    Enrico Caruso, 1873-1921, was an Italian tenor who thrilled audiences all over Europe and the Americas. He sang in St. Petersburg for the Czar, appeared before the King of England by royal command, was 18 seasons lead tenor with the Met in New York, and was the first recording artist ever to sell a million copies of a record (an early recording of Vesti la giubba from Pagliacci).
    Fame and fortune, however, did not come quickly or easily to Caruso. He came from a relatively humble background in Naples Italy, and according to a really fine Wikipedia article, he was 18 years old before he bought his first new pair of shoes with money he'd earned singing.

    How do we know this card dates back to around 1905 as we suggest in this listing title? Well, apart from our amazing powers of psychic card dating :), cards published in Germany, as this one was, seldom had divided backs before 1904, and oh, we read a newspaper article taken from a 1906 New York Times which made a huge deal about a never before seen mustache-less Caruso! Such fun. Brief and amusing. You can read it too. Link below.

    To hear an early recording of Signor Caruso singing the marvelous Vesti la giubba from Pagliacci (the aria he sold a million records of), follow this link to a youtube video. This is the aria that so many Hollywood styled Italian gangsters are portrayed as weeping to, but we'll let youse guys in on a little secret. You don't gotta be a tough guy. Red weeps buckets whenevah dis here song is played :) Link below.

    Caruso lived a remarkable life and brought joy to millions with his gorgeous voice. In 1921, at the age of 48, he succumbed to a kidney infection resulting from undiagnosed pleurisy.

    This is such a great image. Gorgeous tones and contrast. It was printed in Germany for what looks very much like a German publishing house with offices in London, Breitkopf and Haertel, and also there is a shared attribution with the Parisian music publishers, Costallat et Cie. Very nice unposted condition.

    We are guessing that this card was printed in Germany in right around 1910. Absolutely charming! What about those little striped stockings. Hand tinted in beautiful vibrant colors. Very minor corner and edge wear, otherwise a fine, posted card.

    Geraldine Farrar. She really was adorable! Perhaps some film enthusiast out there will share our memory of a scene from the wonderful film "The Third Man," in which Valli, performing onstage, and wearing a powdered wig like Miss Farrar's, shares a smile with the audience, thereby "breaking the fourth wall," as they say. This image, for us, immediately brings that scene to mind.
    Geraldine Farrar was born in 1882, in Massachusetts, In 1901 Berlin she enjoyed tremendous acclaim following her debut as Marguerite in Gounod's Faust. One of her fans was the eldest son of the Kaiser, Crown Prince Wilhelm, with whom she was reputed to have had an affair.
    Returning to the United States, Miss Farrar was a member of the Met, from 1907 until her retirement in 1922. In between opera seasons she appeared in a number of silent films, and was followed about by crowds of enthusiastic young women who earned the name Gerry-flappers!
    This is a gorgeous card, probably printed very early on in her career while she was still in Berlin.

    Belle Epoque Violin Playing Robot, circa 1905

    In the French newspaper Le Gaulois, #9558, there is a notice of the appearance, on December 15th, 1903, at 8:30 PM at the Olympia Theater in Paris, of La Motogirl. Now, we don't know if she was actually a robot who played the violin and dreamed of becoming a real girl, or if she was a real girl who played the violin and had always dreamed of becoming a robot. But, she was certainly billed as a violin playing robot, and in this image, she really does look like one.

    Appearing on the same bill that evening was Helene Dutrieu, known as La Fleche Humaine, or the Human Arrow, who was to become a famous pioneer aviatrix (the Girl Hawk!), but on that evening was probably reprising her act of earlier in the year at the Eldorado club in Marseilles, where she, as a world champion bicycle racer, performed the stunt of cycling a loop inside a vertical track. Mlle Dutrieu was also an automobile racer. This gal liked to go fast!

    This is clearly a fine item to be added to any collection of entertainment ephemera from this period.
    The print, itself (full disclosure), is less than really fine. Particularly bothersome is the visible ghost appearance of the horizontal lines on the reverse of the card, showing through a bit on the front.

    And where is the girl who looks after the sheep?
    Why, under the haystack, of course!

    Wonderful card, which although very tame by today's standards, we will file under the heading of "risque" by those antiquated standards of yesterday. We particularly love the use of red coloring, casually applied onto the image surface in an almost impressionistic fashion. Wonderful early tinted postcard in really wonderful condition. This same model changes this costume for one of an Algerian belly dancer in another card we just acquired. Please follow link below to see it!

