow the link below to their website. It is a site we visit often when researching our cards.

    http://filmstarpostcards.blogspot.com/2013/07/painted-by-tito-corbella.html

    This is one out of a series of six (we believe) card images he created highlighting that oh-so popular headdress of the mid 1910s and '20s, the turban.

    French clothing designer Paul Poiret was not fond of big, broad-brimmed hats for ladies, and certainly inspired by the "costumes orientale" legacy of French colonialism in North Africa, his elegant haremesque designs crowned by the ubiquitous plumed turban pretty much spelled the end of the Merry Widow hat and ushered in what we think of today as "flapper" fashion.

    For a really nice bio-article on Monsieur Poiret, follow the link below.

    Douglas Fairbanks, 1883-1939, was a star of stars, actor, director, producer, founding member of United Artists, founding member and first president of the Motion Picture Academy, he and his wife Mary Pickford (America's Sweetheart), were the first to leave prints in the concrete out in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater. His bio is so full of firsts, of credits, that we're not even going to attempt a written arrangement of them. Visit Wikipedia for more, link below:

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

    A second link we'll offer you is to one of Fairbank's most popular films, "The Thief of Baghdad," directed by the great Raoul Walsh in 1924. This film is a delight. Marvelous print and with a soundtrack adapted, at least in part, from Rimsky-Korsakoff's Scheherazade, how could you go wrong?

    We love the print quality on the film star postcards that were produced by Cinemagazine of Paris. Top Quality! Le Pirat Noir! Yo Ho!!!

Free to watch on Youtube, this film is a delight. Marvelous print and with a soundtrack adapted, at least in part, from Rimsky-Korsakoff's Scheherazade, how could you go wrong?

    Dance with Death, by Charles Collas et Cie, Cognac, circa 1905.
    We believe this is a press print rather than a photograph.
    Charles Collas (1866-1947) began as a printer, primarily of labels apparently, in Cognac, but in the mid 1890s began producing postcards and played an important role in in the history of French postcards.
    This wonderfully surreal card has some paper on the reverse side peeled away, having been carelessly removed from an album, but not to the degree that is has any effect on the integrity of the card.

    Embroidered corset, striped woolen stockings, lacy under-drawers and lots of ribbons and bows. This is quite the image! I We believe what we have here is an image of a genuine fancy woman :) It appears to be an RPPC shot in a garden setting. Our fashion historians will love this one, but we'll file it under risque.
    If you look closely, you'll see two rounded depressions at the top and bottom of the image. These were caused by the glue holding the photo in an album or on some other surface, probably shinkage of the glue of a century or so.

    Love this image. Marguerite Brésil is one of our favorites. Born in 1880, she made her first appearance on the stage of the Theatre Gymnase in Paris, in 1899, and within a few years was a tremendous star.

    This portrait was made by Leopold Reutlinger of Paris, the card printed by NPG (Neue Photographische Gesellschaft) of Berlin.

    Monsieur Reutlinger had a long standing arrangement with NPG, one of the highest quality printing and publishing houses of postcards at that time (early 1900s), where many of his Parisian photos were printed for commercial distribution.

    Risque Jean Agelou image of Eve and the Snake, circa 1910s. Love the snake!!!

    Jean Agelou is practically notorious for his risque and erotic postcard images of the early 1900s. Born in Alexandria Egypt to French parents in 1878, he was active as a photographer in France from at least the early 1900s. He is best known today for his risque and erotic "french postcards."

    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 than is sometimes supposed, even striking out on his own for a time.

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

    Lovely card with some minor bend/crease issues along left edge, upper quadrant. Barely noticeable, but, sigh...there it is.. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    This postcard was a tourist souvenir published by R. Gabler of Interlaken, Switzerland. Gabler is credited as photographer on the card's obverse. The original painting was probably displayed somewhere in Interlaken but we have no history on it.

    The Jungfrau is one of three important peaks in the Bernese alps, loved by climbers. Jungfrau translates as "Maiden," and Wikipedia suggests the peak may have originally been named for the nuns (hence "maiden") of the local Interlaken monastery, as the land was originally owned by the monastery.

    The Wikipedia article also mentions that in the 19th Century, the peak was romanticized as a goddess, hence our image.

    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 diva's 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 could melt a heart, or break it in two. Have fun!

    Great close up of this lovely actress! Billie Dove joined Ziegfeld's Follies while yet a teenager, and went on to a successful career in Hollywood as an actress in the silents. She is best known for her part in "The Black Pirate" opposite Douglas Fairbanks.

    Beautifully hand-tinted German card, that we think is an unattributed Heinrich Traut image, circa 1905. We have seen a number of other cards from this series in the past, and are pretty certain one of them was a signed "Traut" image. This is a particularly nice one. Notice that the strap on her mermaid gown was created by pinning onto the garment, doubled over strands of pearls, and seed pearls. What fun!

    Who is "La Belle Waléry?" 'tis a mystery! We've seen other images of this beautiful stage performer, but can't find out anything about her. She certainly has the appearance of a Spanish dancer, but who knows! Of course, the name throws us. Was she related to the famous photographer Stanisław Julian Ignacy, Count Ostroróg (1863-1935) who used the name Waléry as a pseudonym (among others) in his work, just as his father did before him? If you have any history on her, please share!

    Meyrianne simply could not bear the thought of being separated from her faux Grecian column! She'd named it Guillermo, and carried it with her everywhere. Guillermo had wonderful lines. Guillermo was strong and silent. He was also a great listener, and well, we all need someone to lean on...

    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" :)

    Wonderful publicity RPPC of Isa Crossella, a German cabaret performer of the Weimar era (we're guessing. This card looks late 1910s--early '20s to us).

    Isa Crossella appears to have been a female impersonator (certainly the stage name supports the theory too :)
    Unfortunately we haven't found any history on this artiste.
    H.F. Gross of Harburg (formerly the capital of Prussian Hanover, now a district in greater Hamburg, Germany) was either the photographer or a theatrical agent.

    In either case, great fun! Old, original images of female impersonators, particularly the less well known ones, are quite rare! Note that this card was not perfectly trimmed. People back then looked to the future as a time when machines would turn out perfectly produced items, and today some of us sigh and look at the past, when human hands maintained a level of originality in the marketplace. Perhaps there is no perfect time or place, but at least there are a few moments that seem to come close :)
