“THATS ENTERTAINMENT”: A PRECIOUS LITTLE GIRL AND HER ACCORDION

This vintage photo postcard captures a most adorable wide-eyed little girl sitting on a wooden chair and holding an accordion. The girl’s expression is precious. She seems happy to be posing for this photograph. She is sitting in front of a collection of her toys including a nutcracker man, a dog on wheels, and a doll. The accordion has the logo of the Cucciolo company. This company operated in Italy and this postcard is likely of Italian origin and produced in the 1930’s. Printing on the reverse of the postcard indicates that the postcard was published on Agfa postcard paper. Founded in 1867, “Actien-Gesellschaft fur Anilin-Farrikation” (AGFA) produced chemical liquids for photography. In 1913, the company becgan to produce postcard papers. The company’s primary factory was located in Berlin, Germany.

  1. Good day and Happy New Year!! The nutcracker man behind the little girl is a wooden Pinocchio – a classic Italian toy. Meanwhile, “Cucciolo” means “puppy” in English. I don’t know if there was a company by this name, or if perhaps it is the model name of the accordion.
