I need to temper my words in my description of this lovely vintage real photo postcard. The previous owner of this postcard had many Judaica postcards in their collection. They described this postcard as featuring a pretty young Jewish woman wearing a dress with a low neckline. Although there is no Hebrew writing on the reverse of this postcard, as well as no identification of a Jewish name of the subject, I held the likely assumption that the card came from an album or collection belonging to a Jewish family. It seemed like a relatively safe assumption until I noticed the logo on the bottom left hand corner of the front of the postcard. The logo includes a six-pointed Star of David. Preliminary research could not identify a postcard publisher that uses this logo. I can’t help but wonder if the Star of David logo is the reason why the previous owner identified the young woman subject of this postcard as being of the Jewish faith. Personally, I would not accept the logo as evidence of the religion of this woman. Did I mention that she has beautiful eyes? This postcard dates back to the very early 1900’s (c 1910’s). The postcard is in very good condition (see scans). SOLD
