    Charming photograph! The poses they took really capture a sense of movement. See their audience of two in the window above? :) This photograph just barely misses being the size of a standard postcard out of that period. It's just a touch shorter in length, and a touch wider in the other direction. We'll guess this was taken in the 1930s.

    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!

    Lydia Johnson in a wonderful shimmery, floral, costume. Lydia, (1896-1969) was actually a Russian actress, born Lydia Abramovic, in Rostov. She appeared in silent films in Russia prior to the revolution, but the politics of the new government did not agree with her, so she left the country, eventually settling in Italy. There, she worked mainly on the stage, but continued to appear in films well into the 1950s. She took the name Lydia Johnson as a stage name (Albert Johnson was the name of a dancer she married while still an actress in Russia).
    A very nice, unposted card of one of our favorite faces. Photo by Bododi, published by A. Traldi, of Milan. We always love finding one of A. Traldi's cards. Not only are the images often a delight, but the Art Nouveau/Deco logo design on their card backs are such a treat :)

    Gently hand-tinted portrait (one of our favorites of this artiste) by Leopold Reutlinger.
    Emilienne D'Alencon was a very popular Parisian dancer of la Belle Epoque and also one of "Les Grandes Trois" The Three Great Ones, also affectionately referred to by the people of France at that time as Les Grandes Horizontales, The Grand Horizontals! :) These titles referred to La Belle Otero, Liane de Pougy, and Emilienne D'Alencon, the three most prominent French performers who not only rose to great fame as stage performers at that time, but who also accumulated immense wealth as the mistresses to scions of Industry and members of European royalty. All three rose from very humble backgrounds to rub elbows with the elite of French society, and that feat made them heroes to the people of France who no doubt viewed their brash success as proof of the egalitarian nature of French society, and as expressing the essential nature of "joie de vivre!"
    A truly lovely, unposted card from the very early 1900s.

    Dated 1929 on the obverse, this wonderful unidentified RPPC appears to be of Pola Negri in a fantastic lamé brocade gown, with pearls and a feathered fan as accessories. We know that in 1929 Miss Negri's fortunes failed her. A pet project, "The Woman He Scorned," was a box office flop. The stock market crash of 1929 wiped out most of her personal fortune and according to Sergio Delgado's "Pola Negri: Temptress of Silent Hollywood," she'd put on some unwanted pounds and planned to visit the spas of Baden Baden to take them off, so the location and time appear to fit the history. Also note the careful retouching of this image along her right side (our left), trimming off an inch or so from her figure.

    The card was printed on a "K Ltd." RPPC blank, the UK Kodak paper (Eastman Kodak enjoyed the lion's share of the photo-print paper market at that time and was used extensively, if not exclusively, in Europe as well as in the UK).
    A gorgeous card!

    What we believe is a beautiful and very scarce image of Mlle. Fleuron in costume, wearing a kokoshnik. The color and texture in this image are just gorgeous. The photo was made by Monsieur Oricelly of Paris, a well known celebrity photographer (His name is hard to see, lower right quadrant). Most portraits we find of Meaty Fleuron were taken by Oricelly.
    This card was published by NPG (Neue Photographische Gesellschaft) of Berlin, and utilized the very effective Oranotype printing method. Though we haven't been able to learn a lot about the oranotype in its particulars, we can tell you that although most of these we've seen were color tinted images, it was not used for color exclusively. Also, all the oranotypes we've found thus far, share in common a high gloss image surface (which doesn't really show up well on our scanner), lovely, certainly, but like any glossy surface, the least little crimp or scratch stands out. In this case, the surface is beautiful and we consider this to be one of the finest examples of an oranotype we've found.
    So that was the way of it, in those days, a French performer, a French photographer, and although there were certainly plenty of printers in France, even if editions of this card may have been printed in Paris as well, NPG of Berlin produced this wonderful high quality card. Germany definitely dominated the picture postcard industry prior to WWI.
    A wonderful card.

