PRETTY EDWARDIAN YOUNG WOMAN AND HER WHIMSICAL HAT

This vintage real photo postcard features a beautiful young woman and her whimsical hat. She is looking over her shoulder and looking coyly at the photographer. The postcard was published by Paul Finkenrath, the Berlin postcard publishing and printing business. It is part of a series. (no. 1018). The Paul Finkenroth company made quality photo postcards and the company was heavily oriented toward export. They were known to be responsive to printing postcards that they’re customers desired over time. They were quite profitable but closed in 1911 when protective tariffs interfered with their business. The company was established by Paul Finkenrath and Paul Grasnick in 1897. The partnership lasted about a year and then Grasnick left to start his own lithography studio. The postmark on this postcard indicates that it was stamped in Kortrijk, a Belgian city in the Flemish province of West Flanders. It was postmarked in 1916 and has a Belgian stamp.

  1. Back when I tried knitting (mastered the chain stitch), and being influenced by Tolkien’s Dwarves, I made myself a hat that was shaped like this. At the time, I was much too embarrassed to wear it, as it was all one color and not nearly this attractive. I’d love to have one like this, and would wear it everywhere now.
