MEATY FLEURON : POSTCARD QUEEN : DANCE HALL STAR : PHOTO BY ORICELLY

This vintage real photo postcard features Meaty Fleuron, a dancehall artist from the Belle Epoque era. Meaty was a singer and a dancer. She was one of the “Postcard Queens” popular at the turn of the century. In other words, she was a prolific postcard model. She made her debut at the European Concert hall in 1895. She is noted for appearing in “swimsuit roles”. Her sister, Lise Fleuron was also a performer. This postcard was published by LF Co. which I believe, but am not certain, is Labouene Freres. Miss Fleuron was photographed by the Oricelly studio for this postcard. Oricelly was based in Paris, France. This postcard has corner wear and is in overall good condition (See Scans).

  1. “Meaty” !?

  2. Red Poulaine, a very knowledgeable postcard collector states that Meaty’s name is pronounced “may-ah-tee”. Certainly more socially acceptable than the English pronunciation.