    Remarkable image, remarkable in particular for the quality of coloration. This card illustrates very well the quality possible with the Steglitz oranotype. The sweet little girl is wearing Mama's silk brocade gown, but just marvel at the tinting. This is hand coloration mimicking the kind of color blending we find today in lovely dupioni silks. We believe the classic term for this is "shot" silk, a process in which the warp and weft of the fabric are of two different complimentary colors which, when woven together produce an iridescent effect. That a hand colorist can "imply" this silk weaving technique is really amazing!
    This card was posted in 1905, and the photograph was by one Skowranek, possibly Otto Skowranek who, if this is the same man, which seems likely, is well known today primarily for his nude photographs, one in particular, of the famous dancer Olga Desmond posing semi-nude amidst upended swords. Some of his work was featured recently in a Berlin exhibition of early nude photography.
    We have only seen any of this Skowranek's images from within this particular series, in which the child is depicted dressing up, prancing about, drinking tea, etc., with a number of different color variations, this one always having been our favorite. We're very pleased to have found one of these in such nice condition to share with you.

    Here at Red Poulaine, we have a special place in our hearts for the Italian actress images of the early 1900s and into the 1920s. The quality of the portrait photography and subsequent postcard publication was particularly rich, with a flair for the dramatic and mysterious. Many of our favorites, like Anna Fougez and Nella Regini, began their careers as sciantose, a variation on the French term chanteuse, meaning female singer, but bringing to it other meanings, and implying a dark, mysterious, exotic quality that appealed to the theater going public at the time, and certainly appeals to us :) Naturally we love all of our images or we probably wouldn't purchase them for our shop, and feel an almost filial affection for the performers onto whom we project imagined personalities and traits (is that weird? :), but there is something about what seems to have been at the time a very Italian penchant for carrying the illusion of the stage and screen out into the public venue, a tendency to make even larger, the already "larger than life" persona of the theatrical personality, that we really love. So we have decided to open a new section devoted exclusively to these Italian artistes. We call it "La Bella Donna," and yes it is a bit of a play on words, given the tendency in many of these cards to focus on qualities of a "femme Fatale" type. We hope you will enjoy these images as much as we do.

    Wonderful image of Yvonne (also Ivonne) De Fleuriel (1889-1973), born Adele Croce, she was a greatly beloved singer who rose to fame as a sciantosa (Italian for the French word chanteuse, or singer, but with a kind of "femme fatale" connotation attached) in Naples.
    When Paris was the center of theatrical entertainment, but also because so many of us tend to find what is "foreign" to be romantic and alluring, it was not very uncommon for Italian and Russian actresses of the period to take on French names. Particularly in Italy, the development of a romantic public image was absolutely essential, to the degree that young performers starting out, sometimes found it difficult to afford a "claque" of fans. It was a common practice to pay such an entourage who would cheer your arrival on a train and applaud in an audience. Those performers who tried to buck the system were, on the other hand, sometimes catcalled and booed by the unpaid claque. This kind of harassment, almost a variety of protection racket really, was deeply ingrained in the system, a fact that a young and impoverished Enrico Caruso, also a Neopolitan, learned to his chagrin when at an early performance in his home town of Naples, he was harassed by such a group. He was so embarrassed and unhappy with this that he vowed never to perform in that city again, and although after becoming the world's most famous operatic tenor, he gave performances in Italy, he kept his word, and never performed in Naples, but only visited to enjoy a plate of Spaghetti Napolitana. Oh Mama! Perfetto! :)

    We are rather excited about this one! Posted in 1912, in the neighborhood of two years before her first film role, we believe this to be an early unidentified image of Theda Bara, the Queen of all Hollywood Vamps.
    Though several years younger in this, than in most of the images we can find of her, and tinted in pink and lavender, when we are so used to seeing her garbed in stark, gothic, black, her features are nevertheless unmistakable, and even in 1912, she had mastered the classic "I will devour you" look that brought her such undying fame.
    By 1912, Miss Bara had long since left her home town of Cincinatti, moved to New York, and four years previously had made her Broadway debut in "The Devil." Also in New York, was the well known Broadway showgirl photographer Jacob Schloss. In addition to dressing up his actress models in wreaths of Spring blossoms (a la Professor Stebbing),Schloss made a common practice of of selling prints of his work to European postcard publishers, and although the actress would, even on European postcard versions, normally be identified, along with his well known "Schloss NY" identifying signature, the common practice at the time was to take the earlier identified images, and hand-tint or otherwise decorate them, at which point identifications were left off, and the card offered to a broader market of standard "glamor" shot buyers. We are confident that this is what occurred in this case, and are presently doing our best to locate the original image.
    Postcard images of Theda Bara are almost impossible to find on the open market these days, and a rare early pre-movie star image is well...almost priceless. But still lacking appropriate proof, we've set a price.

    Gorgeous image of a woman in a traditional lace headdress. Please note a narrow, horizontal bulge in this card, above the woman, caused by the way it was glued into an album or onto a backing at some previous time. It doesn't really disturb the remarkable image, but we mention it anyway.

    Gabrielle Robinne was one of France's greatest theatrical treasures. Here, the famous Reutlinger captured her beauty and those amazing, amazing eyes, in this wonderful portrait. Dated 1907, this card goes back to just after the period in which the backs of cards were for the addresses of sender and recipient only, and all text was written on the front side. The sender of this card was still stuck in the "front side" mode, and there is rather a lot of writing on the front. It doesn't really harm the actual image, but we'll discount the card anyway.