    So precious! Some of the nicest "faux" angel wings we've seen in a postcard image and what an expression!
    B.N.K. (Berlin-Neuroder Kunstanstalten) opened its doors in 1888 and grew into quite a large postcard printing firm during the golden era of the picture postcard (1904-1914). They seem to have weathered two world wars and as far as we can tell, remain in some form of business today, or are at least listed in the S and P index.
    Minor surface wear, but overall, quite nice unposted condition. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Darling image! What a costume :) Stage performer Bonita Berol is not someone about whom we've found any history, but the very fact that her name is commercially printed on this card suggests she was a professional. Less established theatrical acts often had their name hand-written on the photo-negative by the studio in short run printings of promotional RPPCs. Just guessing, we think European card, a lot like many we see from Italy, and late 1920s. Probably quite rare, one you're unlikely to see again, and so charming!

    Very nice unposted condition. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Do you love this? I have to say we do. This image was published in the city of Breslau, in what was soon to be the Weimar Republic of Germany at the time, though today it is a city in Poland. Breslau was the sixth largest city in the Germany of the mid 1910s. That's about the best we can do, I'm afraid. "Bender" was some kind of a theatrical review. It looks like an awful lot of fun. The title, "Es Tut Sich Was" translates pretty much as, "It's what's happening!" with almost the contextual feeling of what in the sixties was called a "happening." And that's groovy, Baby!
    Okay, sorry, but put us in a room with a cute couple all dressed up in cat suits, and we get silly. I don't know why, we just do. That's love, I guess. Wonderful image. Very nice card.

    So many ruffles!!! Lovely photograph by Georg Gerlach of Berlin. Very nice condition on this gorgeous card.

    Australian born Clarissa Campbell was a tremendously popular dancer in the 1890s and well into the 1910s.

    For a very detailed and fascinating bio, follow the below link:

    http://www.hat-archive.com/Saharet.htm

    We love Saharet. She is certainly one of the most interesting looking dancers of the era we think, and her history is such a lively one!

    There are many, many, postcard images to be found of this lovely performer, as well as music hall posters, silent film posters, gorgeous paintings, and even an extant clip from a short film in which she dances the bolero! That film was directed in 1905 by a woman named Alice Guy, who may have been, according to the good people at IMDB, the first woman film director! You can easily access this clip from one of our blog posts. Link below:

    http://redpoulaine.blogspot.com/2012/09/saharet-india-rubber-lady.html

    We are always on the lookout for nice images of Saharet. Her high kicks out from under countless layers of ruffled skirt and her dark curls drawn up in her trademark chignon, framing her bright and vivacious features, make her images some of the most enjoyable we run across. Yes, we are definitely huge fans :)

    A very nice card. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Lise Fleuron was born Marguerite Rauscher on December 1st, 1874. Her father was an Alsatian who, following the Prussian annexation of the Alsace-Lorraine region in the early 1870s, chose French nationality, hence her very "German" name, Rauscher.

    She was a popular cafe-concert/music hall performer in the late 1890s and into the 1900s. Her sister Meaty, or sometimes Miati, was likewise the toast of Paris for some time. Both sisters were particularly well known for their plunging necklines, apparently were the constant targets of gossip, which of course only bolstered their careers :)

    So, from Rauscher to Fleuron (meaning "jewel," and why? Perhaps Monsieur Georges Ohnet, a popular nevelist in the 1880s, may have had something to do with it. In 1884 he wrote a novel titled, "Lise Fleuron," the tale of a young girl...her fall from innocence...her gradual climb to success in the theaters of Paris...romance, scandal, and according to at least one British reviewer, an utter lack of morality (which might be why it quickly sold through more than 100 editions!). When attempting to research Mlle. Fleuron and her sister Meaty, we run across page after page of references to this novel.
    Would it be so surprising to learn that a young actress adopted the name of a very famous fictional siren of the stage? Maybe not so much :) She would have enjoyed immediate "brand recognition," at the very least.

    Mlle. Fleuron passed away in Enghien, on the 27th of February, 1960.

    A really wonderful portrait of this important Belle Epoque performer by Professor Stebbing of Paris, published by Rotophot of Berlin, and posted in Germany.

