PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY DANCER WEARING AN UNUSUAL RISQUE COSTUME

This vintage real postcard features a costumed young woman. The image is a bit risque for it’s time. There is a lot of leg showing. The costume is an enigma. What culture or ethnicity is her costume meant to represent. Her hat is best described as sombreroesque. One collector has hypothesized that she is a cowgirl. Perhaps she is a dancer. I am not sure why her outfit has fringes only over the right arm and the left leg. Did the designer run out of material? Just kidding. This postcard likely has an interesting background story but I am afraid that it is lost to history. An inscription on the front of the postcard indicates that the postcard is from 1920. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. My notion is that — it being 1920 — Tom Mix era — Vaudeville era — she is a dancer flapper cowgirl. Or some manager’s idea of one.
