DEBORAH VOLAR : IN MERVEILLEUSES : THE MARVELLOUS WOMEN : RPPC

This vintage real photo postcard features singer and actress, Deborah Volar. Navy and Army magazine (1905) has an article about the performer in which she is described as a young “prima dona” (she was 21). The article reports that Volar was appearing at the Apollo Theater, and that she had made her debut two years earlier in “The Country Girl” at the Daly Theater. This postcard photo shows Volar in costume for her role in “The Merveilleuses”. The title can be translated as “The Marvellous Women”. Historically, these women lived at the end of the 18th century and were known for their outrageous style of fashion and behavior. Their fashion style was neo-classical and naked legs and toes challenged the mores of the day. These women were expressing their freedom through fashion.  “The Merveilleuses” was a musical play that can be categorized as a love story. Twelve photographs of Deborah Volar can be found in Great Britain’s National Portrait Gallery. This vintage postcard was published by Rotary Photo as part of a series (No.1730G). The card was printed in England and is in fair condition (see scans).