    Such a charming image! Sisters, possibly, or two close friends. No beaded bandeaus, sultry eyes, or long strands of beads for these two young women, who in 1921, were not yet rushing to join that throng of junior "jazz baby" flappers. This was probably a relief to their parents :) Instead, by their classical attire, they appear to have been following that celestial path opened by Isadora Duncan, or possibly Loie Fuller, whose "Fullerettes" were often photographed similarly garbed for gently choreographed cavorting about in beautifully imagined Elysian fields.

    The photographer, Krueger Art Studio, was located in Cleveland Ohio. We searched a high school yearbook from 1921 on the (very) off chance we could research these two, but to no avail.

    We also artificially darkened our fifth listing scan so you could more easily make out the girls' names, Mildred and Dorothy, and the year, 1921, written on the back of the photo. *Please note the remnants of album paper and glue at the four corners.*

    You might have noticed a light horizontal line in our second scan, near the top edge of the photograph. This is actually the light reflecting off an impressed edge that borders the photograph and the light reflection doesn't exist in a face to face examination. The impressed border is a bit odd, and hard to make out in our scans, but is similar to a press impression on an etching. We really can't say if the studio did this intentionally, or if perhaps years in a tight frame did. The album remnants argue against the framing idea, though.
    Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    The photograph measures 6 and 1/2 by 4 and 1/2 inches. Though many of our customers have framed some of their postcards to great affect, it's amazing how much more "frameable" that extra inch in length and width make a photo. We'll ship this at the same cost, in the same secure photo mailer, and under the same terms as we ship our postcards.

    One of our favorite and most magical subgenres of "Lovely Lady" postcards has to be that of the marvelous maenad. Idealized and presumably toned down versions of those wild maidens of ancient Greece, 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 representative of the era.

    Great Art Nouveau image of stage performer Myriel in classical attire with cymbals. Produced by Leopold Reutlinger of Paris, circa 1905, this image was also used as one in a series specifically representing celebrants of the Bacchanal! In that series, the same card, rather than bearing the title Myriel, was titled Bacchante Aux Cymbales! There was another cymbal image in that series as well, in which a different artiste named Beauregard was posed similarly. Additionally, there was another image of Mlle. Beauregard in which she upended a ewer, presumably filled with wine, titled Bacchante Buvant, which simply means "drinking," and yet another titled Bacchante Au Thyrse, in which the Bacchante (also the artiste Myriel in that one) holds up with reverence the "Thyrse," which beyond its modern botanical meaning, is French for the Greek thyrsus, a ceremonial staff topped with a pine cone, often decorated with ivy, and carried by Bacchus (Ivy incidentally, was according to the late English poet and historian Robert Graves, one of the key ingredients used in brews by those wild celebrants to drive them to a frenzy. Let's definitely NOT try this at home ;).

    Our fourth listing image (NOT for sale!) is a crop of an interestingly surreal and risque French postcard in our personal collection, showing a larger print (also a slightly different crop) of this Reutlinger photograph being used as fanciful decoration in another studio's set piece! What fun, but this also reminds us that some of these Belle Epoque postcard images were not only popular in postcard form, but as "parlor" art prints of the period!

    Some wear to edges and corners, but a lovely card! Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Absolutely lovely photo lithograph! Because of the overall style and appearance of this postcard and its image we're guessing it was printed in the 1890s, but because it is blank backed and lacking any identifying marks, we can't go beyond a guess in determining age or origin. We would also guess that the photograph from which this postcard was made was probably taken before the 1890s, the postcard printed later.

    Wonderful unposted condition. Note the pressure marks at the corners caused by album storage. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Beautiful portrait of the two talented Gish sisters. Dorothy is not as well known today as Lilian, though in their heyday, the two sisters were both huge stars of the silver screen. They got their start through a close friend from childhood, Mary Pickford, who introduced them to D.W. Griffith.
    If you'd like to see the two of them together, follow the Youtube link below and enjoy a grand romance of the French Revolution, "Orphans of the Storm," 1921. Lots of fun :)
