    One out of a wonderful series of images published by Alfred Noyer. This was a very popular series of cards that were photographed by J. Mandel, though there is no photographer attribution on this one. Minor wear to edges and corners and a tiny crease in upper right corner.

    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.

    Produced in the early 1900s, this is a photo-lithograph that was charmingly hand-colored of two semi-nude young women in classical (often called "costumes Grecques") attire. The classical design painted behind them along the trompe l'oeil also helps set the mood and period.

    It's not that often that we bring photolithographs into the shop because the quality of the print is sometimes lacking, but in the case of some we find, and definitely in this case, the medium of ink on paper adds to the image rather than detracting from it. The fine stippling of ink (what I suppose we'd call a dot matrix today) lends a misty, magical, quality to the image that a photograph would not achieve in quite the same way. Anyhow...we love it :)

    There is unfortunately no photographer or publisher attribution on this one. We don't recognize the models, so this card remains a mystery. Hope you enjoy it.

    No one knows for certain these days, which of those two famous American humorists it was, Mark Twain or Will Rogers, who encouraged the public to "Buy land! They're not making any more of it!" But the same idea could certainly apply to antique postcards, particularly in the case of a hand-colored French nude like this one.

    Our scanner cannot even approach the richness of color on these cards when they are viewed in person. These are becoming more and more difficult to find, but we recently located a small cache of them we are very pleased to share with you. This one, as you can see, is in nearly pristine condition.

    Lovely dreamlike, evocative nude. The sheer veil is a great effect...how'd they do that? In our closest crop, we can see that she is smiling, seemingly reaching out, so running towards, rather than away. Very nice Art Nouveau decorative frame surrounding the photograph.

    This card was produced by S.I.P. (Societé Industrielle de Photographie), one of the largest, if not the largest, postcard publishers in France at the turn of the century. No indication as to the model's identity, or her photographer's either.

    Corners a bit rounded, minor crease in upper left corner, but overall, a real gem that offers a wonderful example of Art Nouveau decorative print work, and early French risque photo-imagery. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    "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.

    Fräulein Übermut, this card's title, translates into English as "Cheeky Girl," or "Bold Young Lady." Our very cute model is attired as a school-age girl, that perennial costume of innocence, and yet she lounges on...horrors...a bearskin rug, the vintage postcard code for sensual abandon! A bit racy? Yes, but realistically, at the time this postcard was produced it's safe to say that almost every young female star of silent film wore the schoolgirl uniform in any number of popular roles. They discovered hidden treasures, uncovered spy rings and foiled kidnappers while capturing the hearts of their romantic male leads. The costume signaled innocence and purity, yes, but usually the characters were not so young that a kiss or caress was inappropriate, so let her flirt a little :)

    This card was printed by Rotophot of Berlin. Note the logo on the lower left. See the horse? The word for horse in German is "Ross" and the guy in charge of Rotophot in the early 1910s was none other than Heinrich Ross, who in the late 1910s would create Ross Verlag, the company responsible for probably more "film star" postcards during the 1910s thru '30s than any other. He was hugely successful into the early '30s before Hitler came into power. Heinrich Ross escaped the Nazis with his life, barely, but not with his fortune. In the 1940s he was employed in a machine shop in Chicago illinois. He passed away in Chicago, in 1957, at the age of 86. His death certificate listed his occupation as printer. (Thanks to rosspostcards.com. for some of our listing's history. A great site!!!)

    A lovely, funny card, in wonderful unposted condition.

    A rare find! Wonderful promotional RPPC by Photo Haas of Hamburg of the Prinzess Ballet, a Weimar era, German song and dance troupe. We really love this :) This card wound up in the files of Dante Ospiri the impressario (the guy what puts the show together :) Notice the text on the back side: "Manager de Grock." Was he a stranger in a strange land? Possibly, but in this case (and spelling) Grock was the stage name of Charles Wettach, one of the most famous clowns of the 20th century and for a time the highest paid stage performer in the world!

    So the impressario Dante Ospiri was this clown's manager. Nice gig! How did he get this job? Might have had something to do with Grock's second wife, singer Inès Della Casa, who, before she became Inez Wettach, was actually Inez Ospiri, maybe Dante's sister? That's showbiz, keeping it in the family :)

    Grock had the good fortune, in the early 1930s, of having a powerful world leader as a big, big fan. This did wonders for his career! This world leader saw him in Berlin, and came back to see his act not once, but thirteen times! The downside (isn't there always?) was that this world leader was named Adolf Hitler, an association Grock (though Swiss and apparently apolitical himself) had a difficult time living down after the war.

    Of course none of this has a thing to do with the so charming Prinzess Ballet, about whom we know nothing at all, but it does show how a postcard is an incredible time machine...a window into a time and place. It might give you no more than a thread, but take up the thread, follow it, and you may discover an historical perspective that few other mediums offer! We do so love them :)

    Wonderful, unusual item from Weimar era Berlin. This is a very high quality offset press print produced by Eros Bildarchiv of Berlin in what we'd guess were the 1920s. We're pretty certain Number 4 Hessische Strasse is located in what later became East Berlin following WWII, before the Wall was brought down in 1990.

