PORTRAIT OF A FASHIONABLE WOMAN AND HER BEAUTIFUL GREYHOUND (1941)

This vintage Italian real photo postcard features a pretty and fashionable woman and her elegant greyhound. She is holding the leash tightly. The woman is wearing four flowers on her jacket. Perhaps she was at a dog show and the photo was taken after the competition. The message on this postcard was written in 1941. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans). ADDENDUM: A visitor has corrected me about the dog’s breed. The dog is a Borzoi and not a Greyhound.

  1. She seems to be holding artificial flowers against her chest. You can see the long stem if you look closely..

  2. Interesting – WW II is in full swing, Italy is invading other countries and sending its citizens to Nazi death camps, and this card praises the rich and beautiful as if nothing else of importance is happening.

  3. The dog is not a greyhound, it is a borzoi. And, yes, she is holding the flowers.