    We can't find any history on the publisher, Eros Bildarchiv.

    This is NOT a postcard. Though printed on card stock of similar weight to a typical vintage postcard, this print is a bit wider, and a bit shorter, than the average vintage postcard, about 3 and 3/4 by 4 and 1/4 inches. A great artifact!

    We do specialize in fantasy, here at Red Poulaine. It's true! Theatrical fantasy, even, and sometimes, perhaps, a little phantasy too, though seldom. Every now and then, though, we need to ground ourselves a bit with a few RPPCs (Real Photo Post Cards), in order to get a glimpse of what life offstage was like.

    After all, if you ever find the absolutely right pair of silver slippers, and tapping them together three times, saying, "There's no place like Belle Epoque Paris, there's no place like Belle Epoque Paris, there's no..." and Poof! you arrive there, you had better have an idea of what it was like, non? Here's an RPPC from France, picturing real people, who worked, or patronized businesses in those bygone times.

    Great image of a working class hotel/restaurant in Belle Epoque France. Advertised in the window are wines, daily special menu, and rooms to let. Probably relatively simple fare. Wonderful dog :) These old RPPCs were often loved half to death. pinholes in two of the corners, and general wear. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    When this image was taken, no more than three short years after 1900, when Henri Manuel and his brother Gaston first opened their studio in Paris, who would have guessed that among French photographers, Monsieur Manuel would soon rise to be named the official government photographer of all France! But, in 1903, or so, he was still photographing the antics of tangled twins in mermaid gowns! Ah well, c'est la vie! :)

    Just so charming. Six young ladies in costume for a theatrical production, and beautifully posed for this RPPC (Real Photo Post Card). RPPCs are postcard images produced from local studio, or even amateur "home," photographer's negatives in extremely limited runs, often for friends or family only. They are, by their very nature, the rarest postcard images of all. Interesting RPPCs are prized by collectors, and also by artists who might make use of such images in their art work, and appreciate that an original print of such an image is often as close to unique as one can practically get.

    R. Guilleminot, Bœspflug et Cie, was not a publisher of postcards, or a photography studio, but rather a company, founded in the 1850s, that manufactured photo print paper and plates. They distributed their print stock and plates internationally. Nord et Pas de Calais is probably where this image was taken. It is the northernmost of the 27 French regions, and shares a border with Belgium.

    A lovely, unposted card circa 1910s. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

    Fraulein Eva was born in 1899 Berlin as Elly Giese. As a young girl, she worked in the cigarette manufacturing industry, but by age 19 was being cast in silent films. She received leading roles immediately, mainly in comedies, and playing mostly adolescent girls. This was, for her, a very lucky thing indeed, since 1918, the year she began a successful career in film, was also the year the war ended, and a terrible economic depression was just around the corner from descending on Germany, whose people had already undergone great privations in the years leading up to the war's end.

    Her career, though successful, was a relatively short one, mostly spanning the 1920s. She did make a few films into the 1930s, but whether she simply didn't catch on with the "talkies," or didn't see eye to eye with the Nazis, who gained power in the 1930s, is not a question we were able to answer through our research, though doubtless we'll learn more in future.

    Lovely bit of early 20th century French popular iconography! This is one of several beautiful religion-oriented postcards we're offering this week in which the images, though classic, make use of then contemporary style and fashion elements. This one really verges into the Art Deco, don't you think?

    Caroline Otero, commonly known as La Belle Otero, was one of the most famous entertainers of late Belle Epoque Paris. She was also infamous as a consort over whom industrialists and royalty challenged one another to duels, showering her with diamonds and property making her a very wealthy woman at the height of her popularity. We're rather pleased with the bio of her we put together on our blog site. Please follow this link if you'd like to learn more about this fascinating dancer's life:

    http://redpoulaine.blogspot.com/2012/09/la-belle-otero-last-of-les-grandes-trois.html

    A very interesting, deeply embossed, mixed media postcard. Probably quite rare and in nearly perfect, unposted condition! The facial portrait of Otero was probably from a Leopold Reutlinger photo taken in Paris, and the card itself was likely printed in Germany for the British market. A lovely card.

    Lovely embossed postcard. We think the stage artiste may have been Juliette Méaly, a famous Parisian cabaret performer and a model for post-impressionist Henri Toulouse Lautrec. Probably a German postcard printed for the British market circa 1906-1910. Excellent condition.

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.

    We named this one "Look Twice" because the listing image doesn't give you the whole image at first glance. Family pet? Relative who fell afoul of the fairies? We laugh every time we see this card :) The sheep looks so very, I dunno...happy...don't you think?

    Lebender Marmor, or Living Marble. One of a very popular postcard series in which the models, often in classical costume (or, as in this case, almost entirely out of costume :), were posed and made up to resemble marble statues. This one is a real beauty!
